I like Sore-No-More and, for what you want it for, it should work just fine.
I don't like the liquid for serious leg injuries but their clay poultice is excellent for something like that.
Sore-No-More is all natural; you could try a bottle and see how it works - at least you won't have to scrub the skin off your hands to get the Absorbine smell off them
I will say that I read on another forum of a person that wouldn't use it on her horse because SHE was allergic to Arnica.
Arnica is the principle property in Sore-No-More. If you do use it, either use rubber gloves or do a patch test on yourself to make sure you don't have a reaction
