Answer

Analgesics, Topical

Topical analgesics penetrate deep for temporary relief of minor, arthritis-associated aches and pains of muscles and joints.

Capsaicin topical (Capzasin-P, Salonpas-Hot, Zostrix)

Capsaicin is derived from plants of the Solanaceae family. It may render skin and joints insensitive to pain by depleting substance P in peripheral sensory neurons.
