They're all the Latin names of plants and herbs. I don't carry the bottle around with me, so I can't recall exactly, but one has the word Rhizome in it. I'd rather not get into detail about this because we might find the thread re-directed.
> Btw, have you ever tried capsaicin (not capsaicum) cream?

No, never heard of it.

Thanks for the advice, but I'm afraid that I am not inclined to go with something like that. Besides, it might interest you to know that here in Thailand, the chili pepper is worshipped as a gastronomic god by the natives; it is an ingredient in 90+% of the prepared food and I personally can't deal with it in any more than modest amounts. I hate the feeling of having my mouth burning. But I wouldn't be surprised, based on what you say about the chile-based medication and the Thais' love of chili peppers, that this stuff is probably considered to have great health values. I've managed to survive six years here and construct a diet that's about 50% Thai and 50% Western while avoiding the chili pepper whenever possible.
> PS. I take it you've tried the OTC NSAID creams and counter-irritants. Were they any good?

One OTC cream seemed useless; another one, made in Japan called Satogesic Cream (name based on name of company) seems much better; but I think I developed a tolerance to it, if that's possible.
