We propose a scaling relation for critical phenomena in which a symmetry-breaking field is dangerously irrelevant. We confirm its validity on the six-state clock model in three and four dimensions by numerical simulation. In doing so, we point out the problem in the previously used order parameter, and present an alternative evidence based on the mass-dependent fluctuation.
