Identify the cause: Neuropathy is a condition resulting from abnormal nerve function. Neuropathy can be due to certain vitamin deficiencies, nerve damage due to trauma, alcohol consumption, radiation, side effects of certain medications, or due to certain medical conditions such as diabetes. Treatment varies depending on the cause of the problem. Have it evaluated and appropriately treated.

SOmetimes: Yes, but it's patient dependent as not all people respond to all modalities. Diabetic neuropathic pain can sometimes be relieved with certain gels and creams, but the underlining disease must be treated as well. Best of luck.
