Bengay Eye Swelling Causes and Reviews

Behcet's syndrome is a disease that involves vasculitis, which is inflammation of the blood vessels. It causes problems in many parts of the body. The most common symptoms are

  • Sores in the mouth
  • Sores on the sex organs
  • Other skin sores
  • Swelling of parts of the eye
  • Pain, swelling and stiffness of the joints

More serious problems can include meningitis, blood clots, inflammation of the digestive system and blindness.

Doctors aren't sure what causes Behcet's. It is rare in the United States, but is common in the Middle East and Asia. It mainly affects people in their 20s and 30s. Diagnosing Behcet's can take a long time, because symptoms may come and go, and it may take months or even years to have all of the symptoms. There is no cure. Treatment focuses on reducing pain and preventing serious problems. Most people can control symptoms with treatment.

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="">mysb at</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.

I left a Bengay heating pad on for 8 hours as directed and then removed it after. Then about 5 minutes later my skin started itching and turning red. I broke out with pimples as well. Its been irritating for 3 days now and nothing is working! I've tried extra dry skin care lotion to hydrocortisone cream.

Just a positive comment on the positive pain relieving results of BenGays' PainRelieving patches combined with Ben Gay's Highly effective external pain relieving cream. It definitely soothed the pain of my knee amp; lower lag when I fell, prior to New Years on a sheet of ice.

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.
