Bengay Open Wound Causes and Reviews


Tetanus is a serious illness caused by Clostridium bacteria. The bacteria live in soil, saliva, dust, and manure. The bacteria can enter the body through a deep cut, like those you might get from stepping on a nail, or through a burn.

The infection causes painful tightening of the muscles, usually all over the body. It can lead to "locking" of the jaw. This makes it impossible to open your mouth or swallow. Tetanus is a medical emergency. You need to get treatment in a hospital.

A vaccine can prevent tetanus. It is given as a part of routine childhood immunization. Adults should get a tetanus shot, or booster, every 10 years. If you get a bad cut or burn, see your doctor - you may need a booster. Immediate and proper wound care can prevent tetanus infection.

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.

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.
