Jalapeno for Muscle Pain

For neck pain and back pain, rub jalapeno along the infected areas. The jalapeno causes the area to warm, similar to using a product like Ben Gay.

I learned about this by accident after cooking with jalapeno. At the same time, I had some pretty bad pain in the neck and upper back. I cut the jalapeno open and smeared the open jalapeno, seeds and all, on my back and neck. It really did help relieve my muscle pain.

You are actually right, and now I must revise my recommendation.

I no longer recommend rubbing jalapeno on your skin. It really burns. I don't even know if it helped me with my muscle aches. When I took a hot shower, it burned even more.

In summary, ignore my advice.
