Kapsikam - a local remedy.
The analgesic and warming ointment contains substances that have a vasodilating and irritating effect on sensitive nerve endings, as a result of which it has a local irritating, hyperemic and analgesic effect. Local skin irritation causes changes in the blood supply and selective reduction of the trophism of the internal organs innervated by the same segments of the spinal cord. Additional irritation in the corresponding segment of the spinal cord causes additional activation of the antinociceptive system, which prevents the conduction of pain impulses into the cerebral cortex and improves pain tolerance.
The skin temperature rises by 1 - 2 ° C for 2 - 3 hours. The analgesic effect occurs after 30 - 40 minutes and lasts up to 3 - 6 hours. At repeated use ointment keeps action within 10 - 14 days.
The ointment is quickly absorbed into nearby tissues. Absorption into the systemic circulation is negligible.
