I've used this herbal capsicum patch
for years but need to drive 2.5 hours to the closest store. The packaging and number of patches is an excellent value for the price. I noticed that there are plasters on both sides of the backing which doubles the number of plasters from the previous packaging. I would highly recommend this product for arthritic joints as well as lower back, neck, and shoulder pain.
I've been using these patches for years for joint pain and arthritis and I highly recommend them to anyone who suffers from chronic pain.This is very effective. Comes in large strips that can be cut as needed. There is a strong odor, but it doesn't bother me because I grew up in a home full of herbal medicines that smelled similar.
It can be worn in public, I have asked friends if they smell it, and they said they did not (I did not have them directly smell the product, I just asked them if they could smell it while I was walking or standing next to them). It lasts much longer than other plaster and similar patches from the drugstore. If you leave it on for a long time, there may be some redness, but I believe this is just a mild allergy to the adhesive and not necessarily the herbal formula. I am about to purchase another package, and would highly recommend this.
