I can't find my Iron Man muscle rub anywhere.. very upset (Read 84 times)

    I am pretty upset, I love using this stuff because it stays ice cold for more than an hour and really helps my sore legs. But I have one tube left and have been searching nonstop online for it, but nobody has it anymore and I am beginning to wonder if it is no longer manufactured. If so, can anyone refer me to a rub that does not heat up, that stays cold and for a long time?

        What did I do? *Innocent face* Cry...

        I just can't stand sitting for 15 minutes icing one part at a time, when both knees, or calves or all of my legs need icing. This stuff was amazing.

          I've never tried that sort of stuff myself. I generally prefer warm hands on me. It works much better for me. :-)

            There's a product called Biofreeze that you may want to consider.  I don't use it personally, but I believe it does what you are looking for.

              happylily - I've tried that, lasted less than 5 minutes before DH wanted compensation Wink

              So_Im_A_Runner - that stuff just doesn't have the same effect. Sad

                You could always do an ice bath to get everything.

                  I don't know of any thing that will keep an area ice cold for that long... how often do you need to ice your legs like that?

                   

                  Biofreeze is numbing, but more like a menthol product.  Another option would be Arnicare gel.

                  Amazon sells both, and you can check the reviews.

                   

                  I'm not sure either will work for what you need.

                    Try the Feed and tack store if the drugstore doesn't have it.

                     

                    Or Absorbine veterinary liniment gel

                     

                    works for me...NEEEIIIGGHHHH  No side effects yet that I can tell....

                      Hmmm...... other than neighing, any OTHER possible side effects.................Smile

                      Honestly, I don't know if I really NEED it so much, I think I might be addicted to the feeling of ice cold. It really feels good in the summer when it is 85+ degrees.

                        The absorbine vet liniment is good stuff.  I got it for our horse but after rubbing it on I noticed it smelled just like icey hot and it was quite a bit cheaper when you compared the amount in the container.

                         

                        I can't tell the difference between the two products and the ingredient list is almost word for word.
