Description

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.”
