A swollen foot or a toe injury due to unfortunate circumstances is a common phenomenon. The most common accidents such as hitting the toe against the bed post, shoe bites, blood coagulations under the nail, and cracked and bleeding heels can turn nightmare.
The pain can range from mild to severe, and it may last a short time or be an ongoing issue. Many measures can help relieve your foot pain.

Hot Pepper Cream for Arthritis & Joint Pain is the solution. The active component in hot peppers that gives them their heat is called capsaicin, and the hotter the pepper, the higher the level of capsaicin there is. While rubbing something that seems flaming hot onto your sore joints doesn’t initially seem like it would help arthritis, capsaicin cream is commonly sold OTC as a pain reliever. Instead of paying for the arthritis cream at the store, try making your own. It offers great peace of mind to know what exactly you are absorbing into your skin, and it’s rewarding to make yourself.
Note: It is normal for there to be somewhat of a burning sensation when first applied. If you have sensitive skin, use with caution. Always wear gloves when handling hot pepper powder, and avoid any contact with your eyes. If you wanted to look extra good looking when you make this, a pair of goggles isn’t a bad idea.
Original Capsaicin Cream Recipe
You will need…
-3 tablespoons of cayenne powder
-1 cup of grapeseed oil (or any other oil like almond, jojoba)
-1/2 cup of grated beeswax
-A glass jar with a tightly fitting lid
-A double boiler
Mix together 3 tablespoons of cayenne powder with 1 cup of your oil of choice and heat in a double boiler for 5-10 minutes over medium heat. Stir in a 1/2 cup of grated beeswax and continue to stir until it has melted completely and everything is blended together. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then whisk together. Chill for another 10-15 and then whip again before putting it in a glass jar with a tightly fitting lid and storing in the refrigerator. It will keep for 1 ½ weeks-apply daily as needed for pain. Instead of refrigerator if you use Mud Pot to store the cream it will be great. I am looking at the present practical difficulty and hence suggesting to keep this in Refrigerator. Else I am the first person to say don’t use Refrigerators at all.
When you use your cream, really take the time to gently massage it into each aching joint. The little bit of stimulation helps get your circulation pumping and circulates blood through your joints. This gets much needed oxygen and nutrients to them, which is especially good for osteoarthritis. Don’t forget to wear gloves when handling super spicy stuff.
