Learn about various topical treatments to relieve arthritis pain and if they are right for you.
Before You Apply
Topicals may contain multiple ingredients, so check the product list before applying. Side effects are uncommon and mild, including redness, itching or skin irritation, but it’s important to talk to your doctor about proper application and possible side effects. Only apply to intact skin and avoid using tight bandages or heating devices when using counterirritants. After applying, wash your hands and discuss any changes in skin, pain or irritation with your doctor lasting more than seven days.
