Tiger Balm Ultra Strength (camphor / menthol): “I used it and I got a burning sensation and my skin got red. I got really scared but it went away after 10 minutes. I still would recommend using it because it really does works. The ultra strength might be a little strong for me but it does the job and hopefully my skin will adjust over time.”

Tiger Balm (camphor / menthol): “When I get occasional back pain, Tiger Balm always works fast. It's so effective, I forget all about the pain and can get back to doing what I want to. It's a zillion percent better than any other pain rub or patch out there.”

Tiger Balm Ultra Strength (camphor / menthol): “Works as well as my other favorite Thermacare. Smells wonderful too!!!! Not the same old wintergreen as it seems most topical pain relieving rubs have gone to. Feels hot, then icy cold. Forget about the pain!”

Tiger Balm (camphor / menthol): “I bought Tiger balm over the counter to help ease my shoulder and neck pain and possibly to try on my back as I get stiff and feel constant pain due to a previous back injury. I use this ontop of strong medication (after consulting the gp) to help my muscle pain. It leaves a cold tingly feeling if you use it on a large area but it doesn't last long, helped the flexibility in my back and eased off the muscle pain in my neck and shoulders. It lasts for a few hours and doesn't smell too bad. I have the red ointment one with cinnamon in and its not an unpleasant smell. The balm does stick to your fingers a bit and takes a bit of scrubbing to get off. But overall a very good option for topical pain/joint medication. Would recommend trying!”

Tiger Balm (camphor / menthol): “Muscle pain/stiffness. I've used heating pads, icy hot, Bengay cream, screaming toast...tiger balm doesn't get hot like Bengay cream does, but there is a nice tingling, and it lasts for about five hours. Increases flexibility and reduces pain. Smells awful unless you have a cold and then, it clears the sinuses! Even if it is not hot, DO NOT get in eyes, or other mucous membranes!!”
