I am 47, slim, active, and healthy...that is until undergoing 2 surgeries/foot, simultaneously. 4 months later, my feet show only minuscule signs of recovery. I have been unable to sit with feet on the floor or to stand without intense pain, swelling, burning, and stinging. 2 weeks ago I began simultaneously using 3 products: Topricin cream, Inflammation homeopathic drops (Newton), and Inflama-Rest herbal pills. The cream & drops provided noticeable, immediate relief. Much of the pain in my feet is due to the extreme amount of heat they are producing, especially when below heart level. Most pain/inflammation products assume that heat will help & cold will hurt. My condition is the opposite. This is the only cream I have found to address the burning pain. I am amazed at the daily improvement. Before beginning these products I had to spend almost all day with my feet elevated above my heart. Now I can clean the house in short intervals & even shop. Also, I can now wear closed shoes all day & can now allow my feet under the covers at night. I have even returned to a much shortened version of my aerobic walking, expecting to gradually increase to my prior exercise level. Topricin has no strong odor & doesn't require the intense hand washing that the heating creams require. It sinks in invisibly & instantly. Another plus is that it lasts a long time. I use it about 5 times/ day & have yet to empty my first jar.

Like many treatments for arthritis, the treatment with this cream needs patience and persistence. I have used Topricin for almost 7 month and I have observed good results. At the beginning, I took anti inflammatory conventional medicine beside cream application, today I only use the cream.

I've bought this cream for my Mom. She was diagnosied with Diabetic Neuropathy and she has pain and burning in her legs all the time. She said that the cream helps a bit to ease the pain.

This is a helpful product re its stated use. In my case, however, I find the Celadrin cream much more effective for the arthritic symptoms in my shoulder.

I do find this product gives relief (maybe 50-75%) for low back, sciatic and hip bursitis with this product, however the effect doesn't last for more than a couple of hours. I didn't find it to be quite the miraculous product that some reviewers have believed, but it is certainly helpful.

It works well. It might be better if was put in a different container. I would like to see it in a tube .

I have been using Tropicin for about 5 years or more. I use it every night, rubbing it particularly on shoulders and feet. Shoulders for aging problems with tendons and Feet that could be neuropathy, (not diagnosed). I get excellent results - no pain in those areas during the day. It is easy to use, available to purchase on line which is not as expensive as in pharmacy or grocery stores.

I find Topricin to have a slight decrease of my foot neuropathy pain. The effect last for maybe 2-1/2 hrs which is a great help when you are in pain almost all day. Topricin is not a cure all or even a full pain relief medication, but it helps.

This is the only cream I've used for neuropathy in my feet that actually works. Makes my feet feel so much better!
