Hey folks,
Has anyone got any suggestions for this little puzzle or am I being a bit "special" ;-) !(New meds honest)lol

I use capsicain cream for arty knees,hips etc but for hands I have now been given a brufen cream for my hands.
So, the quandry is .... How do you wash ur hands so as not to get cream on food etc .. Without washing the cream from ur fingers??
At the moment I am putting the cream on the backs of hands using left fingertips for right hand and vice versa and then using a baby wipe on palms with fingers closed :-)

I would appreciate any more ideas u guys have !!!
Thanks ever so much x0x0


  • Then apply to wherever especially capsicain cream which can burn especially if you have an itchy nose oww. I've also used a washcloth then rub it in but it seems to get absorbed in the cloth. I haven't used cream for a long time though. Charry

  • Hi charry,
    Thanx for tip !!! Yes capsicain is a little bit naughty isn't it ??ROFL Yup! I have over time got in in every sore place u can think of lol!! I think maybe, until u do this, we are not getting the FULL capsicain experiance :-)

    Not used for a while?? I don't know about you but I am my own worst enemy with this lol - I never keep using capsicain long enough to break the "My skin is burning so much, I think I may have leprosy (sorry - bad taste)"cycle and therefore don't know really if the burning ever really stops ? Maybe I'll find out one day huh? Lol

    Bramble (colicky horse) is like a different animal today !!!!! Nobody thought she was going to get up! Dave fitted a nutcracker earlier to stop her cribbing so ..... Fingers X'd !!

    Thank you once again charry - lots of hugs ((((0)))) xx
