The main ingredient of chili patches is Capsicain the main component of chili peppers.
The patch can be applied on painful areas due to nerve pain. We will perform this procedure at our medical office and takes about 30- 60 min. The painful area gets labeled and the patch gets cut out.
There will be some burning pain caused by the patches which can be limited with drugs or a nerve block.
It does not function on everyone but if it works the positive effect can stay up to 3 month. The entire therapy is without any side effects and gets covered by your medical health insurance.
