Any Comments on the Ibuprophen Cream?

Hi again,

Has anyone out there had any positive or negative results with the Ibuprophen Cream available through this site?

Thanks, Kimbe

I have found it helpful. Very soothing & does help with the pain.But not a CURE.

I got mine late last week, but only used it once, so I can't say if it worked or not. I'm going to try to get used to applying it regularly this week.

Also, I'm going to ask a German friend of mine to translate the instruction sheet and the box. I'll post the translation as soon as I get it.

I spoke with both my podiatrist and rheumatologist and both agreed that ibuprofen and piroxicam can not be absorbed through the skin barrier to provide an anti-inflammatory response to aid in healing; the analgesic effect may be helpful but that's all.
