A gout attack can last from three to 10 days and can limit a patient’s mobility, ability to work, and quality of life. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments available to help ease the pain of this condition. Corticoid steroids are often prescribed, as are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). More recently, gout attacks are being treated with a pain cream made by OK Compounding.
There are many benefits to treating this disease with a cream pain reliever as opposed to an oral or injected painkiller. Both corticoid steroids and NSAIDs have well-documented side effects, including gastrointestinal pain, bleeding, and cardiac episodes. The customized pain-relief creams made by Christopher Parks and Dr. Gary Lee of OK Compounding can deliver a higher dose right to the problem area without the negative side effects. Ask your doctor for this cream to bring relief to your gout pain.
