Patient suffering from PDN discusses his experience after application of 10% phenytoin cream
We have presented many patients in our recent papers, but it is always good to hear the story from the patient’s mouth. Here we hear the story of a 56-year old man, suffering from diabetes type II in the last 10 years, and burning pain in both feet. His pain score on the NRS is 6-7, and pain is disturbing, especially when resting in bed. It is prickling as well as burning pain. After the application of phenytoin 10% cream, pain vanishes completely within 30 minutes. He needs to apply the cream only once a day, and only in case of much walking he needs to re-apply the cream after 10-12 hours. In the following video the single-blind response test is explained.
