English translation:rubefacient/counter-irritant
Explanation:
GDT
rubéfiant adj.
Équivalent(s) English rubefacient
Définition :
Se dit d'un agent médicamenteux dont l'application sur la peau provoque une rougeur intense et passagère.


"rubefacient
Agents are also called counter-irritant. The name derives from the fact that these agents cause a reddening of the skin by causing the blood vessels of the skin to dilate, which gives a soothing feeling of warmth. The term counter-irritant refers to the idea that irritation of the sensory nerve endings alters or offsets pain in the underlying muscle or joints that are served by the same nerves. See capsaicin; capsicum oleoresin; choline salicylate; ethyl salicylate; glycol salicylate; methyl salicylate; menthol; salicylic acid; turpentine oil."
