We are Certified



This product is employed to alleviate minor aches and pains in the muscles and joints, including conditions such as arthritis, backache, and sprains. Menthol and methyl salicylate, present in the product, are classified as counterirritants. They operate by inducing sensations of coolness and warmth on the skin. These sensory effects divert attention from the deeper aches and pains within the muscles, joints, and tendons, providing relief.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is designed for topical use only on the skin. Avoid application near the eyes, mouth, nose, or genital areas, and take care not to touch those regions while the medication is on your hands. If accidental contact occurs, flush the affected areas with plenty of water. Ensure you wash your hands thoroughly before inserting contact lenses.

If you are using the lotion, spray, or foam, shake the bottle well before application.

Apply a thin layer of the medication to the affected area no more than 3 to 4 times a day. Gently and thoroughly rub it in. After applying the medication, wash your hands unless you are using it to treat the hands. If treating the hands, wait at least 30 minutes after application before washing your hands.

Avoid applying this medication to injured or irritated skin (such as cuts, scrapes, or sunburn). Do not bandage or tightly wrap the affected area, as doing so may increase the risk of side effects. It is permissible to loosely cover the area to protect clothing; consult your pharmacist for more details.

Heat can heighten the risk of side effects. Refrain from applying this medication immediately before, during, or after activities that increase skin temperature (such as bathing in hot water, swimming, sunbathing, or heavy exercise) or in hot/humid weather. Wait until your skin has cooled before applying the medication. Do not use a sunlamp/tanning bed, hot water bottle, or heating pad on the treated area.

This product is available in various strengths and formulations with similar-sounding names. Read the label carefully to ensure you have the correct product. If you have any questions, consult your pharmacist.
