A new, cost-effective solution for pain management awaits aching sufferers with the launch of the maximum strength, unscented Salonpas Lidocaine 4% Pain Relieving Gel-Patch.
"Hisamitsu, the manufacturer of the Salonpas products, sent over samples of the new Salonpas Lidocaine 4% Pain Relieving Gel Patch that is now available in retail outlets," said Dr. Bob Arnot, award-winning broadcast journalist and author. "I tried the patch after a rigorous paddle-boarding session to address my "tennis elbow" and found that the patch worked as effectively as a much stronger prescription patch."
