Topical capcaicin cream
Is topical Capcaicin safe for use on the arthritic hands of a person with severe MG?
Or is there some ingredient in the Capcaicin which people with Myasthenia should avoid taking?
Thank you for your help.
I do not see why you could not use this topical cream with MG. If you have questions or concerns about medications you are taking, you should consult the physician treating your MG.
