Q
Are there any topical medications for neuropathy?

A

There are topical alternatives for neuropathy.  If you go to your local pharmacy, you may find capsacin, which is made of the active ingredient from hot peppers.  Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after applying this to the tops and bottoms of your feet, because the active ingredient may remain on your fingers and transfer elsewhere.  The most effective topical medication our pratice can recommend is a topical prescription for a compounding pharmacy. Our doctors can make very specific alterations depending on your situation.  So don't delay, make an appointment with one of our doctors today.
