Answer

Medical management includes neuromodulator medications for chronic neuropathic pain management such as anticonvulsant medications (gabapentin or pregabalin) and selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (such as duloxetine). Anecdotal experience indicates that topical counter-irritant medications such as menthol and wintergreen are also valuable as comfort measures.
