Arthritis Pain relief · September 23, 2016

Absorbine Jr. (methyl salicylate) "I used Absorbine Jr cream for arthritis pain relief because I am a motorcyclist that loves to ride. I love riding more than anything and I want to continue to ride until I'm 60. But when my arthritis acts up, my joints hurt and stiffen and it makes it very painful to ride. I couple times I had to pull over and have someone pick me up because I could barely drive start on the bike. Absorbine Jr gives me arthritis pain relief quick and allows me to get home without having to call someone to pick me up. While this is not a permanent solution and I will have to give up riding eventually, this product gives me more time to really enjoy what I lover to do. I will use Absorbine Jr until I can't ride anymore and it gives me a lot of joy too."

Salonpas Pain Patch (methyl salicylate) "New adhesive in Salonpas doesn’t stick well, so I found generic patches at the Dollar Tree -20 patches in a pack for $1.00, they use the old type adhesive that sticks until you remove it and works great! Really helped my arthritic knees and ankle."

Salonpas Pain Patch (methyl salicylate) "I was having knee pain so I bought the cream and a patch, rub the cream the following day my knee and the back of my thigh were inflamed and swollen with blisters and I felt like I had a fever. The swelling was so bad I could not bend my knee it took one month to get rid of the side effects, consult your Dr. This over the counter cream is dangerous."

Salonpas Pain Patch (methyl salicylate) "I’ve used these patches successfully for various conditions over the years. Contrary to some reviews, I’ve found that they stick very well on skin. They need to be applied flat. They might not adhere as well on skin that is oily, or that has folds. Make sure skin is dry and oil free. They stick better, are less expensive, and offer more relief than the major competitor’s brand of larger patches, hands down."

Salonpas Pain Patch (methyl salicylate) "Stuck on salonpas on my strained ankle and within few hours, had a patch of red rashes with blisters. 1 week later, the whole patch became scaly and thick with countless blisters that broke and crusted. This is some dangerous medicatec plaster. I never had an allergy that bad!"

"The amount of pain creams I have tried for my arthritis is honestly crazy, but the one I have stuck with for the last 7 months is Absorbine Jr. The cream moisturizes while its relieving the pain so my skin still feels healthy after using it. Some other creams I used dried out my skin and irritated it. This just feels like I'm moisturizing while also gaining pain relief to go about my daily life as usual. Honestly a life saver."

Mentholatum Pain Patch (methyl salicylate) "I'm been used Solanpas for so many many years, like I tell a few of my co-workers, and they had been used. For me Solanpas work for more that what they say, if I'm stressed, I have it in my shoulders, and that work so good, now I have knee pain, and work, only I wish the price don't go to high. I tell every one work, I did used the spray and the patch, may don't work as well for every one. But work for me and every one that I say Solanpas work"

Salonpas Pain Patch (methyl salicylate) "I bought these patches for my knee, and they work great!! I have a small knee so they were able to stay on, but if your knee is larger then the average knee won’t stay on!!"
