FAQs on Prescription Pain and Scar Creams and My Pain Cream MD
What are pain creams?
Pain creams are formulas created with a base which is chosen by how efficiently the skin is able to absorb it. The base is combined with active ingredients that are beneficial to specific conditions. These may be painful conditions, such as arthritis and/or numerous other ailments, or for scarring.
What type of conditions can effectively be treated with pain creams?
Numerous conditions and disorders can be treated utilizing topical pain creams. The appearance of many types of troublesome scarring may be reduced with certain topical creams. Some painful conditions include symptoms stemming from arthritis; certain types of neuropathic pain; muscle sprains and strains; and post-operative pain.
Are topical treatments more effective than oral medications?
Many medical experts agree that topical creams have advantages over oral prescriptions. The first reason is that these creams are absorbed through the skin, which reduces many of the dangerous side effects that come with orally administered medications.
Another reason is the reduction of drug interaction problems. Topical creams do not eliminate all blood absorption and therefore do not entirely eliminate drug interaction, however they dramatically decrease the occurrence and severity. Another added benefit is that topical treatments take effect and bring relief much quicker, while having a decreased possibility of addiction.
Do topical creams have side effects?
There can be some side effects with the use of creams; however, the number and severity is greatly reduced when compared to those of oral medications. For example, one of the most annoying side effects of oral prescriptions is an upset stomach. Topical creams do not pass through the digestive tract, and therefore do not usually upset the stomach.
Another side effect is drug interaction due to blood absorption. Topical creams nearly eradicate blood stream absorption, therefore drug interaction is not as likely. This also allows some individuals to use creams with certain medications that could not be combined with others, or increase the dosage of the topical cream for efficiency.
Note: Individuals should always seek professional medical consult before taking any medications, oral or topical. While most side effects, blood absorption, and drug interactions are dramatically reduced, these are not completely eliminated. Individuals should seek out a professional for any medical issue.
