I heard Paw Paw could be used for pain relief: I have spinal stenosis and get severe, deep pain in my legs and tight muscles. Would it relieve these symptoms?

Menothere
Menothere  

The answer is NOOOOOO. Paw-Paw works with itchiness, skin problems and burns because of its emollient and soothing qualities. The pain you describe needs of a muscular relaxants and/or painkillers. The only thing I can think of is Turmeric, which is a natural antiflammatory, and Magnesium which also reduces muscular spams and tightness if taken on a regular basis. You can get those in any Supplements store and consult your pharmacist. Physiotherapy and remedial massage on a regular basis would help you lots with your tight muscles. Still, If you have been diagnosed, your doctor will certainly advise you the best medication to take and possible alternatives,

Can't say I've ever used paw paw for pain relief. For regular muscle pain or bruises I use Goanna Oil or Arnica Cream. But nothing beats the opinion of a GP or other health professional when it comes to your health :)

Thanks very much for replies! I take 3 prescription antiinflammatories (Naproxen, Tramadol and Gabapentin) and Oxycontin, two-three times per day. Am trying Pregabalin but doesn't seem to be effective. Also trying prescription Diclofenac 10% plo gel compound. Am also trying natural, Tumeric, and Milk Thistle; concerned about toxicity. Sorry, this is not really relative to Paw Paw...any nerve and muscle pain relief suggestions appreciated.

Have you ever thought to use one of those back support wraps

brian

I am pretty sure Lucas Paw paw cream was designed to use on the skin

brian

This situation you have described seems like it might be coming from your back or spinal area.and if this is the case I suggest you go to your doctor and get a medical reconsiance image scan or a c.t scan performed / my suggestion is that you try the ct scan on your back and legs as it is a much quieter and quicker procedure and it is usually covered by Medicare Australia

Essential magnesium will work. Google it so you can buy online. You may have found something that works by now. See my review on this product

Can i use paw paw creme on burns?

Sun burn on face?

Laura
Laura  

Hi Eve, as long as the burn is not bad enough that you need to see a doctor, I would highly recommend it for relief of the pain and itch of a burn, yes including sunburn. But Aloe Vera gel is also very good for sunburn, even better if you have an actual Aloe plant and can use the sap from the leaves.

JOhnY

Hi Eve, I haven't used paw paw cream on burns, but for mild burns after the recommended treatment with running water, l wouldn't hesitate to use it to relieve pain and redness and protect against infection. See a doctor for anything other than mild burns

Is Lucas papaw ointment good for minor burns?

Menothere
Menothere  

Yes, I have used this for small burns and it soothes the pain and makes the burns to heal quicker. I have used this for burns in my fingers when I got some burns while cooking. Also for cuts or for healing sores. If the burnt is considerable you need a specific ointment or cream from the pharmacist, though.

Is it suitable for treating nail fungus?

Honestly though
Honestly though  

No it doesn't, I've tried.. It doesn't say so on the ointment either.

TD
TD  

No, this product is purely a barrier cream. You need an anti-fungal product.

brian
brian  

No / there are old school fungus treatment then they have moved on @ try lorosyl or more likely the better option is to see your doctor

brian
brian  

If the problem does not get better you could possibly get the doctor to cut the nail out get rid of the fungus and the system will grow a new nail / only do this if you have explored other options first

Have an allergic reaction, will pawpaw ointment help this?

Georgia McCarthy
Georgia McCarthy  

Hi Susan, It may help with the itching or sores but if it's a serious reaction you may need to go to the doctor.

TD
TD  

If you are having an allergic reaction an anti-histamine might be a better option. PawPaw ointment may seemingly ease the dryness of the skin, but not heal. Vitamin E oil should work better. It does also depend on what is causing the allergy.

brian
brian  

You don't explain the allergic reaction properly / is it a problem inside or outside on the.skin

brian
brian  

You can try putting on cotton gloves if you like that might help / you can also see the doctor for more options

Is Lucas Paw Paw ointment supposed to burn after applying it to certain areas on my face?

Dina

My baby has Insect Bites in his eyes. may i spread papaw in his eyes?thanks..

MissBeeHaven
MissBeeHaven  

Are you suggesting real fruit Papaw? real fruit won't hurt his tender skin. If you intend to do the natural way, cucumber or raw tomato will take the heat & itch away. If the bites are itchy, and in an accessible place (I wouldn't do it on his eyes) I have heard that AGAROL works! I have used this on an itchy bite, it eased the pain & redness, works very well. Wish you well, ruby

TD
TD  

No, it's just a petroleum based topical barrier product, you don't want this in anyone's eyes.

brian
brian  

No / don't be silly @ go see your local doctor and he or she will probably refer you to an eye specialist / never ever put anything in the eyes without a doctors approval unless it's simple eye drops

Can we use paw paw ointment onto baby face, as red rashes looks like eczma?

