I have a herniated disc in my back. Because I work as a caregiver I am constantly bending, lifting, and moving around in tough positions. I haven't been without pain and have had limited range of motion for several months now and have tried every other cream out there along with my daily doses of Aleve. This stuff virtually eliminated the pain and stiffness in two doses!. I use it before work and on lunch and now can do my job with ease. Wonderful stuff! Some tips on use however: apply it with a paper towel, and use sparingly. Also, if it begins to heat up too intensely, use an ice pack over it for a while. And lastly, because it is so strong, if you want to apply it to a large area mix it with some body lotion and use gloves.

The reason I bought this was that it was unscented and didn't have an oily texture.

I was suffering from a severe strained neck, and basically nothing would relieve it except for high doses of ibuprofen and tylenol taken repeatedly throughout the day.

All those drugs in my system concerned me. I opted to see if any topical formulations would help so I tried this product.

This is their maximum strength version. Considering my pain was rather chronic, I thought this would do the trick.

All I have to say is that you try this product with certain precautions:

DO NOT USE YOUR FINGERS TO APPLY! - The active ingredient is made from chili peppers to create that heating sensation. You will suffer greatly if you get it in your eyes or nasal cavities. I use a rubber spatula.

APPLY VERY, V-E-R-Y, SPARINGLY TO SENSITIVE AREAS! The heat will not come all at once. It gradually intensifies as the day progresses, and rather fast if you perspire in that area, so BE CAREFUL! You will also more than likely see that the area you applied turn red. You might be mistaken for being sunburned or that you got scalding liquid spilled on you.

DO NOT APPLY AFTER BATHING. Applying this product to moist skin makes the product travel too quickly into your open pores and rather than a heating sensation, YOU GET AN EXCRUCIATING BURNING SENSATION! Trying to wash it off only exacerbates the problem, believe me!

Bottom line, use this product with caution at first and adjust accordingly. It's a great product and provides ultra longlasting relief. For those with sensitive skin, I suggest you try their regular formula first.

      Comments about Capzasin HP Arthritis Pain Relief Creme, 1.5 oz:

      This is really great stuff but I would not recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin. I wear disposable gloves when applying it, as it remains on my hands even after washing and can irritate my eyes if I touch them. I love the way it relieves my pain, but it is pretty high in capsaicin, the substance that gives hot peppers their flavor.

        The capzasin HP is about the only product that does help my pain. I have severe osteoarthritis in my hips and knees and feet and the capzasin does help block the pain a lot. I do use it everyday. You have to be careful though about how much you use because it does burn and make sure you wash your hands after use . Its better to use plastic gloves to apply it.

        Comments about Capzasin HP Arthritis Pain Relief Creme, 1.5 oz:

        I am totally unimpressed with this Capsazin HP Arthritis Pain Relief Creme! The name could be considered false advertising because it does not relieve pain of any kind. Yes, it absorbs quickly but that's the only positive comment I can make. For what it costs I fully expected warmth when applied and being able to feel it working. At the very least I expected it to ease my arthritis aches. It did neither. Save yourself the money and don't buy this product.

        Comments about Capzasin HP Arthritis Pain Relief Creme, 1.5 oz:

        I was having severe, sharp pain in my calf. Doctor sent me for doplar to see if there was a blood clot. There was not, and he told me to take Tylenol and apply heat. Neither helped, although the heat took some of the edge off. I found an old tube of this and rubbed in on the area. I felt a tingling in the pain area, and a bit of throbbing. Did not wash my hands immediately and noticed some burning. Then I washed my hands and all was well. It is absolutely the only product that relieves this pain which might be from sciatica. I use it liberally - then wash my hands. I don't feel the tingling anymore, just pain relief.

            This is an excellent product to improve healing of arthritis pain and muscle injuries. If you workout a lot--buy this product. You'll need it before long--it helps with sore, painful muscles. I use it as well for a compressed disk problem in my upper spine. From time to time I do too many upper body reps and it causes the compression to be worse. This allows muscles to expand and alleviates the pain. Excellent product.

              I used this product on the back of my neck and on my shoulders for some muscle pain. Big mistake! Within a matter of minutes, my skin felt like it was on fire! Next thing I know, I look in the mirror and I honestly look as though I have a severe sunburn. Finally I get it washed off and apply Neosoporin with Pain Relief plus I take some Ibuprofen and the pain is barely noticeable within an hour. This stuff not only did not work but it also caused far more pain than what I was suffering with to begin with!

              My Mom used this to put on my Grandma(cause her leg hurts).
              Then she washed her hands with soap. So then she rubed her eyes it was totally a pain. My grandma also said that her leg feels like hot water poured on it. Bad Choice!
