    F A Q

    Heat Therapy

    I have heard that cold therapy is also a good way to relieve pain.

    When is cold therapy the right treatment and when heat therapy?

    The therapeutic use of cold or warmth is a well-known physiotherapeutic treatment. Whether to use heat or cold on the affected area depends on the type of pain. Heat has been known for generations to be an effective way to relieve pain caused by muscle strain and tension, and in many cases applying external heat sources can relieve muscle pain. Cold is recommended for acute conditions, such as acute inflammation or injuries, e.g. sports injuries such as sprains, contusions, bruising, and swelling. If you are in doubt as to whether to apply heat or cold, please consult your pharmacist or physician.

    When should I use Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster and when Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pads?

    Both products can be used for the relief of musculoskeletal pain. They differ in their mode of action. Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster induces the feeling of warmth by means of a pharmacological ingredient and inhibits the pain-transmitting Substance P whereas Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pads are an external source of physical heat.

    Elastoplast Therapeutic Heat Pads provide long-lasting deeply penetrating physical heat. They therefore can also be used by persons who react with unpleasant skin sensations when using capsaicin creams, ointments or pads.

    Capsaicin Heat Plaster

    Which disease can be treated with the Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster?

    Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster can be used for the relief of muscle pain, e.g. muscle strain and tension as well as for low back pain. These indications are approved and covered by clinical studies.

    Can I use the Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plasters on broken or damaged skin?

    The Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plasters should not be applied on broken or damaged skin.

    Can I use the Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plasters with oral pain relievers?

    Based on long-term marketing experience and published literature no evidence has been provided that there are cases of interaction with prescription or OTC oral pain relievers.

    Can I use the Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster with medicated rubs/creams/ointments?

    The plaster is not intended to be applied at the same time as other products, e.g. other medicated topical products on the same application site.

    Can I reuse the Elastoplast Capsaicin Heat Plaster?

    Once the Plaster is applied to the skin it cannot be reused.
