Icy Hot is a pain-relief ointment for muscle strains that produces a hot sensation and a cool sensation simultaneously to relieve pain. If too much of the ointment is applied, the skin will become uncomfortable and the Icy Hot should be removed.
Wipe off excess Icy Hot ointment with a tissue. Remove ointment until the affected area is dry to the touch.
Dab a cotton ball in olive oil and gently pat the affected area, saturating the skin.
Wipe away the olive oil with a wet washcloth. Dry skin with a different washcloth. The Icy Hot is removed.
