How to Choose the Right Pain Relief Cream for Different Types of Pain

With so many pain relief creams on the market, how do you know which one is right for your specific type of pain? The key is understanding the different active ingredients in pain relief creams and how they work to target different pain symptoms. 

For example, creams containing menthol or camphor provide a cooling sensation that temporarily relieves minor arthritis, backache, muscle strains, and sprains. The cooling effect distracts your nerves from sending pain signals. These ingredients also increase blood flow to the area which reduces swelling.

Capsaicin creams contain the active ingredient found in hot peppers. When applied topically, it causes a mild irritating and warming sensation that blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Capsaicin is best for relieving osteoarthritis, shingles, and neuropathy pain. 

For inflammatory conditions like arthritis, look for pain relief creams containing diclofenac. This NSAID drug works by reducing inflammatory substances that cause swelling and irritation around joints and muscles.

Containing the active ingredient salicylate, some pain relief creams help relieve acute injury pain, muscle stiffness, and joint aches by reducing inflammation. The salicylate compounds diffuse deep into soft tissues.

Oral pain medications like ibuprofen and acetaminophen are also formulated into topical creams. These are ideal for temporarily relieving headaches, minor sports injuries, and other mild muscle and joint pains when you want to avoid ingesting pills.
