When your muscles ache or your joints hurt, topical analgesics can offer relief. Our topical analgesic compound is a medicine and an anti-inflammatory drug. It works by preventing the production of some chemicals in your body which cause pain and inflammation. It is absorbed into your skin and then moves deeper into the areas where there is inflammation. (For example, your muscles)
Topical analgesics differ from oral medication because they are applied to your skin and only affect the area that you have applied it to, instead of affecting your whole body as when you take an oral medication. Using a topical gel means that the total amount of medication in your body remains low. This in turn means that you are much less likely to have a side-effect to the medicine. Topical anti-inflammatories are prescribed for adults – they are not generally suitable for use by children.
