  • Tiger balm patch helped

    Hi I 've been in a flare and I brought the tiger balm pain patches and they did help some. I put it on my lower back. Maybe it is the warming of the patch that at least distracts you for awhile. Anything that helps for the moment, hope it helps someone else too.

    I've used them for my back and they work really well. Have never thought of them helping the bladder also so I'll give it a try.

            Thank you,
            Is there any way any of that can get into your bladder transdermally? Has this caused pain for anyone?
