Heat causes the blood vessels to dilate, bringing more blood to an area, which brings oxygen, protein and nutrients – helping muscles and joints become more flexible and move more freely. This process also helps repair damaged tissue so may aid the healing process.
Deep Heat products are suitable for the relief of muscular aches, pains and stiffness including back pain. Deep Heat Heat Rub, Deep Heat Max Strength and Deep Heat Heat Spray can also be used before/after exercise.
Deep Heat medicines are suitable for adults, the elderly and children over the age of 5 but we would recommend that you discuss a child’s symptoms with your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned. Deep Heat Patch is not recommended for children. Please read the leaflet or the product packaging for specific information about warnings and precautions before use.
Before you use Deep Heat products you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any other regular medication. This includes medicines prescribed by your doctor and medicines that you have bought without prescription.
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist before using any Deep Heat medicines if you are taking or have recently taken oral painkillers or any other medicines. This includes medicines you have bought without a prescription. There is no reason why Deep Heat Pain Relief Patch cannot be used at the same time as oral painkillers.
