Zostrix Topical

Zostrix cream is used to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis.
Zostrix cream contains capsaicin (0.025%), a naturally occurring substance found in plants of the Solanaceae family. Research has shown that Zostrix cream works by reducing levels of a chemical (substance P), which is involved in transmitting pain impulses to the brain. Substance P is released into joints and activates other compounds involved in osteoarthritis. As Zostrix cream reduces the amount of substance P, it has a pain relieving effect when applied to the surface of the skin.
