cheno unction - Dairy ointment for back pain.

    A Question for people that might have knowledge of the above.

    I am home carer for my mother who is in her late 80's and has terrible back pain.  She gets some relief when the dairy ointment cheno unction is applied to her back. At the moment it is being applied twice a day.

    Anyone have any positive or negative stories of using such ointment or are you aware of any long term side effects.

    She is going the medical route for back pain but with limited success.

    Some people use Uddermint also know as Miracle Cream for muscular pain.

    From memory I think cheno unction was used for chapped teats, the udder mint might give better results. However your GP is more likely the best option.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

    This is the one we use a bit cheaper than the udder mint

    OP, you will have to judge that for yourself. The contemperaineous use of many commonly available and used items with medicines can be tricky enough when you look into it.

    No one here is qualified to say what you're doing is completely safe and will have no effect on other medicines she may be taking.

    Consequently, it is necessary to close this thread.
