Zostrix Topical Analgesic Cream gives temporary supplementary pain relief for arthritis.

Zostrix Topical Analgesic Cream may be useful for the treatment of pain following shingles.

Zostrix Topical Analgesic Cream is a topical analgesic cream made from purified capsaicin, a natural extract from chili peppers. Capsaicin is believed to act on a substance in the body which is involved in transmission of pain impulses, known as Substance P.

 

It is believed that regular application of capsaicin (Zostrix) to the affected area will in time reduce the amount of Substance P in nearby nerve endings. With less of Substance P present, pain may be less intense and in some cases there may be a cessation of pain.

 

Directions:

Apply Zostrix 3 to 4 times a day, every day. Apply just enough to cover the affected area (a small fingertip is usually enough). Massage Zostrix cream into the skin on the front, back and sides of the affected area until no residue remains.

 

Ingredients:

Capsaicin 0.025% w/w. Benzyl alcohol 1% w/w.

Warnings:

Do not apply Zostrix to broken, open or irritated skin. Do not apply heat pads or have a hot shower immediately after application. Avoid bandaging the area following application. Avoid touching the eyes, mouth or other sensitive areas.
