How will I know if I can tolerate Heat Therapy?

CryoDerm Heat products contain Capsaicin; some patients are hypersensitive to this ingredient. Some patients may experience excessive redness, discomfort, blistering or experience what they perceive to be an unpleasant burning sensation. Advise patients that this product contains Capsaicin prior to application or distribution of samples.

It is advisable to place a small amount of this product on the inside of the forearm to see if it is tolerated by each patient. If the patient reacts to the product, advise them to use soap and cold water, dairy products, or olive oil to neutralize the effects of the Capsaicin. Never use hot water. 

CryoDerm Heat products also contain Camphor. It is advised that patients do not apply heating packs or cover the area as it may cause skin irritation, redness, or burning.
