The directions said to apply it to the areas with arthritis and then rub it in. I got some of it and some bengay because I have bad rheumatoid
arthritis in all knuckles and such and I work a factory job with major hand work all night long.
So I thought the capsaisin was like icy hot and slathered it on thick like lotion, rubbed it in and did a second thick coat and rubbed it in too.
Now my hands are napalm times 100000000000000000000000000000000 and red, so much pain, blistering a wee bit (if the few white dots are blisters and
not the normal skin coming back from being red) and omg. I had NO idea this stuff was freakin' hot pepper spray. And only after sobbing online did I
find out that you're to put a tiny dab on and use gloves. that was NOT on the box or bottle of capsaisin.
I'm hurting and ugh. took the stuff back and got money back. I have done water, milk, rubbing alcohol, sour cream, toothpaste, and vaseline and
nothing works. nothing. Been about 3.5 hours and no relief. I hope this will pass soon.
So just a warning.
Don't use this stuff unless you know what it is. It should NOT be an over the counter thing. What if a kid or elderly person or someone with far more
sensitive skin than I got hold of it? Not all of us know what 'capsaisin' is - we just see 'great arthritis pain relief' and run with it hoping
for help, not hades.
I have never been affected by napalm, but I have a feeling this is what it feels like. HOTTER AND HOTTER AND HOTTER. i'm almost sickeningly curious
just how hot this crap can get. Scary stuff.