Brooke Talia Waters
Brooke Talia Waters  

use moogoo for eczma like rashes, I work at a chemist by the say :P Its highly recommended

TD
TD  

You can definitly use it on the face (adults and babies) But it won't heal the eczema, as it is a petroleum based topical barrier product. This is great for applying over eczema creams to lock in the treatments.

brian
brian  

Howdy - my advice is to buy Macarthur paw paw products or you can try invite vitamin cream for the face @ it's expensive at almost 20 dollars though it's worth it though the trick is to keep using it that's the only problem with vitamin e cream is that someone has to keep using the invite vitamin e cream it isn't a permanent fix for the dermatitis problem

brian
brian  

You could try to see the doctor or see one of those Chinese herbalists

brian

It wouldn't hurt to try Lucas paw paw cream

Does this cream help rosacea thank you.

Aless6
Aless6  

I have used it experimentally on my rosacea instead of the prescription cream which really dries the skin out. It seemed to help, but that was not a scientific trial, so I can't say it did definitely help. It's worth trying though- it didn't make it worse.

is it postion if you don't wash it off before eating.

Dose Lucas pawpaw ointment treat bruising???

A.L92
A.L92  

Don't think so... A bruise is dead blood cells...

TD
TD  

No, it's just a petroleum based topical barrier product

brian
brian  

It's better to see a doctor as bruising is caused by the blood capillaries / the best thing to do is quickly put ice on it and go to the medical centre as soon as you can or go to the nearest hospital

How can I use this?

A.L92
A.L92  

Lots of things, chafe rash, cute and sores, dry and cracked skin (nipples, heels, hands) insect bites, nappy rash, scrapes, stretch marks (helps with the itching)... and more! You can use it on babies through to the elderly.

brian
brian  

You could try using your fingers to apply the Lucas paw paw cream or use cotton balls or a disposable plastic spoons

brian

Though if you are using your fingers or hand always make sure they are clean and dry

Could it be used for acne on face?

Papaw

Yes, it is great, but always wash off in the morning as it doesn't have any sun screen in it.

Brooke Talia Waters

It will leave your skins feeling really sticky though :/

Can you use paw paw on ulcers or cuts in your mouth?

CremeEggs
CremeEggs  

I did when I was younger, but I'm not sure of the effect it had on them. Feel free to try it though.

Georgia McCarthy
Georgia McCarthy  

Lucas wont harm you if you use it in your mouth as it is not poisonous but because your mouth is full of saliva the papaw wont stick in your mouth.

brian
brian  

No don't be silly / never put skin cream in your mouth / the best 3 options for you are / 1 go to your doctor and get the doctor to prescribe a liquid @ option 2) use makuna honey from new Zealand though make sure it's 10 plus rated / option 3) which I found the best @ eat plenty of yoghurt containing beneficial bacteria such as cater bificidus lactai

Can it be used for bee sting on the face?

CremeEggs
CremeEggs  

I'm not sure on the effectiveness as I've not used it myself for a bee sting, however feel free to try it. I don't see it doing any harm.

no1shedevil
no1shedevil  

I have used it on mozzie bites and ant bites. i would give it a try on the bee sting, it my e effective

brian
brian  

Make sure you remove the bee sting needle then after that there would be probably no real harm in trying to use it to treat a bee sting reaction

Is Lucas paw paw ointment good for venous leg ulcers that don't want to heal?

M0808
M0808  

I can't give you a definite "yes" on that, because I don't have any experience with leg ulcers. But I can tell you that it wouldn't make it any worse. Like I said in my review, I haven't found anything yet that it doesn't work on, so I would give it a try. (Plus, it's pretty inexpensive.)

brian
brian  

You could try manuka honey from new Zealand to see if helps those legs ulcers though make sure it's rated 10 plus though I can't remember where to buy it from though you can try Woolworths or you could try Macarthur paw paw complete care product cream to see if it works

Is it ok to eat paw paw ointment as I've heard it's good for ulcers?

Natalie47
Natalie47  

Definitely not ! It is not a natural product. It is made mostly from petroleum jelly which is a petro-chemical (made from a petrol by product )

Chontel Landman
Chontel Landman  

I wouldn't eat it but obviously it's used for chapped lips so it doesn't matter if you accidentally swallow some. For ulcers try Vegemite and a warm salt water rinse.

Sue37
Sue37  

I wouldn't think it's ok to eat the ointment as it is for topical use only. If you have mouth ulcers your best to try the 3m mouth ulcer ointment and make changes to your diet as you may be run down. If a mouth ulcer is still there after a week or two see your local doctor as it could be something more serious Aldo regards to eating pawpaw your best eating the fruit

brian
brian  

Nope / my advice is to eat makuna honey from new Zealand or eat yoghurt with beneficial yoghurt @ please note: yoghurt will not heal a mouth ulcer though I found out if you eat a cup of yoghurt ever few hours the mouth ulcer will be a thing of the past as mouth ulcers are usually caused by eating too much dry things such as.too much bread and or cheese / peptic ulcers though a more serious matter @ the best option for peptic ulcers is too see a doctor so that the doctor can send to a gastrointestinal specialist which might suggest putting a camera in the mouth to see in the stomache

brian
brian  

Yeah I also agree with other answer you can also try gargling warm water and salt then see if that works
