Doctor’s advice

How do I use Penetrex?

The cream can take a few days to have it's full effect which is why it is recommended to use consistently for a few days before reducing the dose to an as needed basis. Apply the pain cream over the entire area of discomfort 3-4 times per day for the first 7-10 days and after that as needed. When applying, ensure the cream is massaged into the skin until it is completely absorbed.

What do the active ingredients do?

A breakdown of the active ingredients and their uses within Pentrex:
