I have always liked Tiger Balm salve for soothing sore muscles or my arthritic knees, especially after cycling. These patches, though, are awesome, because they're less messy than salve and they contain the three medicines found individually in similar products. They have menthol, camphor, and capsicum. Look at the ingredients in most, if not all, similar products (Ben Gay Capsacin, IcyHot, etc.), and you'll see that each of these products only has one active ingredient.

The patches seem to take a while to activate--I imagine they are intended for longer uses. And, when I'm extremely sore, I will turn to Theragesic Ultra. It only contains menthol but lots of it. It burns the hell out of my skin to use, so that's only for extreme cases.

I bruised my tail bone and I get pain not only in the bruised area but shooting down both legs. I use the Tiger balm patches on my tail bone and on each calf. They feel good, but almost immediately start to wrinkle up, flap and eventually fall off. I tape them on using medical tape. Then they work fine. The relief doesn't seem to last as long as other heat patches I've tried, but as I've only previously used heat patches on my shoulders, I can't be sure about it. I'm going to try something else before I go back to the Tiger Balm patches. I would recommend the product with these caveats.

    Comments about Tiger Balm Pain Relieving Patch, 5 ea:

    I am in constant pain and sometimes can't get to sleep, so I put one of these patches on my worst pain (usually the neck or shoulder) and it eases the pain enough so that I can sleep. These patches have helped me out so many times.

          I am not sure how Tiger Balm does it, but it always relieves my shoulder and neck muscle soreness. I especially like using the patches as they are not messy and work all night.

            I use this at night. When some of the pain is taken away, I can usually sleep better. Sometimes I cut a pad in half and put one on each shoulder where my Fibro knots up.

                I use these patches on my back-hip for an ache the doctors are unable to control. While the patches do not completely ease the pain, I can function and be comfortable. I can't do without Tiger Balm patches!!!

                Really works on overworked sore muscles. Over 62 and it still helps relieve neck pain and muscle pain. Don't like the paste form as much because the bottle is too small to get my fingers in to remove some for application. Otherwise it work great.

                    I bought Tiger balm because it has been around a long time but I did not like the product. I have many places to apply, the first place I could not place on, I had trouble making it stick so I chose another place. It would not stick. The next day I tryed another but I also had trouble making it stick - later I found it on the floor. So I threw away the rest unused patches. I also found them to be 'cold' and not sooling. I would not buy them again.
