That's why the Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch is cool. First off, it is latex-free for those with a latex allergy. You simply peel the back off and apply to the area of pain. It has more medicine, is larger and peel resistant. The patch contains three active ingredients: camphor, menthol, and methyl salicylate. I tried these in a couple places--my leg and my foot. It was easy to adhere and stayed on for the 8 hours I had it on. It also provided relief during that time. Here's the thing, once I put it on, I could no longer smell it! I am loving it because that means I can use it anywhere.
I also like the gel as opposed to creams I have tried. It seemed to rub in easier. And the spray is another awesome idea--you don't get it on your hands! However, with both of these, you will smell minty fresh.
