Lidocaine, when applied to the skin, is utilized to alleviate itching and pain associated with specific skin conditions such as minor burns, scrapes, eczema, and insect bites. Some formulations of this medication can reduce discomfort or pain during certain medical procedures or exams. Lidocaine functions as a local anesthetic, inducing temporary numbness and loss of sensation in the skin and mucous membranes. This helps alleviate pain and itching in the affected areas.

Uses and Dosage

Before applying to the skin, cleanse and dry the affected area according to the provided instructions. Administer a thin layer of the medication to the affected skin area, typically 2 to 3 times daily or as per guidance.

When using the spray, ensure the canister is well-shaken before application. Hold the canister 3-5 inches (8-13 centimeters) away from the affected area and spray until it becomes wet. In the case of facial application, spray the medication onto your hand and then apply it to the face. Avoid spraying near the eyes, nose, or mouth.

For the foam variant, shake the canister thoroughly before use. Dispense the foam onto your hand and apply it to the affected area.

Avoid using the product on large body areas, covering with waterproof bandages or plastic, or applying heat unless specifically instructed by your doctor, as these actions may heighten the risk of serious side effects.

After usage, promptly wash your hands unless you are treating a hand area. Take care to prevent the product from coming into contact with your eyes, nose, or ears. In case of accidental exposure, rinse the affected area immediately with clean water.

The prescribed dosage depends on your medical condition and response to treatment. Adhere to the recommended usage and refrain from using more product, increasing application frequency, or prolonging the duration beyond the specified guidelines. If there is an infection or sore in the treatment area, consult your doctor before using this medication.

Seek medical attention promptly if your condition persists, worsens, or if you suspect a serious medical issue.
