It cools or heats...can't remember maybe both. but when I put a TINY bit on a papule or nodule w.e the next day it was way smaller. 2 days later its gone. I'd only use it for really stubborn pimples tho. Booths willow bark gel treatment works well too

yup

oh yeah what every you do don't get the tiger balm wet, that will make it burn

My mom brought some back from India. I think she used it for sunburn. It's pretty thick stuff and I wouldn't put it anywhere near my face.

Tiger Balm is gold for sore muscles, I take it when I go away hiking or climbing. It's a bit like Goanna Deep Heat (in Australia, not sure if it exists overseas though) but maybe a bit more concentrated and not so creamy.

That said, I would not put it on my face.

We told a kid at highschool to rub it into his armpits after footy training and he nearly cried from the burning sensation, so we told him he should wash it off (which only serves to make it burn more). Cruel, but very funny.

No chance I'd put it near my face.
