Meet ‘Topical First’ Doctor: Dr. Bob Arnot

June 10, 2019

Dr. Bob Arnot, an award-winning journalist, author of 12 books on nutrition and health, and previously Chief Medical Correspondent for NBC and CBS News, is featured in the new ‘Topical First’ Salonpas® commercials.

“Hisamitsu America, the manufacturer of the Salonpas products, sent over samples of the Salonpas® Lidocaine Pain Relieving Gel Patch.  I tried the patch after a rigorous paddle-boarding session to address my ‘tennis elbow’ and found that the patch worked really well addressing my pain management issues,” says Dr. Arnot who competes in international athletic events.

“I have known about Salonpas for some time and believe that they make good quality products at prices that most everyone can afford,” adds Dr. Arnot.

“Topical first should be the mantra of doctors,” said Dr. Arnot. “As orally administered nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can cause adverse effects, physicians should consider recommending topical therapies first to reduce systemic exposure and minimize the patient’s risk.”
