Bengay Chemical Injury Causes and Reviews
Inhalation injuries are acute injuries to your respiratory system and lungs. They can happen if you breathe in toxic substances, such as smoke (from fires), chemicals, particle pollution, and gases. Inhalation injuries can also be caused by extreme heat; these are a type of thermal injuries. Over half of deaths from fires are due to inhalation injuries.
Symptoms of inhalation injuries can depend on what you breathed in. But they often include
- Coughing and phlegm
- A scratchy throat
- Irritated sinuses
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain or tightness
- Stinging eyes
- A runny nose
If you have a chronic heart or lung problem, an inhalation injury can make it worse.
To make a diagnosis, your health care provider may use a scope to look at your airways and check for damage. Other possible tests include imaging tests of the lungs, blood tests, and lung function tests.
If you have an inhalation injury, your health care provider will make sure that your airway is not blocked. Treatment is with oxygen therapy, and in some cases, medicines. Some patients need to use a ventilator to breathe. Most people get better, but some people have permanent lung or breathing problems. Smokers and people who had a severe injury are at a greater risk of having permanent problems.
You can take steps to try to prevent inhalation injuries:
- At home, practice fire safety, which includes preventing fires and having a plan in case there is a fire
- If there is smoke from a wildfire nearby or lots of particulate pollution in the air, try to limit your time outdoors. Keep your indoor air as clean as possible, by keeping windows closed and using an air filter. If you have asthma, another lung disease, or heart disease, follow your health care provider's advice about your medicines and respiratory management plan.
- If you are working with chemicals or gases, handle them safely and use protective equipment

|I have used BenGay for many years now and since January and a car accident I have used it daily (allot) on my rotator cuff tear and back and knee. I started experiencing severe headaches and awful dizziness and stomach distress where I landed up in the hospital. I finally said that I felt like I was being poisoned by something and my dermatologist suggested that BenGay overuse might be the problem. I stopped it two days ago and the headaches and dizziness persist along with chest tightness. I feel awful and use minimal drugs--no narcotics, etc. If this is BenGay and absorption others need to be aware of its potential side effects. Please contact me at (313)336-3005 or email me at <a href="mailto:mysb.net">mysb at comcast.net</a>. Thanks|

|Mile 15 of my 12 th marathon. Slight back ache so thought I would take some Ben Gay the volunteers were offering. I took a rather large wad and wiped my hands on my back. BIG HUGE MISTAKE--- my BACK AND SPINE WAS ON FIRE that I even picked up a wet sock on the ground to try and wipe it off while running. I am a pretty fast marathoner for my age (41) and was on for a 3:12 marathon and then this burning pain was just too much. The intense burning lasted about 2.5 miles then it was more prickly heat. Instead of helping me it ruined me mentally in a critical point of a marathon I have run the last 4 years. Was this an allergic reation? possibly or that my pores were wide open and accentuated the burning menthol.|

|My son had a sore neck. I applied Bengay to massahe him. He started to feel an intense burn right away. The skin turned red like he had a bad sun erythema. I stopped immediately, washed the skin and put ice on his neck to ease the burning pain. I didn't know somebody can be allergic to such a cream. There is no allergy warnings on it when it should be.|
