Salonpas Review: Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch

I ran a 10 km marathon yesterday. Do you know the Penang Bridge International Marathon? It is a highly anticipated and most sought after sporting event in Malaysia. It is the only time of the year where the iconic Penang Bridge is closed for vehicles and open for runners to enjoy the breathtaking view. I am proud to be a Penangite (a resident of Penang in Malaysia). Though I am having extreme aches and pains all over my body and I can barely walk, I feel really great after the marathon. I thought I could not complete the run but I managed to finish it in 1 hour 48 minutes. Not in time (the qualifying time for 10 km marathon is 1 hour 30 minutes), but I am very happy for this little achievement. Salonpas is one of the many sponsors who have supported the Penang Bridge International Marathon. I got two free patches for running the marathon but two were not enough for me. I am aching all over! I need a box of Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch.

How Does Salonpas Work

Does Salonpas Work? Yes. It does. Salonpas is the only FDA approved over-the-counter pain relief patch. Its two powerful active ingredients go right where it hurts. Reducing inflammation and relieving mild to moderate pain for up to twelve hours. Pain relief generally occurs within one hour of application, but in some individuals pain relief may be shorter or longer. You may not experience pain relief until several hours after applying.

For adults and children 12 years of age and over – clean and dry affected area, remove from backing film and apply to affected area not more than 3 to 4 times daily. Remove after at most 8 hours. If pain recurs 8-12 hours after applying the first patch a second patch can be applied. Salonpas Pain Relief Patch temporarily relieves symptomatic pain associated with strains and sprains. If your symptoms persist beyond 3 days, you should stop using and seek medical attention from your doctor. Only use one patch at a time. For children under 12 years of age – consult a doctor.
