However, it’s important to note, as did the several Heart Sisters participating in the discussion, that a small amount of these topical ointments may not cause any adverse reactions and that there are also several other types of muscle-relieving ointments available in drugstores that do not contain salicylates. But here’s the most important piece of advice: ask your doctor. When you are a woman faced with a lot of new medications, it’s easy to forget that even the most common over-the-counter preparation may contain ingredients that can cause unforeseen complications. So when in doubt, talk with your doctor or pharmacist about any contraindications before taking any non-prescription medications.
