Bengay Thermal Burn Causes and Reviews


A burn is damage to your body's tissues caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight, or radiation. Scalds from hot liquids and steam, building fires and flammable liquids and gases are the most common causes of burns. Another kind is an inhalation injury, caused by breathing smoke.

There are three types of burns:

  • First-degree burns damage only the outer layer of skin
  • Second-degree burns damage the outer layer and the layer underneath
  • Third-degree burns damage or destroy the deepest layer of skin and tissues underneath

Burns can cause swelling, blistering, scarring and, in serious cases, shock, and even death. They also can lead to infections because they damage your skin's protective barrier. Treatment for burns depends on the cause of the burn, how deep it is, and how much of the body it covers. Antibiotic creams can prevent or treat infections. For more serious burns, treatment may be needed to clean the wound, replace the skin, and make sure the patient has enough fluids and nutrition.

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.

I got red rashes which developed into blisters on my hand where ever i applied Bengay. Please suggest me a remedy.

Burning, Large red rash -looks like shingles. Needs to take OFF the market.

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.
