Pain Relief Warning

Methyl salicylate, an ingredient in common pain relievers such as Ben Gay, Tiger Balm, and Icy Hot, can kill if used on over 40% of the body or combined with aspirin use.

A hgih school cross country runner has recently succumbed to this stuff. If you're anything like me, you hardly use pain relievers at all, but if not, consider yourselves warned.
