Itchy reaction after several applications
You may need to stop using Pennsaid.
An oral antihistamine tablet such as Benadryl or Loratadine may help the itch or you could try an OTC hydrocortisone cream.
Have you tried an oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as diclofenac or naproxen? You may find these more tolerable.
See you doctor or pharmacist for more advice.
