A topical arthritis pain relief cream or gel is applied directly onto the site where you are experiencing pain. It is immediately absorbed and works to numb the area where pain is being experienced, allowing you to get on with your day.
Although there are products that are patches available, the arthritis pain relief cream seems to work immediately to soothe and dull the pain and to relieve aching. Lidocaine topical arthritis pain relief cream works to reduce arthritis pain by blocking the nerve signals around the site where you are experiencing the discomfort.
Lidocaine is routinely used to reduce skin irritations such as insect bites, poison ivy, cuts, scratches, burns, and hemorrhoids. It is also used for sores in the mouth and during certain dental procedures or to numb the skin if you require stitches. Being such a versatile substance, the popularity and commonality of the products that are based on it are becoming a little more known.
Commonly, you will find about a 2% to 4% concentration of lidocaine in an over the counter cream. This level, while it may seem small, is quite effective, and is also very safe to use.
The main reason why people choose this option is that it has an immediate effect. There are no adverse side effects with this type of topical cream; however, it is very important to read the directions carefully and to not over apply the product on the pain site. Most instructions indicate using about every four to five hours, as needed.
For many people who suffer the crippling effects of arthritis pain, a topical cream can bring much needed relief very quickly. Simply rubbing the compound on the effected areas and the pain nerves are numbed to allow you to feel less pain fast. It is very important to remember that if you have any allergies to any types of numbing medications, this may not be the medication for you.
Due to the fact that lidocaine based products are so effective, you should be careful where you store it. Keep it out of reach of children and pets, do not apply it to any area that is swollen, punctured or looks infected. There is not much chance of suffering from an overdose with this type of medication unless you over apply it. As there is no dosing schedule (it is used on an “as needed” basis), you should be careful not to try to make up missed applications by over applying.
If you often suffer from crippling arthritic pain, this is one of the most effective treatments you can use to finally get relief from the pain you have been suffering from.
