        Amazing Product-Works for Me

        Pros

        • Easy To Administer
        • Knocks out the nerve pain
        • No odor at all
        • No Side Effects

        Cons

        • Pain returns with heat
        • Takes a few days

        Best Uses

        • Nerve damage

        Comments about Zostrix HP, Arthritis Pain Relief Cream, 2 oz:

        I had hip surgery and sustained quad & calf damage that made the skin nerves flame with pain. I was in constant agony. At the recommendation of a Dr. who said I had to use it for 14 days, I gave it a try, starting with the lower .025 strength. I applied it 3x a day.

        It started relieving in a couple of days, and was mild, so I went to the .075 strength. After 3 weeks, I only get the pain if I work in the yard and get sweaty, or if clothing rubs the leg excessively.

        As a suggestion, when showering, I suggest using two wash cloths, one dedicated to the affected area. Otherwise, you may find yourself burning in other body parts you don't expect. Also, apply after at least an hour, when cooled down.

        It's been an amazing product for me.

        This did help my husband's neuropathy.
        It took effect slowly but lasted longer.
        Need to apply with pad and wash hands immediately.
        Don't touch eyes.
        Very helpful.
        It was recommended by his podiatrist.

              this is the hottest and best of the creams. Better yet, it doesn't smell as it's pepper based. i.e. you don't smell like an old man after you use it.

              Comments about Zostrix HP, Arthritis Pain Relief Cream, 2 oz:

              I agree with the previous review that this product is strong and can burn on cracked or sensitive skin. You may want to start with the .25% instead of the .75%. When I first tried it I had a problem with my asthma - but I have since learned that I was putting too much on and you also have to be careful to wash your hands completely before touching your nose or eyes and the same goes with touching the area you've applied it to after because it becomes a powdery film that stays on your fingers. A tiny amount (little pea) size goes a long way. I have arthritis in my hips and back - and this stuff really helps with the pain - but you have to apply it at least twice a day - every day - or the effect wears off. I use it in conjunction with the supplement "Arthritis Advantage" and it does bring relief.

              I have tried so many products of this type, and the best I have found is jointflex as it does not burn. THIS product however burns! I used only a tiny amount and within minutes the burning started (amplify ben gay by a 100) and just got more and more intense. I was up all night with my skin on fire. Wish I could give it -5 stars!
