    personally, i prefer White Monkey Holding Peach Balm (preang gala). perhaps because i grew up with it.

    To directly quote from the packaging:

    “For the temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains.”

    I noticed that in the last 5-8 years, they started making packaging in English. And on eBay, one of these suckers sell for over 5 bucks!

    ack! perhaps you are allergic to a specific ingredient? only the monkey balm does that to you… or other mentholated treatments as well?

    They are both called “preang gala”. It’s just a different brand. Tiger Balm has become well known in the US. It all started with good ol’ Michael Chang. Asians have been using this stuff for who knows how long and it’s only now starting to catch on.
