Research Facts
In the early 20th century, Antiphlogistine was one of the old remedies for boils, poison ivy and chest congestion, first used in 1893 and created by Denver Chemical of New York. It was a cream to be heated and applied to intact skin (not irritated or wounded skin), used to soothe muscle, joint and tendon soreness. Counter-irritants (menthol and methyl salicylate) causes skin to feel cool, then warm.
