In brief: None

Icy hot is just a topical cream. It has no lasting effects or serious side effects if used as directed.
Check the warning label for appropriate use.

In brief: Local irritation

There are very few long term effects and not much gets absorbed into the body, however some people can be allergic to the compounds and develop a rash or inflammation where this is applied.
These will typically resolve if the therapy is stopped.
