ashatNYU Posted March 17, 2004 Report Share Posted March 17, 2004 Hello all, I was just hoping someone with more "useless knowledge" than myself could help me out with this one. I recently have been having some mysterious hamstring pain and my roommate suggested that I try a Ben-Gay type of product on it before I go to bed. I have used it for two nights and was wondering how exactly these products are designed to work. The ingredients (Methyl Salicylate 30%, Menthol 10%, Camphor 4%) seem to cause some heating sensation, but the area is not warm to the touch. Am I just feeling a chemical reaction? And also, is there any benefit to using these products? Quote Link to comment
