Benzocaine is employed for short-term relief from pain associated with minor mouth issues, including toothaches, canker sores, sore gums or throat, and injuries to the mouth or gums. As a local anesthetic, it operates by numbing the painful area, providing temporary relief.

Uses and Dosage

Use this medication no more than four times a day unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. Allow the medication to remain on the affected area for at least one minute before spitting out or rinsing the mouth.

Avoid exceeding the recommended dosage or frequency, as doing so increases the risk of serious side effects, including the rarely fatal condition known as methemoglobinemia.

Exercise caution to prevent the medication from coming into contact with your eyes.

Discontinue use of this medication and consult your doctor if your sore throat persists or intensifies beyond two days, if symptoms of a sore mouth persist for more than seven days, or if you experience fever, headache, rash, swelling, nausea, or vomiting. Such symptoms may indicate a potentially serious medical issue requiring alternative treatment. If your condition persists, worsens, or if you suspect a severe medical problem, seek prompt medical assistance.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • mild stinging, burning, or itching where the medicine is applied

  • headache, tiredness, confusion
