? Rash: If you were allergic to the adhesive used in this product you may have developed a rash that is itchy. If that is the case and an over the counter cortisone ointment does not help then I would see a dermatologist. If the skin is just try without a rash use a moisturizer that is a cream not a lotion. ...Read more

How long should I wait to breastfeed after using salonpas patches? I had about 15 on my legs

How long should I wait to breastfeed after using salonpas patches? I had about 15 on my legs

Difficult to answer: This is really difficult to answer because you are overusing the patches. The manufacturer clearly says to use only 3-4 per day maximum. If you are using 15 patches, then you are not only getting too much salicylate in your body to breastfeed, but risk salicylate poisoning for yourself, which can be fatal. There is NO WAY to know how much of that medication you adsorbed into your system.... ...Read more

Can I still breast feed while using salonpas patches?

Can I still breast feed while using salonpas patches?

Not Recommended: Not much is absorbed from Salonpas patches. Minimal amount of Salicylate is absorbed from the skin and theoretically can cause Reye's syndrome. It is rare and I have not seen one. However, FDA does not recommend its use in pregnancy or nursing. If you have already used it, do not worry. Just be safe and do not use it again. ...Read more

Salonpas: Salonpas is a brand of topical pain relievers. There are many kinds of salonpas patches. Most of them contain methyl salicylate, menthol, camphor, or capsaicin in various combinations.

Norm ecg, stressecho, agatston score of. 5, BP 120-135/80-85, felt right upper chest pain near pit and shoulder pain. Heart related? Salonpas helpd lil.

Chest pain: Hi, if your stress test and Angiogram have been normal then the pain is not heart related, usually the heart related pain is in the center of the chest and is worse with activity and better with rest.
I believe you have a musculoskeletal pain, please get your shoulder checked by your PMD.
Feel better soon. ...Read more

What is the?: If you were having angina - cardiac chest pain after activity - you should have been calling 911, getting ems or going to a hospital, and not sitting at your computer typing. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) salonpas and xanax are not the right treatment for an impending myocardial infarction. See your doctor about your chest pain and work on reducing your risks - smoking, overweight, high fat/cholesterol. Take aspirin. ...Read more

Do pedicures at salons pose a health risk?

Probably not: The mechanical aspects of this are totally safe. There are some potentially toxic chemicals but the exposure as a client would be an insignificant risk. I wonder however about the employees who have this exposure hour after hour; day after day. ...Read more

Do people who work in those mall nail salons get sick from the fumes?

Do people who work in those mall nail salons get sick from the fumes?

Not studied: Nail salon atmospheres are full of organic chemical fumes and one would think that the workers have a continuous exposure which probably is dangerous in the long run. Ventilation in my experience is poor which contributes to this. I also feel that tsa workers are exposed continuously to radiation from their close proximity to x-ray machines which are unchecked after they are put in place. ...Read more

Will the fumes effect my baby if I take him to the salon while I have my hair coloured

Will the fumes effect my baby if I take him to the salon while I have my hair coloured

Probably not, but: If the fumes are that strong that you are asking, then maybe the safest option is for your baby (and maybe even you) to not be exposed to the chemical vapors! Good for you for asking! Take care of yourself and that baby! ...Read more
