Rachel Lohr - but there wasn't any noticeable pain for a good hour at least
I put it on for over an hour before I was getting tattooed. I put the plastic wrap on it and after 1.5 hrs, we took it off, wiped it off, and got to work. It absorbed more in some places than in some, but there wasn't any noticeable pain for a good hour at least. Definitely helped me out!
Leon K. Mire - If you're desperate enough to spend this much money, go to the clinic
I got a bad case of poison ivy which started on my forearms and spread to my face and genitals. I got this from Wal-Mart not aware of the exorbitant price because it explicitly stated it was safe for near the eye and genitals. I used it on my forearms first, and while it did stop the itching from the poison ivy, it gave me a series of small abrasive cuts all over my skin. I did not want those on my face or genitals, so I wound up getting prednisone from the clinic.
