    Not sure if this is classified as “Topical”, but Lydacain can definitely cause severe problems (Lung collapse). I think it can be applied as a topical before an injection.

    I was prescribed torbramicin cream after cataract surgery. My speech and swallowing were  much worse and I stopped using it after a week. My speech and swallowing improved.

    I’ve read that tiger balm is not to be used with some of the meds prescribed for MG. It’s either Cellcept or prednisone.
