The key ingredient in most creams and ointments that helps reduce the pain and discomfort of peripheral neuropathy is capsaicin which is the chemical compound that makes hot peppers taste hot. You will realize reduced peripheral neuropathy discomfort by regularly applying capsaicin topically to the skin where your nerve discomfort is occurring. As capsaicin is absorbed through the skin and enters your nerves it depletes a chemical called substance-P which is a chemical used in the transmission of pain and sensation information in the nerve. By depleting substance-P there are fewer successful transmissions of pain through your nerves thus the apparent reduction of the pain and discomfort. If you turn to using creams and ointments with capsaicin it is vital that you use it regularly in most cases 4 times per day. You may get an additional burning sensation for a day or two when you first start using it however over time that sensation will fade and your peripheral neuropathy sensations will be diminished.
I use a capsaicin cream everyday and I have found that my peripheral neuropathy discomfort has been reduced by about 30-40% since using it. A word of warning, besides the burning you may feel for a couple of days, please make sure you only apply the cream to the area where you are having the pain and discomfort. Applied to other areas may actually produce a burning sensation in those areas that does not go away and your skin may become a little tender as mine did. I am careful not to only apply it to areas that are feeling the sensations of peripheral neuropathy.
Another common ingredient you may find in a cream or ointment is camphor. This compound has been around for centuries and it is one of the key ingredients in Vick’s VapoRub. It is considered an analgesic thus has properties that reduce the sensation of pain.
All in all most people with peripheral neuropathy will realize a level of pain and discomfort reduction by using creams and ointments designed specifically for peripheral neuropathy as long as you are disciplined and use it regularly according to the recommendations.
