These are some of the ailments that bird pepper’s ingredient (Capsicum annuum var) lends relief to. Found on the Web MD website:

“Pain from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis, psoriasis, shingles and nerve pain due to diabetes (diabetic neuropathy), when applied to the skin in the affected area. The active ingredient in topical preparations of capsicum,capsaicin, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for these uses”
