In Reply to: Capsaicin - How to apply posted by Doc who suffers too on August 13, 2001 at 21:08:27:
I have been applying Zostrix (main ingredient capsaicin) since May 8/01 to the entire CH side of my face. I apply it 3 to 4 times per day. It took approximately 2-1/2 weeks before I noticed a difference. I am a chronic sufferer and now I find my attacks not as intense as prior to using Zostrix. Also, I was having up to 95 attacks per week and they are now down to between 4 and 8. Coincidence? Don't know but the relief is wonderful. By the way, O2 works well for me so between O2 and Zostrix, the quality of my life has definitely improved. I never tried it inside the nose. Hope this helps someone.
