Why can't someone with OA use Bengay and a heating pad?

I suppose the effects will be additive and you could burn the skin...
It is probably best just to use one or the other.

The information I read said not to use with a heating pad. I use a heating pad before I can get up in the mornings. For a short time I used Ben Gay, but didn't use in same area as heating pad or at the same time.

This from a friend who's a nurse: (The same applies to those rice filled micro-wave deals too) "Because it dilates the vessels, increases blood flow to the area & absorption is to fast."
