Salonpas Pain Relief Patch for temporary relief of mild to moderate pain can be applied for 8-12 hours! One box has 5 patches that has had its effectiveness confirmed in clinical trials! The active ingredients used are menthol, and methyl salicylate. These 7 cm by 10 cm patches are great for sore muscles, sprains, backaches and joint pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! These pain patches actually work, and very well. They are thin and easy to put on and when done (after 12 hours) they come off easily. You put them on then go about your business. After about ten or fifteen minutes, you begin to realize that you no longer hurt. It is truly amazing.
