Own experience with tiger balm:
Applications: prevention against tendon inflammation or application with tendon aches or tendon inflammations.
Only apply tiger balm sparingly: tiger balm is a very warming cream and must be applied only sparingly.
After the massage wrap the area round or cover it: For inhibiting that the area with tiger balm will be touched by oneself or by other persons thus tiger balm will come to not desired locations (rubbing one's eyes etc.) one should cover the treated body area or wrap it around. When there is an application at the wrist against inflamed tendons then the coverage can also be with a wristlet.
After the massage with tiger balm always wash the fingers well: When tiger balm was applied with bare fingers then the fingers should be washed well with soap and above all under the finger nails remnants of tiger balm should be removed thus rests of tiger balm will not reach other points where it's not at all wanted (rubbing one's eyes etc.).
White tiger balm not provoking spots: For evading spots in the clothes one can use white tiger balm.
As Thai people are hardly making any sports and are hardly moving in their life anyway the big majority of Thai people don't know the effects of Tiger Balm at all.
