i was wondering the same thing at the drugstore the other day. i decided to get a heating pad instead and found that really helped my sore back. they say to only use it for 15 mins at a time though. it might help!

I was told not to use Bengay while pregnant because it contains aspirin or something that is harmful to the baby.

I would think since it's topical it would be fine. But you should check with your Dr. to be sure.

I've always used Bengay while pregnant. They have one that I love that's odorless. I have several tubes of it here. I use it on my knees and legs.

I've used Icy Hot before. I'm going to ask my OB about it on Friday.
