Pain Cream

Has anyone tried Arthritis Wonder cream? I'm trying to find new things to try. It's got wogonin in it. I'm not real sure what that is. My knees are so bad. Anyone else have any suggestions for inflammation/pain relief? I've tried a lot of different things. I'm ready to branch out again!
