Knee cap arthritis

Posted by karencar @karencar, Aug 27, 2019

I have been using Diclofinac (Voltarin) gel for my knees for knee cap arthritis. This summer I broke out in a rash on both knees. Aspercreme does not work. Is there anything else?

@karencar, Well that is a bummer, especially when we work so hard to find something that brings relief. My nemesis is neosporin of all things. I did use the Voltaren gel. I found that the Voltaren 24 hour patches gave more relief. Perhaps there is some other ingredient in the gel that caused your reaction. Maybe, just maybe, that ingredient won’t be in the patch. It may be worth a try. Have a joyful day. Chris

@karencar Have you thought about lidocaine cream 5% or patches? They are Rx only. My pain management doctor has given me an Rx of a compounded cream containing lidocaine, Baclofen, Meloxicam. There are many combinations he can try to help you et relief.
