About 20 years ago I used a cream for arthritic hip joints and lower back that was supposed to be almost a miracle worker

It worked by deadening the nerve endings so pain signals were not sent to the brain.

The active ingredient was capsaicin ................... which is in all peppers.

It worked OK, no problem

UNTIL you sat in a hot bath or went under a hot shower

THEN ................................. watch out!!!!

Burning like you wouldn't believe!!

I think it is still on the market ..........but I haven't used it for many a year :-D

A song by Jerry Lee Lewis comes to mind....... (I edited that, cos I had the wrong name lol)

Poor you Errol!

I have a big box of thin rubber gloves, always use them when handling things that are hot & spicy, or sloppy (like fish cakes).

WHY do we get an itchy nose when handling things like this? Murphy's law?


Olive oil? yikes!!! Try milk.

If you find chillies too hot on your tongue a bit of yogurt is very soothing.

I have not heard of it working elsewhere but it could be worth a try.

My neighbour has a lot of back trouble and her husband often has to apply embrocation to her back at night. He now knows to wash his hands afterwards too!

Sorry for LOL :-D :-D :-D :-D

You should have some latex gloves handy to put on your hooves... :-) :-)

I bet you will never know if any of these remedies work because you are not going to dab a bit of chilli THERE just to find out are you?

One sheep looks much like another to me. But if I see one today covered in yogurt and olive oil wearing latex gloves on hooves, I will give you a wave, Errol :-D :-D

Have you got your raddle on as well Errol?
