The cream is called Piroxicam cream 2% is what my jar says. It is prescription only here. The other name for it is Feldene. I think it helped some other people on the board. And some posted it did not help. It took 2 days to work, applying 2 x daily. At least it does not hurt like the injections and as far as long term help it was better too.
I no longer use it as my foot seems to be healed from the physical therapy and massage. Hope it helps your immediate pain for now. Taping gave me some instant relief too, but as I said before only if taped correctly.
Good luck.
