Did you know that chili’s can help you fight chronic pain? A molecule found in chili peppers called capsaicin is effective in reducing pain. It works by modulating the transmission of pain signals by the nervous system. Creams containing capaicin are available. A small quantity of cream is simply massaged into the painful area two or three times a day. Avoid use on open wounds. Capsaicin is an irritant to the eyes, nose and mouth, so avoid touching these areas with cream on your hands! It might take a few days for the effect to become apparent, so be persistent. Your skin may become red after applying the cream but that is a temporary effect. Of course in the rare event that you notice any kind of rash appearing, you should stop using the cream.
