An effective and safe alternative to medication, there are products for the back, joints, and even for the face to relieve sinus pain. Choose from the wide selection of heat therapy products at Walgreens.com of reusable pads, disposable pads, or a hot and cold rub-on formula.

When traditional pain relief products are not enough

If you are in need of numbing cold, place the pad in the freezer for a few hours. Some heat pads wrap around the body to allow you to wear it under clothing and take your heat therapy with you. Disposable patches begin warming as soon as you open them and maintain their heat for up to eight hours.
