Well, Icy Hot's main ingredient is methyl salicylate, which contains salicylic acid (which is a very effective againts acne) but is not in its purest form. It may work but I'm not entirely sure. Maybe someone else, like a dermatologist, can give you a precise diagnostic.
This is unlikely to be effective, other than the astringent value of the vehicle itself. Best choices are still benzoyl peroxide preparations.
Arthritis is not curable at this stage. However, there are things that can help such as dietary changes. You might also want to try some herbal remedies or homeopathic remedies for natural pain relief. The major considerations are diet and lifestyle
non phamcological treatment is:
- dietary changes
- heat and cold
- homeopathic remedies
- herbal remedies
pharmacological treatment is:
- non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs
- low dose corticosteroids
- disease modifying anti rheumatic drugs
- immune suppression
There is no quick and simple way to treat arthritis using alternative methods, because it's a complicated problem. To simplify it, there are two things that need to be done.
1) Measures to reduce pain and inflammation. This is probably what you'll read the most about if you do searches online for alternative treatments. This is going to involve anti-inflammatory suppleents like fish oil, curcumin, and quercitin to name some very common one. There are many anti-inflammatory supplements, just listing them all would take some work. These by themself are not the cure for arthritis, but it makes sense to include them.
Also, if you can take a natural anti-inflammatory instead of aspirin or a NSAID, then stay away from the drugs.
2) In addition to just taking an anti-inflammatory you want to to do some work investigating the cause of arthritis.
Unfortunately this takes some work.
Major considerations are diet and lifestyle. Toxicty (some people have huge improvements after going through detoxification programs), and any kind of stress on the body. Also gastro-intestinal issues are a big link. What happens is people have something called "leaky gut" where large food particles and microbes that are not supposed to pass through the gut lining do. This causes inflammation through the entire body, and effects some people in the joints. So often people with arthritis need to start taking supplements and working to improve health in other areas and not just do things for the joint.
The joints in where you feel the symptom of a problem, but the cause runs much deeper.
A highly recommend book is "Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Arthritis," which can be bought pretty cheaply off Amazon, or BarnesandNoble.
Alternatively try to borrow it from your local library. If they do not have it they may get it in for you.

Try mixing a bit of salt with very warm water and slosh it around the part of your mouth in the spot were it is twice a day. This doesn't get rid of it right away, but it helps a little. Mostly, just be patient and try to bear the pain. Avoid fried or sugary foods.
Canker sores usually last for a week to 10 days. They are annoying and generally go away on their own. They can be caused by stress, or even certain foods, such as citrus fruits.
If a sore is unusually painfull or large, a dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment, or a prescription or nonprescription solution to reduce the pain and irritation.
