This is what trolamine salicylate is: It is similar to Salonpas without the menthol and camphor. When I first started getting the pulsing sensations in my legs, I didn’t initially think to use Aspercreme as I had thought of it only as a minor pain medication.
I've had very good luck with Kerasol Neuro Cream (OTC) for my minor nerve pain in my foot.
Of course the Epsom Salt Lotion is likely helpful for a variety of things.
I noticed the other day that touching/probing my knees in certain spots, made my feet hurt more.
So I applied the cream (it is thick), into the tops and bottoms of the front of my knees at bedtime.
I like it because it works even though I cant rub it in too deeply because the area is so sensitive to the touch.
Last night was my first application of Aspercream (the original formula).I like warm baths with Epsom Salt, mostly for muscle aches, but suspect it helps a little with nerve pain too. I have some minor to moderate pain in one foot that I could try it on.I've had some good luck with Aspercream and Topricin..funny brew for muscle aches.Using DMSO diluted with distilled water, more for my topicals too. Fibro onset at 61, Hip Replacement "mess" 72 (nerve damage, IT band damage, shorter leg). Most important supplement: grape seed extract I too use Aspercream for aches and pains with fairly good results. But recently I saw where you can buy Aspercream with Lidocaine. I used it for a backache and didn't like it as much as regular Aspercream.I tend to differentiate between muscle aches and nerve pain and seem to need different treatments.After an especially active weekend of hiking or work around the yard, your joints might continue to hurt even though you take your usual arthritis pain medication. Topical pain medications are absorbed through your skin.
