Ibuprofen cream for plantar faschitis

Posted by Sue,RN,BSN on 1/21/01 at 09:56 (036998)

I just got some Ibuprofen Cream for my long-standing plantar fascitis. I
am also going to physical therapy and doing stretching, etc. I am not
sure how to use the cream because it is all written in German!!! I was
thinking that twice a day would be okay. Does that sound good to you?

I would think as often as you want would be safe. here are some instructions:

Sue, the instructions on my packet of Ibuleve (Ibuprofen gel as supplied in the UK) say 'Lightly apply a thin layer over the affected area. Massage gently untilm absorbed. Wash hands after use...re-apply as required, up to twice more dails or as instructed by your doctor.'

Sue. As a sufferer of PF for over 3 years now I would be interested in learning where and how you got this Ibuprofen Cream and if it works. Please let me know. Thank you, KenC.
