We Do Things the Right Way

Qutenza is a prescription medication that contains an active ingredient called capsaicin, derived from chili peppers. It is a powerful and clinically-proven treatment for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, targeting the damaged nerves responsible for causing pain. The treatment involves applying a patch containing a high concentration of capsaicin to the affected area, which desensitizes the nerves and provides lasting relief from pain.
