In my case the answer is an outright no. It was about as effective as spraying Windex on it.

I have a gout attack at the moment with no medication on hand, no ice pack either. Someone gave me Voltaren gel and told me to try. I didn't at first bit I got desperate so I rubbed a little on and it took most of the pain off almost instantly. I mean I know of I put pressure on it it'll hurt but right now I feel a lot better. Hope it gets better over time.

This product is highly effective in gout. For me, I ice the joint affected, dry it and apply voltaren gel. Be sure to sllow the gel to dry on the gout (takes about 8-10 minutes). My rheumatologist prescribed this product and it works great.

I use Voltaren gel on my gout (toe) and it works very well to relieve the pain and reduce the swelling.

Yes, to answer the the question. It will definitely help reduce the inflammation and pain level.
I use Voltaren Gel for my bad knees. Was having a gout incident, despite using allopurinol and watching the 'purine' levels of the foods I eat. Tried the gel on my ankle (where this gout attack was happening). Like I said. . . It clearly helped.

Unlikely, my one experience of gout was just misery. It was a long time ago, but I recall taking a lot of nurofen to no effect. The other two were voltaren (made me sick) and feldene (AU name). Like I said it was a long time ago.

Stephen, you should NOT answer questions like this if you have not had any experience with it. I have had many gout attacks. The Voltaren Gel does help, considerably. You have probably made that person miss-out on some long needed relief. Shame on you. If you know not - say not. Speculation is not healthy in this case,

Never worked for me, tried it several times.

@lovnmyreadhead, shame on you for being for being an opinionated snowflake. Re read what I said.
