If you are suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, light touch can trigger your pain so either you must press hard on your skin when applying QR Cream or you can apply QR Cream on some plastic wrap and then place the plastic wrap with the cream side against your skin.
The plastic wrap will protect your skin from being touched and help the mannitol to penetrate under your skin to calm the irritated nerves that are there. Keep the plastic wrap against your skin for at least one hour.
The nerves supplying the lower half of the face are deep, therefore it takes longer for the mannitol in QR Cream to reach them. It will take a long time and many applications, but gradually, your level of pain will be less and it will require more stimulation to get the nerves shooting their pain signals.
QR Cream calms nerves: 6 of Dr. Bertrand’s patients used QR cream for their trigeminal neuralgia. On average, they experienced 48% relief 25 minutes after applying QR Cream and the relief lasted for 3 ½ hours. This is better than the 36% relief people get from narcotics, the 23% from anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Voltaren, and 13% from Tylenol (acetaminophen) (Click here).
With time, they had fewer attacks and the pain from these attacks became gradually less intense, but it took a long time, many months.
Thirty minutes after applying QR cream, the patient with TMJ pain had 47% pain relief which lasted 8 hours. This is certainly better than the 36% relief people get from narcotics, the 23% from anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Voltaren, and 13% from Tylenol (acetaminophen).
