Strong pain relief that works! Yes it will get your attention but if that isn't what you are looking for then the "Ultra Strength" and "Strongest Ever" should have tipped you off. After trying so many others that did nothing, and many providing about as much relief as hand lotion, this was a winner. You may get some initial mild discomfort but it will then ease quickly into ahhhhhhhh territory. For me, be it shin splints, sore shoulder or dodgy knee, this does the job.

Caused severe 2nd degree burns!

I used Ben Gay ultra strength to ease back, arm, and chest pain resulting from acute bronchitis. I used it once. Then six hours later applied it again. It immediately turned red and burning, so I washed it off as quickly as I could - but not soon enough! It caused 2nd degree burns over the whole area where it had been applied. I am still hurting badly after 3 weeks, prednisone and Rx pain killers from my family doctor. I have never had sensitive skin or skin allergies of any kind! I did not know until AFTER using it that the FDA warms about this possibility. There should be a warning on the packaging to try it on a small area. BEWARE!!!

I would Love to see you produce the Ultra Strength formula with same strengths in an aerosol. There is a spray on the market now with that formula, but many years ago the Mentholatum company discontinued theirs............. I love your product BUT the spray would be so much more convenient and Practical. ....as a 'senior citizen, I have been an avid weightlifter for over 40 years and continue!.....

Best muscle relief

I am in my 30s now but I started using this in my early teen years. LOVE it! I used to use the regular strength, but either they discontinued it or it has been renamed. I have fairly sensitive skin, but I've never had the problems some reviewers reported. Any way, this is strong relief, it sinks in quickly-and a little goes a long way. Love the minty scent, even if the rest of the household doesn't! When I have a backache or period aches and pains that painkillers can't touch, I reach for this. Please don't ever discontinue this product!

Bengay® Ultra Strength Pain Relieving Cream

I received my sample of Bengay and could not wait to try it. I suffer from daily back pain and I am always looking for something to help relive the pain. I am always sceptical about new products..never expecting the results I received. I used it first thing in the morning and had a day were I could do more daily activities. My daughter also used the Bengay after running to relieve her leg cramps/pain and she loved it. She now uses the Bengay after her runs. We would both recomme_nd Bengay to others.
