Re: Gout

Just had a delve in the ‘medicine drawer’. We have white Tiger Balm but it appears to be about 20 years old. Should work better, according to wife. Matured. Will certainly stock up on both red and...

Re: Gout

Interesting. Maybe I need to get some tiger balm to bring back with me next month. The doctor gave me some colchesine 10 days ago and I took that together with voltaren. Happy to say it’s gone away...

Re: Gout
