Can osteoarthritis be cured with medications for external use, such as ointments?

Not at all, although you can see on TV particles of "an innovative drug" penetrate through the skin directly into the affected area and healing the damaged tissues. No doubt, a cream or ointment particles can penetrate the skin. However they would never be able to penetrate the joint: the articular bag would not allow such a penetration. It is tight enough to prevent anything from penetrating into it through the skin. A cream, at best, can only provide a local anesthetic effect. The well-known method of applying compresses with Dimexide solutions on the sore joint is also capable to achieve only a temporary symptomatic result.
