    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:

    My Tiger Balm patch is the perfect size for my lower back and stays on so well that I forget it's there. I get more relief from it than any of the hot/cold patches I've tried. I love them and won't use anything else now.

      Comments about Tiger Balm Pain Relieving Patch, 5 ea:

      The patches are much better than the Tiger Balm in a tube. The difference is the capisum on the patch which , after an initial cold feel, gives a fairly quick numing as it releaves the pain. I use it on my lower back when I have overdonemy work or exercise.

          Great product can apply where needed without getting on hands or clothes/bedding. And a great side effect is if I use while sleeping the next day at work when I start to sweat it kicks in again and helps reduce some of the pain.

            Comments about Tiger Balm Pain Relieving Patch, 5 ea:

            Starts to work moments after I put it on. The pain just slips away into the distance and allows me to walk better. I'm better able to keep up with my boy, just wish they made an endless energy patch. These things really are wonderful, I have shared them with my friends at work that have back and/or knee problems. I've never known anyone who didn't like them. I'm looking forward to trying the new large size patches that Tiger Balm just came out with. I also want to try their Arthritis Rub.

                  I had muscle pain in the back shoulder area, which was putting pressure on my neck, definitely a pinched nerve. No amount of massage was working. A friend had these patches, I cut one in half and took some generic pain reliever and was amazed by the results. For one, I slept through the night, with it on, and it was fine. It stuck to my skin, not to my clothes, didn't get weird and greasy and 12 hours later, still no pain.
