This is not a lottery topic, but I need some help with a senior citizen, they cannot take medication, so I need for someone to give me a name of a tried and true arthritis cream or rub that is good to apply to this individual on a daily or nightly basis to help with some of the pain. any and all opinions accepted. Thanks so much for your help and opinions....

Any products that contain capsaicinoids or common term (capsaicin) ingredients found in hot peppers.

I agree with four4me & winner. (Mike too - Zostrix is capsaicin if I'm not mistaken) But there are many different types of arthritis, just like there are many different allergies. I spent a month in a chronic pain hospital many years ago and got a lot of feedback from people suffering with arthritis and they liked Arnica Oil too which I use for back pain.

WD40 looks debatable after doing a google.

Aspercreme. Do not use WD-40 it contains kerosene and other volatiles.

Zostrix cream or here is an old time remedy :crush a cayenne pepper and place it in a bottle of rubbing alcohol(let it sit for a few days)then just use on arthritic areas

Arnica oil was available at my local health food store, but at that time I lived in MA. You can find it online too. I use Vitacost.com for most of my vitamins & massage oils but only when I buy a lot of herbal teas and other things, since there is a $4.99 shipping charge (which is reasonable) since you can buy an unlimited amount of items. The oil is very expensive (at least to me) since 3.4 oz of the oil will cost about $15 although it goes a long way. I've seen creams and gels, but I've never tried them. I just googled the word Arnica and there is an article from the University of Maryland about its uses. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/arnica-000222.htm
I don't have any now or I'd look at the brand. Think it was Weleda. When I used to get massages regularly (I had insurance that covered it!) some therapists used it on my sore back muscles. I tried Emu oil (didn't hit me at the time it was from the Emu bird) and didn't have much luck, but it might be different for arthritis. Try calling a local vitamin store or place where they sell herbs.
