Skin-numbing creams are medications that function like a local anesthetic, reducing sensitivity to pain in the areas they are applied. These creams work by blocking nerve signals in the body.
The creams are used for a wide variety of purposes, such as before minor medical procedures or cosmetic procedures. They can also be used to treat pain from minor injuries.
Some skin-numbing creams are available over-the-counter (OTC), while others require a prescription. In either case, it’s important to use the cream under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
