Soothanol is an alternative topical treatment used to help reduce joint pain. While generally considered safe, its ingredients may cause several side effects that should be understood before use.
Soothanol X2 is an alternative treatment designed to soothe joint pain, using ingredients such as olive oil, peppers and dimethyl sulfoxide. It is meant to be used topically.
Because Soothanol contains substances that are acidic, contact with the eyes and mucous membranes can cause adverse reactions. This can result in mild irritation or burning sensations.
Dimethyl sulfoxide, also called DMSO, is an ingredient of Soothanol. This substance can sometimes cause an unpleasant odour similar to garlic if taken in high quantities.
Soothanol is meant to be used externally on the surface of the skin. It can cause adverse effects if swallowed.
Menthol in Soothanol may possibly cause allergic reactions such as a rash or itching at the area of application. Product use should be discontinued if these reactions occur.
