Q: How do you wash off icy hot
A: Remove any excess Icy Hot with a Kleenex. Do not rub it in. Douse a cotton ball in olive oil and use that to cleanse the affected area gently. Then wash it off with water. Pat the skin dry.Washing the area with water alone did not help so I washed with soap and water and that seemed to work. But in the time it has taken me to type this up, the burning has come back full force. AUGH! I've used IcyHot "No Mess" before with great results... but after googling this I found that many people have had this burning when using it behind the knee.
OK back to google... this did NOT work!
UPDATE: If my leg wasn't burning I'd be rolling laughing about this... so, IcyHot is made with Capsaicin - the active ingredient in chili peppers! Remember my story about making chili?! AUGH! I found an article about it on drugs.com for IcyHot PM which I will assume is the same or similar to the "No Mess" version I have... What doesn't make sense is that I've used this product before with no issues, except on my shoulder and not behind my knee. I'm guessing I applied too much. I reapplied olive oil and left it on, the burning seems to be slowly dissipating. It's now 2:30 AM.
