I have one of those conditions that make local anesthetic much less effective.
What that means for me is that things like topical ointments do not work and injections have a shorter period of time in which they are effective / I need more to get the same effect.
Having said that, how are you using the topicals? Most topical lidocaine stuff needs 2-3hrs before you are at optimal efficiency, also was the patch properly sealed, I believe that you need the area to be fully occluded for the whole 2-3hrs to get the effects with most of the topicals as well.
As I understand it, there not targeted at surgery so the recommendations are for numbing the surface nerves, it takes much longer for it to “soak in” deep enough to make an impact on something like this.
I’m wondering that too…
I know that not many piercers/bodymod artists use injections in germany due to their use being illegal for non-medically licensed people. They are usually used after closing time of the shop in a backroom. So I’m surprised that they are actually legal to purchase.
Well I’ve got 2 patches already so I guess I’ll just use those.
They are the same as the ones you just posted, but I bought them on amazon
But I was disappointing when they arrived because they replaced the AstraZeneca logo with one of their subcompanies, I wanted to meme the AstraZeneca name on the box soooo hard
I would refer to myself as pretty pain resistant. Got all my implants (except for the silicone biomagnet) without anesthetics and a 10+ hours tattoo session isn’t a problem either. Maybe it would actually feel more comfortable without anesthetics. I don’t really like the feeling of numbness. Now I’m not sure if I should use an Emla patch
