I use hot pepper lotion (capsaicin) on my feet every day. It’s the one thing that helps keep down the inflammation.
One thing I’ve noticed is it’s not such a great idea to mix hot pepper and hot weather. I was out all day yesterday and it was hot. It was a backyard party.
I tried to be cognizant of where my feet were all day long. Whenever the sun got to close, I went for the shade. But, even taking these precautions, the heat still got to my feet.
By 5pm, my feet were burning like a sunburn. The burning sensation will go away eventually. Still, it is rather uncomfortable.
I’d leave off the hot pepper, but then I know my feet would be in worse shape. It’s difficult finding the balance. It’s not all that easy avoiding the sun especially when you’re outside.
