    This product is a blessing. With an old compound fracture injury, this is the only medication that reduces pain drastically. Others may not realize that this is not an instant pain relief. This product must be used for at least a month to two

    I put this cream on my knees yesterday with my bare hand. I have been stinging all night and today too. I am burning so bad that I canâ??t tell if it actually helped my joint pain. Does the burning sensation ever stop? I will not use this again and I would urge others not to use it.

    I also had a bad reaction from this ointment. In 15 minutes my skin was on fire. I did not go away after rinsing it off with cold water.. then the burning sensation went to my throat and tip of my tongue. I ended of going to Urgent Care and had a shot of Decadron (cortisone. After the shot it continued to burn for 8 hours!! This should be taken off the shelves immediately!!!

Applied this product and almost immediately could bend my knees again! It was amazing! Did hurt behind the knees later that day. Won't reapply it there. Really, really hurt when I took a hot bath later the same day. Had ... Show Full Comment

    This product really does work!! it completely took away my extremely painful chronic hip bursitis. You must use gloves as it is very painful and burning to the hands and parts of the skin where you are not in pain. However it did not cause me any pain at all over my hip area. I used this cream combined with hip stretches I found on YouTube. And my pain was gone the next day amazing!! This produ ... Show Full Comment
