Risks and side effects:
A person should not apply Tiger Balm within 1 hour before or 30 minutes after taking a shower or bath.
Do not apply Tiger Balm in the following circumstances:
- 1 hour before or 30 minutes after exposing the skin to hot, humid conditions, including a hot shower, a sauna, or a hot tub
- on broken skin or open wounds
- on irritated, inflamed, reddened, chapped, or dry skin
- on mucous membranes, such as those in the mouth, nostrils, vagina, rectum, or penis
- to the inner ears
- to burned skin
- to skin already warmed by other products, such as heating pads
If a person has not used Tiger Balm before, it is best to test a small amount on the forearm. Wait a full day and check for reactions before applying the balm to a larger area.
Store Tiger Balm away from children and do not use it on those under 12 years old unless a doctor recommends it.
There is little research on the safety of using Tiger Balm during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Speak with a doctor before using it at these times.
