Capzasin Reactions


I tried Capzasin-HP for the first time today. The reaction with the burning is worse thatn the actual pain of my arthritis. How do I get it to STOP? It won't stop burning no matter what I do.

Is capsaicin effective for leg ulcers?


I have read the capsaicin can be useful in healing sores. A n 83 year old friend has chronic sores on her legs, and I wonder if capsaicin in some form would be indicated for treating these. She has tried a multitude of remedies with little relief.

OH. MY. GOSH. My mom bought this stuff in the states and gave it to
Me because I have such a sore back. I had my wife put some on my back and it did
Nothing, my thighs are a bit sore from raking leaves yesterday so I put
Some on both thighs. THEY ARE ON FIRE!!!! Absolute worse burning pain I've ever had. Thank goodness I looked this up and stumbled across these reviews because I put vinegar on right away and the burning is still there a bit but it's bearable enough now I think I can go to sleep. I hope this doesn't sound like I've downplayed this. IT
WAS HELL. I threw that crap away and I hope it goes to HELL where it came from.
DONT EVER USE!!! What if my sweet little daughter had gotten a hold of this and rubbed it on her legs or something. I would have been horrified. It took 30-45 mins to even begin its horrible burning. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. DoTerra makes
A "deep blue rub" that works amazing and doesn't burn your skin off!! I would recommend that instead.

THIS IS SERIOUSLY.....SERIOUSLY THE WORST medication cream ever invented. if you want to torture your enemy use this crap. The United States Government needs to get a hold of this shit and torture the ISIS with it.....i am seriously they will give up there left testicle and entire comrades if this ever touched their skin. My Boyfriend says he seriously wants to find who ever made this and sock them in the face. To stop or subside the burning Calamine Lotion really works, and its the best product ever invented.

Doesn't burn me when I apply it. The instructions say to not apply with bare hands. I wear a thin rubber glove and use a cotton pad to apply. If you manage to get it on you try milk or another creamy dairy product. Also says this product takes weeks to work.

Worst remedy ever. I wish I had researched this before I bought it. I have shoulder pain so I purchased this and applied this yesterday hoping for some relief. I was fine all night-the pain in my shoulder wasn't any better BUT the burning didn't start until I went outside today with my dogs. I kept thinking I had burned my hand while grilling dinner the day before. I kept getting worse and I had to consider what I had done with this specific hand that I had not done with the other and then it dawned on me. This horrible product is causing this mess. I have tried all of he things on this site that everyone mentioned and still have no relief. Not sure what to do next. MORE RESEARCH I guess. Its bizarre though because the part of my shoulder where this was applied doesn't have any burning UNLESS I go into the sunshine but my hand will not stop burning. I didn't wake up with the burning is came on gradually throughout the morning after it was applied over several hours.

Severe, unbearable burning pain from this cream. I tried soap and water and it didn't work. I finally smeared sour cream on the area and it took the pain away immediately.

Thank you for posting your remedy for the terrible burning from this capsaicin. As other posts mention, I used olive oil then vinegar. The burning decreased substantially. Then, I finished it off with sour cream and the relief was complete. THANK YOU!!!

My wife used it and thought her hands were on fire and going to blister. The way we stopped the burning was to wash hands in alcohol twice. This stuff is dangerous, just think if a child accidently got their hands on this.DO NOT USE

Awful stuff. Applied to back felt no pain relief or even burning there but my hand I used to apply it was on fire for hours. So painful! Applying olive oil then rinsing with cold water and then pouring vinegar on my hand brought pretty good relief.

This stuff should not be sold over the counter. The burning pain from applying this to my wrist area was unbearable. I dread to think how it would have felt on a larger or more sensitive area. For me, the burning sensation worsened after going outdoors into the heat. Luckily, I found those site when I returned home and did some research. Wish I had done that before wasting $11 on this dangerous product. I got some relief from the olive oil remedy posted earlier.

Caution: Do not use unless you want to exasturbate your symptoms.
Worst product I have ever used! The burning sensation is like my skin is on fire.
How can they manufacture a product intended to provide relief as it states on the label but instead makes you want to tear your skin off. Going outside in the heat and sun makes the intensity even more unbearable. It is summer now, so now I just have to wait and stay inside until this wears off? It almost makes me want to contact the FDA so they know how bad the side effects really are.

The burning sensation this product caused was far more painful than the pain I was trying to relieve in the first place. It lasted hours and was impossible to get rid of. Avoid this product.

As every comment before me, I also experienced an awful burning sensation after using this product that would not go away. This is what eventually worked for me: wash burning area with cold water and soap, apply vegetable or Olive oil to the area then rinse off oil with cold water. Feeling much better now.

Hope this helps,
Michelle

Same as the rest. My 93 year old mother got a hold of this stuff and thoroughly applied to both knees. Said she was up and down all night trying to get relief. I just applied a small amount to my right ankle and top of my foot 2 hours ago and it's still burning. Slowly dissipating but very slowly. I just applied olive oil and wiped area as one just mentioned. Helped very little wouldn't go out and buy any just for this but maybe the oil base in capsacin oil bonds with olive oil and the vinegar cleans it away. Don't know but is feeling better already. Just give it time and this to shall pass.

The worse ointment I ever used I was almost crying out loud with the burning sensation and pain. I used vinegar to break down oils... I got relief on my knees but my feet are burning like I dropped hot coals on it. Back to the kitchen to put more vinegar... if using do with caution., Very, very, very hot, burning sensation. Cannot imagine a child touching it.... again terrible

I WISH I WOULD OF LOOKED UP THIS MEDICINE BEFORE I USED IT! LIKE ALL THE OTHER COMMENTS ON HERE, THE BURNING IS UNBEARABLE. I HAVE FIBROMYALGIA AND I'D RATHER SUFFER PAIN FROM THAT INSTEAD OF THE BURNING OF MY HANDS. IT WILL NOT GO AWAY. I WASHED MY HANDS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, USED ICE PACKS TO COOL THE BURN AND BOUGHT ALOE VERA. NOTHING HELPED. THIS SHOULD BE A PRESCRIPED MEDICINE AND NOT AVAILABLE OVER THE COUNTER! I WILL NEVER, EVER USE IT AGAIN AND I WILL ADVISE ALL MY FIBRO SISTERS NOT TO USE THIS PRODUCT OR ANYONE ELSE I KNOW!!!!!!

Terrible Burning Sensation!!!! Would rather have the pain. Finally found some relief thru hours of research high fat milk or yogurt products. This can reduce the discomfort and may help to remove the remaining oils.
