Possibly. The creme has a transdermal componant that causes it to penetrate the skin. The concentration of the over-the counter brand is low, however. If the problem interferes with your work, a short-term dose of prednisone orally would probably do the trick. Ask your physician.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Itchy joints are usually seen in inflammatory arthritis like rheumatoid, and that associated with Crohn's or with lupus. Hence, though a steroid cream may bring some relief. Finding the cause and treating it will bring long term relief. Consult a rheumatologist for this. Take care!
