Dragon Pain Relief Cream Reviews
Dragon is one of many topical pain relief products on the market, and while brands of higher visibility may steal the spotlight in this department, a cursory glance of the ingredients shows that Dragon can certainly compete with the rest of the field.
Featuring an ample 10% menthol, along with camphor and methyl salicaylate, Dragon should smell and feel similar to other topical pain relief products if you have used any such product in the past. Because of this, Dragon is a solid choice for minor aches and pains.
To apply, you simply rub it on, bandage the area if desired, and feel the product begin to work. The inclusion of camphor as an anti-inflammatory agent is a bonus, and for those who have not been satisfied with menthol-only products, Dragon should definitely be on your short list to try.
We found the smell to be acceptable and on par with competing products. We also have not found Dragon to stain clothing in our tests.
The price and ingredients make Dragon a no-brainer if you are looking for a topical pain relief cream which may also help inflammation. Be sure not to apply this or any other topical pain relief cream to open wounds, and keep in mind that topical pain relief creams will not cure any underlying condition.
There are a wealth of topical pain relief creams to be found online and in local stores. Ben Gay, Icy Hot, and Vicks VaopRub are popular competitors. We have also recently reviewed some up-and-coming brands such as Zim’s Max-Freeze. There are limitless numbers of topical pain relief creams to be found on Amazon, many of them relatively inexpensive and highly rated.
Dragon offers a proven combination of effective ingredients in an inexpensive tube that can readily be found at drugstores everywhere. If you’ve found other topical pain relief creams ineffective, compare the ingredients to Dragon and give this one a try if they differ.
