Brief Summary: The main objective of this protocol is to determine the effectiveness of using compounded topical pain creams for treating neuropathic, nociceptive, or mixed-pain syndromes. Since these compounded pain creams may be associated with burning or irritation at the application site, and possible systemic effects may present, the secondary objective is to determine the relative satisfaction with the creams. The investigators hypothesis is that the active pain creams may provide significant benefit compared to placebo cream.Conditions
3.1 Specific Aims
Specific Aim 1 will determine pain relief following treatment with the appropriate (based on specified pain) compounded topical pain cream or a placebo cream. The investigators hypothesis is that the compounded topical pain creams will provide greater pain relief than placebo creams.
Specific Aim 2 will measure the patient satisfaction with the cream (compound or placebo). The investigators hypothesis is that the compounded topical pain creams will improve patient satisfaction, while the placebo cream will not result in a change in patient satisfaction with their pain treatment.
