Hi shermie,

Here are several sites that sell capsaicin
cremes/ointments/lotions/sprays. You can also get many of these at a
local drugstore or superstore.

The Arthritis Society is not opposed to these crèmes and ointments
?For some people, rubbing one of these salves on an arthritic joint is
as effective as the pain relief they experience from non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and, beyond a brief burning
sensation, there are none of the side effects that often accompany
NSAID use, such as gastric upset or bleeding and rashes. Capsaicin can
even be used as an adjunct to ongoing NSAID treatment.?

This Bandolier study concurs that capsaicin crème can be effective

PS. As a person who makes many typographical mistakes, I feel I can
remind you of this: You must spell the word "capsaicin" as I have
here, in order to find it on  Google or other search engines. I
noticed you typed in in the question as "capascain", which may have
been why you found little to nothing. I typed it into Google as you
typed it, and came up with one lonely site, that did not sell cremes
or lotions! Typing it in as "capsaicin" brought up over 64,000 sites!
I make these kinds of typos all the time myself!

"Capsaicin" is the particular compound which accounts for the fiery
properties in all chilies.
"The homeopathic remedy Capsicum is made from the chilli pepper, which
is still known in homeopathy by the name C. annuum. Medicinally,
chillies are a powerful stimulant for the whole body, increasing blood
flow and promoting perspiration. In the past they were used to treat
Complaints helped by this remedy are characterized by stinging pain in
the bladder, thighs, back, ears, neck, and, when coughing, the chest.
The pain resembles the burning sensation caused by eating or touching
hot peppers. Capsicum is given for mouth ulcers, diarrhea,
hemorrhoids, heartburn, rheumatism, and sore throats. People, who need
Capsicum crave stimulants such as coffee, although these aggravate the
burning pain."
