Desensitize aggravated nerves
My husband has lower back muscle pain. He usually uses OTC pain relievers and muscle rubs, but hates the smell of the rubs, and how greasy they leave his skin feeling. Then it gets on his clothes and he's not happy about that either. These Salonpas lidocaine patches make it easy for him to get relief with no mess, and he can keep going without having to stop or slow down. He can use these patches at home, when he's working, or when we are traveling. The lidocaine patches are a nice large size to cover a decent area of pain, and these stay put for the most part. They do tend to fall off if he tries to wear them to bed at night. He gets a decent amount of relief for his muscle pain and stiffness so he can keep going and do what needs to be done. He is pretty happy with these patches!
