In brief: Strength?

Clean the skin where you are applying it.
Check what strength the icy hot ointment, cream or patch has (this is the % or strengh). Try it on in a small surface first to check for the effect. If it does not help try stronger %. Read the manufacturer recommendations. If it burns too much...Wipe it out.
