OTC Pain Reliever Injury Attorneys for the LGBT Community
OTC Pain Relievers Can Cause Serious Burns
Over-the-counter (OTC) Pain Relievers are commonly used to provide temporarily relief of minor muscle and joint aches, muscle tightness, and pain from sprains. They produce warm or cold sensations on local areas of the skin and come in various forms including creams, ointments, lotions, and patches. In addition, they contain chemicals called menthol, methyl salicylate, and capsaicin and are marketed under popular brand names including:
- Icy Hot
Unfortunately, there have been cases where people suffer serious second-and-third-degree burns following the use of these OTC pain relievers. Although the FDA issued a drug safety communication warning in 2013, they still fail to warn consumers about the risk of burning, swelling, blistering, and first to third degree burns on their product labels. The adverse effects associated with OTC pain relievers can lead to permanent scarring, skin disfigurement, and may ultimately require hospitalization.
