My lower back hurts after excercising (body pump class). How long shall I not go to the class, n what's a good cream (tiger balm?) to use?

My lower back hurts after excercising (body pump class). How long shall I not go to the class, n what's a good cream (tiger balm?) to use?

Pain free x 2-3 days: You shouldn't return to exercise until you've been pain free with activities of daily living for at least 2-3 days. Then, do so gradually and avoid painful exercises. I don't find over-the-counter topicals very effective, especially for low back pain where the source of pain is rarely very superficial. Oral anti-inflammatories tend to work more effectively. ...Read more

Got bit by tiger mosquito, getting infected. Dark red itchy bumps around it. It was a week ago I got bit. Don't scratch at it. What to use to clear it?
