If the ointment is applied as warmth-producing product for sportsmen, use the applicator to spread 2 to 3 g of ointment on the muscular area and rub it into the skin with massaging movements until the skin is lightly red. After training the ointment should be washed off the skin with cool water.

For pain relief,

use the applicator to spread 1 to 3 g of ointment 2 to 3 times a day on the distressed area, depending of the intensity of the pain, and cover it with a bandage to increase the thermal effect. Approximately 50 to 100 g of ointment is required for a course of treatment.
After every application wash your hand with cool water and soap.

If you feel that the effect of the ointment is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

The ointment can cause severe irritation if it is applied on the skin in excessive quantities. In such case it is recommended to wash the ointment off the skin.
If a child has accidentally swallowed the ointment, refer immediately to the doctor, who will prescribe the treatment needed. Do not try to induce vomiting.

If you forget to use Capsicam

Use it as soon as possible and thereafter continue as usual. If it is already the time for the next application, use the prescribed amount and then continue as usually. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
