I might need to darken them up a shade or two, so they look better in light theme

I’m surprised there’s not an option to have separate emojis for each theme.

So I remember a long time ago talking about local anaesthetics and what was available.

I have found a reasonable source for topical 20% Benzocaine USP. GoBioMed.com sell Dynarex Medicaine Sting and bite ampules. These are sold in boxes of 10 0.6ml (0.02 fl. oz.) ampules for $4.95 (currently on sale for $3.85)

I haven’t used these for numbing the skin prior to injection myself, but I thought those who might want to try such things might be interested.

oof… menthol … that’ll sting going in hahah! my hunch is that the topical will work but fade quickly and leave a coating of menthol on the skin that will get dragged in with the needle… and it’s non-sterile… not great. would be better if they subbed the menthol for isopropyl to have some antiseptic effect… probably not the best to use for implant procedures :confused:

The Benzocaine and Menthol are marked as active ingredients. The inactive ingredients include dyes, PEG 300, isopropyl alcohol and purified water

The fourth photo shows the inactive ingredients. I have no idea how effective it is for numbing injection sites, I do know it works for numbing insect bites.

Interesting. It probably won’t work on skin that isn’t irritated or inflamed without occlusion and time. Fully intact healthy skin is quite resilient… But 20% is 20% and it might just do the trick… still worth testing.

I’ve got a stack of these lidocaine patches. Use them on my bumb knee, but yesterday and today I’ve used them for big bites after I my legs got absolutely ruined by bug bites lol
Numbs the area quite a bit, but based on my use with my knee, I don’t think it’d help with installs, however I’m still going to try it with my next x series install haha

Since we have a certain level of interest in skin, this is quite interesting

I wonder what’s the evolutionary explanation for this difference in skin structure? Better fat storage for women that have to bear babies in difficult times ?
