How Does Lidocaine Work?
When used topically, lidocaine numbs the skin and reduces the sensation of pain. It does this by blocking nerve conduction under the skin. Lidocaine blocks sodium ions from entering nerve cells which are necessary for nerve conduction and for the sensation of pain. This produces the numbing sensation that lidocaine creams are used for.
What is Lidocaine Used For?
The use for lidocaine cream often depends on the strength. Lidocaine 4% comes in a cream or patch and is usually used to help with pain relief in muscles and joints. It’s helpful for those with backaches, muscle soreness, and mild joint pain. Lidocaine ointment 5% cream is available OTC to help with itching and pain caused by hemorrhoids.
Since lidocaine cream temporarily numbs the skin and relieves pain, there are a few other uses besides muscle pain and hemorrhoid irritation. Lidocaine cream is also used by tattoo artists, and laser hair removal clinics to reduce pain before potentially painful procedures. Lidocaine cream may also be used before certain cosmetic procedures like laser skin resurfacing and facials involving needles.
