I’m on holiday down in Cornwall at the moment and nipped in to a Herbery while out searching for King Arthur today (as you do). I was trying to find some cream to help with the pompholyx eczema which has been extremely bad on my foot this year and has left the skin either dry and flaking or red and sore. The lady recommended borage cream which I am trying - if nothing else the one they do is very rich and soaking in exceptionally well without leaving my foot geasy and slippery so better than any other moisturisers I’ve tried.
While there I saw capsicum cream to help with joint inflammation etc but had never heard of it so googled it once we got back to our cottage and saw that it is recommended for osteoarthritis by Arthritis UK and is available on prescription. I can’t use anti inflammatory creams such as deep heat or voltarol cream as I react to it so was wondering if this stuff might help with lupus joint pain as well as osteoarthritis. Has anyone tried it and if so did it help at all?
