We use a product called Deep Blue. It's the only topical I've ever found that actually works. Most of the other stuff stinks which I guess makes you think it's working but Deep Blue will tell you it's working. It will get what feels like it getting hot. I put the stuff on an area that doesn't hurt and it doesn't get hot. So it's convinced me it's working when I need it. Expensive stuff but if it works it's better than the stuff that doesn't and you are still in pain.

I found that incorporating a semi-regular routine (3-4 times/week) of serious stretching and exercise for my core helped immensely. I was putting way too much pressure on my shoulders/arms/wrists when I first started riding. It was so bad I thought I'd have to sell the bike and get something more upright. A couple years later and I'm in much better health and using much better body posture! Wrists no longer hurt, so win/win!

Get a full page from a newspaper. Put one corner in the middle of your hand. Gather up the rest of the paper by pulling it in with your fingers.
Put your hand on the desk in front of you. Push down hard with each finger and thumb, one at a time for 3 seconds, and later 6 seconds. Look up isometric exercises.

Give it a month and ride a lot, your wrist will be back in shape and you'll forget you even had the problem.
Until you get stuck in an hours traffic inching up a hill, ( happened to me 2 weeks ago), by the end of that mess my left hand was killing me.

I don't think those help the wrist so much as the hands which makes clutch and brake work much better though.
They work the forearm as well Larry so by default I would think the wrist as well.
