Has anyone ever tried this? My doctor has me putting it directly on my toes. The cream causes a burning sensation and it does distract me from the pain a bit. I think it's made from the oil of a hot pepper and the burning is meant to make your body release pain fighting endorphins. My doctor said it may help the nerve endings to become less sensitive. Where applied, it heats up during a hot shower. I like that, since I ALWAYS have trouble with my foot in the shower. I don't take nerve pain meds anymore and I'm looking for something that can help, other than increasing meds. Has anyone else used this for nerve pain?
