Brief Answer:
Brain toxicity from the cream is very unlikely.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to 'Ask a Doctor' service.

I have read your query and here is my advice.

It is very unlikely for a cream that is used locally to affect brain function unless it is confirmed that it contained a toxin very soluble in fat and in high concentration.

If this is the case, then toxicology blood tests should be done.

If the toxicity is excluded, the stress that its suspicion is causing may be responsible for the symptoms.

So, to be improved is first is necessary to be evaluated correctly.

A healthy lifestyle, exercise, avoiding alcohol (if any), etc. should help you feel better.

Vitamins B group supplements also may be of help.

Discuss with your Doctor for these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Ok what toxicology test precisely should I do? yes it was a product that I would say was soluble in fat and in high amounts because to be specific it was one of those body/butt plumping/enhancement creams which is pureleef to be exact that probably enhances fat storage in the butt area.I applied it about 2years ago for a while to my butt area and it also has this menthol effect/feeling to the skin which I would say now that I am currently loosing weight I can even smell it in my nose when I breath out probably from my blood vessels that is the menthol feel and recently as I said due to weight loss it seemed like the substance was forcing it way into my brain as I felt it move through quit forcefully probably from my blood and I also have this tingling sensation in my head(maybe the menthol too).what can I take to probably bind this substances and clear them out of my brain and body entirely? Also does glutathione cross the blood brain barrier?

Brief Answer:
Gluthatione passes the blood-brain barrier.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.

The toxicological tests should be guided by the possible compounds of the cream.

I think that heavy metals levels should be evaluated.

The type of treatment depends on the toxic substance(s) that may be suspected or isolated from tests.

Glutathione crosses the blood-brain barrier.

Hope this helps.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again.

So far menthol is a possible substance that may be causing your issues, but, only in rare cases and in large amounts, it may cause poisoning.

Oral activated charcoal may be tried to eliminate it.

Discuss with your Doctor for these issues.

Brief Answer:
Explained below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again.

I don't see any heavy metals in the ingredients that you provided.

Charcoal absorbs toxins that circulate with blood in the intestines lowering this way the circulating toxins levels.

This process is repeated every time that toxins are released into the bloodstream.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
