<Hi Robert,

I’m intrigued to know which pain relieving patches you are using for your gout pain. Also, what is the active ingredient(s) that help you recover from a gout attack.strong>

Hey all. Been on vacation but still following up with you all. Anyway, if it’s like most pain relieving patches, it’s more than likely a topical Lidocaine patch. Lidocaine has some really good analgesic qualities and is good for short term pain management, especially for those who don’t like opiate based, oral pain medication.

But as you state, it’s not doing anything for the root cause of the issue itself. Robert, eventually those short term pain patches will not be sufficient.
