I'm in a visit to UK for a week. Today, all of a sudden my back started hurting. Maybe I've moved incorrectly but I don't remember I lifted up anything heavy. Any suggestions of an OTC cream that I can get to soothe pain and make movements pain-free until I get back home?

Welcome to the UK ;p

Your best bet is to go into a pharmacist (there's usually several of them in any town centre, or just go to Boots) and ask the pharmacist's recommendation. There's certainly gels and stuff for sprained muscles, but I wouldn't know what to recommend.

NCOT, thank you so much.
I'll do that in rhe early morning and see what they recommend. I think that these gels are local so I don't think there is anything to worry about with regard to the irritation of Crohn's.
