Results from Topical Lidocaine test

Seems like a stroke is likely along with other terrible side effects

Edit: He presented within an hour and later expired. Don’t do this.


Update Time!

So it turns out that the cream that I tried before wasn’t lidocaine. It was 10% trolamine salicylate. So, I made a trip to Walgreen’s and picked up a tube of 4% lidocaine gel. Whaddya know, it works way better than any previous attempts. After applying and covering with saran wrap and a disposable glove, I waited 30 minutes. Much better numbness. I guess the bottom line is that store bought lidocaine works just fine as long as its kept wet for a longer period.


Two hours gets you maximum effect, basically full numbness if you occluded it properly.

Yep. It’s just nice to know that store bought cream is an option for people who can’t easily get a PMK. Also it’s a lot cheaper! Sorry for killing you bottom line dude! :rofl:


I’m surprised you could. Have heard a lot of bad experiences trying to get lidocaine in the US (even though it’s not illegal).

You can buy injectable lido on chewy when you buy Fido some treats.

Huh… There you go.

I just get my pharmacists topical numbing agent which I’ve discussed here before.

Hi, which pharmacy, and how did it go? Definitely in need of a good lido.
