Hi, have not heard of the cream you are talking about, but would be interested in finding out also.  I work with my hands all the time and right now I can't seem to get any relief from the pain either.

I hope someone will come along that has heard or used this before.  I suppose we could ask the Pharmacist.  Interesting.

I believe this cream is commonly used for relief from arthritic pain. It's a more natural version of something like BenGay.

I've used capsaicin in the past with good results. It's made from hot peppers though, I think, so be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before touching your eyes. I've also had some luck with Traumeel cream, which is a homeopathic anti-inflammatory cream available at health food stores and Whole Foods. Sometimes I top it off with Dr. Singha's Mustard Rub, which is available in the same places, and top it off with a heating pad.

Thanks: AnnieRae, Lynnwood,Harmony... AnnieRae I'm going to try the cream I'll let you know how it works for me.
If it doesn't work I'll try traumeel cream.
Lynnwood, Harmony.... I did some reading on this, it is for arthritic pain also it is made from hot peppers. I'm just woundering how it felt when you put it on. I don't want it to bother my hands, cause of my rash. I'm sure the doc. wouldn't perscribe me somthing that would bother me but I still want to know. Thanks Debbie
