What is Capsaicin 0.075% cream Ketriplin-C

If you live with pain, you may know all too well how difficult it can be to manage. You may have heard of capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili peppers. When applied topically in the form of a cream, capsaicin is providing pain relief by temporarily changing the way your body processes pain.

While not everyone responds to capsaicin cream, it may help some people manage pain in conjunction with standard treatment. The cream does require regular applications and has side effects. If you’re considering trying capsaicin cream or any other form of topical capsaicin, speak to your healthcare provider to see whether it’s appropriate for you and to find out what to expect at the recommended dose.

Ketriplin-C cream is made by reputable Ajanta Pharma. The cream contains the main ingredient Capsaicin, which is the active ingredient in chili peppers that makes them hot. Capsaicin is used in medicated creams and lotions to relieve muscle or joint pain. Capsaicin is also used to help relieve minor pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis or muscle sprains and strains. This medicine will not cure any of these conditions.

Neuralgia is a pain that comes from the nerves near the surface of your skin. This pain may occur after an infection with herpes zoster (shingles or postherpetic neuralgia). Capsaicin will help relieve the pain of postherpetic neuralgia, but it will not cure the condition.

Capsaicin used on the body causes a sensation of heat that activates certain nerve cells. With regular use of capsaicin, this heating effect reduces the amount of substance P, a chemical that acts as a pain messenger in the body. Capsaicin topical in Ketriplin-C cream is used for temporary relief of muscle or joint pain caused by strains, sprains, arthritis, bruising, or backaches. Capsaicin topical is also used to treat nerve pain (neuralgia) in people who have had herpes zoster, or “shingles.”

    Worst medicine I have used in my life

  2. 2 out of 5


    Well, what can I say? When this cream works, it is a godsend. But it works for my back injury only roughly 30% of the time that I use it (if I’m lucky). It also only works when I’m active so is no good as a remedy if I’m laid up in bed with the pain. It seems to work WITH my body. So is not the best cream. But like I said, when it does work, I have some decent relief from my pain.

    This capsaicin cream was incredibly beneficial at relieving sciatica and pain caused by disc issues in my lower back. The relief was rapid and beyond my expectation. However, despite every precaution taken, it has affected my eyes, roof of mouth, throat, and lungs. I applied it carefully and washed my hands well, but it’s as though I still breathed it in. I have the taste of it in my mouth days later and a tight chest combined with a cough and a feel of throat constriction and chest tightness. As much as wish I could use this product for its amazing pain relief, what I am undergoing days after stopping it ( hot showers reactivate and disperse it from the skin with steam, so this may last a while! ) this side effect is a deal-breaker.
