Aspercreme help shingles pain?

Not best treatment: It could help since it is an analgesic but it might not be the best treatment. If you have active shingles, please visit your doctor, he/she might recommend anti viral medication and anti inflammatory medications. If the pain is persistent after the rash is gone, topical Lidocaine patches along with a nerve pain medication are the best course of treatment. ...Read more

Does aspercreme or neosporin relieve severe sunburn pain on feet?

Better Ideas: Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Cool water soaks can help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil. Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring . Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps. ...Read more
