What is lidocaine topical?

Lidocaine causes loss of feeling (numbness) of skin and mucous membranes.

Lidocaine topical is used to relieve pain associated with sunburn; insect bites; poison ivy; poison oak; poison sumac; minor cuts; scratches; and burns; sores in the mouth; dental procedures; hemorrhoids; and shingles (herpes infection).

Lidocaine topical may also be used for purposes other than those listed here.

What is the most important information I should know about lidocaine topical?

Do not use lidocaine topical more often or for longer than is directed. Talk to your healthcare provider if your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using lidocaine topical?

Before using lidocaine topical, talk to your healthcare provider if you have

  • liver problems;
  • other serious medical conditions; or

  • broken, inflamed, or damaged skin (lidocaine patches).

You may not be able to use lidocaine topical, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during treatment.

Lidocaine topical is in the FDA pregnancy category B. This means that it is unlikely to be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not use lidocaine topical without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. Lidocaine topical passes into breast milk and may affect a nursing baby. Do not use lidocaine topical without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding.

How should I use lidocaine topical?

Use lidocaine topical exactly as directed. If you do not understand these instructions, ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist to explain them to you.

Lidocaine topical is intended for external use on the skin only. Do not swallow the medication (unless specifically directed to do so by your doctor if treating a throat condition).

Lidocaine topical may be applied using the finger tips or a cotton swab. Apply the medication as directed by your healthcare provider.

Lidocaine oral cavity patches are applied to the gums by a dentist or a dental assistant before a dental procedure.

Lidocaine solution can be swished around the mouth or gargled, and then spat out. Use a dose-measuring spoon or cup to measure the solution. Ask your pharmacist if you do not have one.

Shake the oral spray well before use. Do not inhale the spray.

Apply the lidocaine patches as directed by your doctor. Make sure the skin does not have any open sores or rashes. You may apply up to 3 patches at one time. Leave the patches on for only 12 hours during a 24-hour period. Patches may be cut into smaller sizes with scissors before removing the adhesive liner. Clothing may be worn over the patches. If irritation or burning occurs due to the patch, remove it and do not reapply until the irritation subsides. Dispose of used lidocaine topical patches where they cannot be reached by children or pets.

Do not use lidocaine topical more often or for longer than is directed. Talk to your healthcare provider if your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen. Store lidocaine topical at room temperature away from moisture and heat, out of the reach of children and pets.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and use the next regularly scheduled dose as directed. Do not apply a double dose of this medication.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention if an overdose is suspected or if the medication has been ingested.

Symptoms of a lidocaine topical overdose may include dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, nervousness, ringing in the ears, blurred or double vision, sensation of heat or cold, numbness, twitching, seizures, unconsciousness, decreased breathing, and heart attack.

What should I avoid while using lidocaine topical?

Do not use lidocaine topical more often or for longer than is directed. Talk to your healthcare provider if your symptoms do not improve or if they worsen.

Since there will be decreased sensation of the skin where lidocaine topical is applied, use caution to avoid injury of the area during treatment.

Lidocaine topical side effects

Stop using lidocaine topical and seek emergency medical attention or contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following rare but serious side effects:
  • an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives);;

  • chest pain or irregular heartbeats;

  • dizziness or drowsiness;

  • nausea or vomiting;

  • trembling, shaking, or seizures (convulsions); or

  • blurred or double vision.

Other less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to use lidocaine topical and talk to your healthcare provider if you experience

  • mild irritation, redness, or swelling at the application site.

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Continue to use lidocaine topical and talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

What other drugs will affect lidocaine topical?

Although lidocaine topical is unlikely to affect medicines taken by mouth, talk to your doctor before using lidocaine topical if you are taking digoxin (Lanoxin) or any medicine to control irregular heartbeats. You may not be able to use lidocaine topical, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring.

Avoid using other topical medications on the affected area without first talking to your doctor.

Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with lidocaine topical. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking or using any other prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

Where can I get more information?
