Bought this while on vacation at the beach for a quick fix for arthritis in my foot. Applied as directed 12 hours later my foot was on fire! Nothing helped luckily the ocean water temperature was cool and gave releif while standing in it. I never could tell if it actually worked to busy dealing with a hot foot. Will not use again but I may give it to someone I dislike. Real expensive as well.

I heeded the warning to wash my hands after application, but I didn't know that I had to wash them 3 times with soap & water to remove all burning side effects of the ointment. Also I made the mistake of petting my cat after I washed my hands once, she liked her fur where my hands had been and got Ill. The warnings on this product are insufficient and need to be upgraded.

I'm extremely healthy and active at 52 and until recently never had to deal w/ arthritis. My Dr. suggested I use this and I'll tell you, DON'T. All it took was sitting on my back for less than 10 mins. and now it's is as red as a 2nd degree sunburn. My wife took three pics. I tried rinsing w/cool water, aloe vera, towel soaked w/milk, veg. oil and Benadryl, I'm trying anything. ... Show Full Comment

I USED THIS AT 10:00 P.M. ON MY ANKLES AND WAS AWAKENED AT 1:30 A.M. BY A BURNING SENSATION THAT FELT LIKE MY THIGHS WERE ON FIRE. I NEVER PUT THIS MEDICATION ON MY THIGHS. I HAD TO USE A WET WASHCLOTH TO COOL IT DOWN AND TAKE A BENEDRYL BEFORE I COULD GO TO SLEEP HOURS LATER. I WILL NEVER USE IT AGAIN.

Comment:
I have arthritis in my foot and it was painful to walk. My doctor suggested this as an alternative to an expensive topical prescription med. It took a couple of weeks of daily application before I felt significant relief. For me, it works very well with minimum side effects, but that could be because hot chilies and salsas are a regular part of my Southwestern diet. I do notice an increased burnin ...
