When rubbed into the skin, the product causes skin congestion, reddening and warming. Blood vessel dilation improves blood perfusion at the site of the pain. This causes swelling and inflammation to abate rapidly. The pain gradually eases as the inflammation subsides and the swelling goes down.
The product is used as a warming agent for muscular pain (stretching, painful muscle cramps etc.), joint pain (e.g. arthritis) and neuralgia (e.g. radiculitis, ischialgia).
Damaged skin, hypersensitivity to pepper products, salicylates or any other ingredient of the product.
Do not administer to children.
Apply over a small area. Avoid contact with the eyes and mucosae.
Do not use on damaged skin or near the mucosae. In case of accidental contact with the mucosa or the eyes, rinse with a large amount of water. In case of persisting erythema or oedema, discontinue using the product and rinse the skin with hydrogen peroxide solution or Azulan.
