AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Mint creams.
Mint cream is used temporarily to relieve minor aches, muscles and joint pains due to a simple backache, arthritis, strains, sprains, and bruises. Mint compound contains menthol, eucalyptus oil, and methyl salicylate and it is available with or without turpentine oil.
Menthol and methyl salicylate are known as counterirritants. They work by causing the skin to feel cool and then warm. These feelings on the skin distract you from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles, joints, and tendons.
Eucalyptus oil is a natural base in the cream which works as a pain reliever and also lessens the swelling in joint aches. It also works as a natural insect repellent.
Turpentine oil is made from the resin of certain pine trees which is used in another formulation as an inactive ingredient; it majorly used as a flavoring agent.
As with all pharmaceuticals, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of mint compound creams. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include redness, warmth, stinging, or burning. Rare but serious side effects might be blistering, swelling, severe redness at the application site, increased or unusual pain at the application site.
Seek medical attention if any adverse effects occur.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor.
If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom, then please call your doctor immediately.
