  • I would use a heating pad but that patch could work. If in doubt call a pharmacist or check online for the manufacturer's website for warnings

  • my doc said no cuz it contains asprin and all over the internet it says not to (though there are some that say its ok) I asked my sister-in-law to verify and her doc says no also, cuz of the asprin. try a warm bath or i have heard oil of wintergreen is safe and helpful if you can find it
