PainBloc24® Pain Pen FAQs

PainBloc24® Pain Pen – Innovative, targeted relief

Answering the call for effective, long-lasting pain relief

What is PainBloc24®?

PainBloc24® is a topical pain reliever made with the highest concentration of pharmaceutical-grade capsaicin allowed by the FDA without a prescription. Its patented NeuroMax® formula is made of several safe, non-active ingredients that support the tolerability and effectiveness of the capsaicin.

What is the active ingredient in PainBloc24® Pain Pen?

What are the inactive ingredients for PainBloc24® Pain Pen?

Alcohol, Diethylene Glycol Monoethyl Ether, Hyaluronate Sodium, Polysorbate 80, Pramoxine HCl, Propylene Glycol, Water

What are the benefits of use?

Capsaicin works by deactivating certain nerve fibers that transmit pain signals to the brain, and PainBloc24®’s NeuroMax® technology is designed to help the medicine more effectively penetrate the skin. PainBloc24® reaches its full effect in helping to relieve your arthritis or muscular pain after several days of use.

Are there potential side effects of use?

If you feel a mild to moderate burning sensation, it is usually a sign that the capsaicin is starting to deactivate certain nerve fibers that carry sensations of heat and pain. This may be accompanied by mild redness. These side effects usually diminish with continued daily use and are not reasons to discontinue use. More severe discomfort may be experienced by some individuals. If severe burning, stinging, itching, or irritation occurs or redness persists, spreads, or becomes tender, discontinue use and contact a doctor.

What can I use PainBloc24® Pain Pen for?

PainBloc24® Pain Pen is ideal for use on small joints. It can be used for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with:

  • arthritis
  • simple backache
  • muscle strains
  • bruises
  • sprains

How do I use Painbloc24® Pain Pen?

  • To activate the pen, hold the Pain Pen at a 90-degree angle and press the tip repeatedly onto the affected area until liquid flows, then dab sparingly. A little goes a long way, so apply a single layer using a single stroke until the area is covered. Use one to two times per day.
  • To avoid irritating sensitive areas, it’s important to wash hands with soap and cold water after each application.
  • If applying PainBloc24® to hands, wait 30 minutes, then wash it off with soap and cold water.
  • Wash application site 30-60 minutes after applying to reduce the risk of transferring the medicine to sensitive areas.
