Sorry mods, this is probably the wrong place, still learning lol

Anyway, big warning about melafix, Pimafix, any API fix basically. Other than the fact it's a very weak medication that does little, if nothing, it can be dangerous; to people. Anyone with asthma or severe allergies will likely want to avoid this. I hadn't seen any warnings about this elsewhere but the tea tree oil can be a serious irritant to lungs and can trigger allergies. The only thing my little bit of research turned up before using it was it smelled strong, most people said it smelled good. When I used it, my first thought was, it doesn't smell that good, and my second thought was, why is breathing suddenly very difficult. So, just a little warning for people with asthma/allergies, use a different medication than mela or pimafix

I've never used them because I'm allergic to tea tree oil. I'd recommend everyone make sure they aren't allergic to it, and then get rid of it even if they aren't.
