Reumex contains Methyl Salicylate, a topical anagelsic and anti-inflammatory agent for the relief of pain associated with musculoskeletal discomfort.

Capsicum is a counter-irritant used also as a topical analgesic in painful conditions. Topical application of capsicum produces a counter-irritant effect, attributed to its ability to deplete the neuropeptide substance P (pain causing subatance ) from local sensory c-type nerve fibrosis and is therefore useful in a range of painful conditions.

Menthol results in dilatation of blood vessels in the affected area causing a soothing effect followed by analgesic action.


Reumex lotion is indicated in the relief of pain associated with arthritis; muscle, joint and soft tissue pains and muscular stiffness. It also relieves itching in pruritus and urticaria.
