Arnica Gel for Botox headache

  • 2 years ago's been 18 hours and the Arnica Gel seems to be the ONLY thing that works!!! I didn't have any this morning, only the oral Arnica 200, so I took those and my headache felt a little, tiny bit better, but nothing like the relief from the night before. I called my son and had him pick up some Gel on his way home. I put it on my forehead and between my eyes and along my sinuses about 10 minutes ago and already the pain is almost all gone. This is the only product that has worked so far on this excruciating headache!!  In the last 5 days I have tried everything from an entire box of Theraflu, Migraine medicine, Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, Aleve, Peppermint Oil, Magnesium, Arnica 30c, Arnica 200ck, massage, salt baths......and the Arnica Gel is the only product that worked...almost immediately!

Yes, arnica will work, but Dr. Sager's Ouchy!® Boo-Boo Gel works even better - and it eliminates the black and blue at the injection site.

I haven't tried this gel, coz after I got my botox injection at Lewis Pain, I didn't experience any such symptoms.
Good for you! Headaches and black and blues are definitely not good.
Our office prescribes Bruisestick ointment which contains both Arnica and Bromelain after Botox injections.

So it is a prescription?  Or is it something that is available over the counter?
Thanks Megan!! Today has been the best day so far...I didn't wake up with it pounding even though a little bit was there. The Arnica Gel has literally been the saving grace!!
