    Pros: It works for me to break and to ward off the most brutal pain.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: Does this product burn like all the negative reviewers claim? Yes! Does it feel like a terrible sunburn when applied? Absolutley. Should it be OTC? Thank goodness it is! Should it be used for treatment of mild pain? Probably not. I suffer from what has ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Rapid and severe increase in burning of skin. Should be prescription only.

    Summary: I have no doubt this might help those in desperate need of relief, but to find this seemingly innocuous tube next to the Aspercreme at Wal Mart for anyone to buy, is a very big mistake. I've never reviewed anything before, but after my experience ... read more

    Cons: Pain worse than the pain you purchased this to help with, excruciating fiery pain.

    Summary: After suffering from severe lower back pain for nearly 5 weeks I decided to give this stuff a try. BIG MISTAKE. I applied a small amount (dime sized) to my lower back and it burned on contact... As the night wore on the burning got progressively worse ... read more

    Pros: Extraordinary topical analgesic for the relief of stiff/sore joints due to arthritis.
    Cons: There is a "very mild" warming sensation.  Apply using disposible gloves.

    Summary: I have tried every product available for my athritis pain.  Nothing on the market works as well as Capzasin HP.  I love, love, love this topical cream.  I have not experienced the "burning" sensation that other reviewers have ... read more

    Cons: Unless you have some REAL PAIN, don't bother using and then writing negative opinions...

    Cons: It is hard to measure out a microdot.

    Pros: Not worth the price
    Cons: The burn makes you forget the arthritis pain
