PainElim® cream contains capsicum extract, which owes its medicinal value to the chemical capsaicin found in the fruit. For centuries herbalists rubbed capsicum into the skin to treat muscle and joint pain, added it to socks to treat cold feet and dusted children's hands with it to stop thumb-sucking and nail-biting.
