Lidocyn Gel is usually applied by a healthcare professional to the area being treated or to the medical equipment as part of a medical procedure. It helps to numb the area and reduces the discomfort associated with the insertion of medical instruments such as needles or catheters. It also helps to reduce the pain and inflammation in conditions such as heamorrhoids (piles) and anal fissures.
Q. How long does it take for Lidocyn Gel to work?
Lidocyn Gel is applied at the start of a medical procedure and takes 3-5 minutes for the numbing effect to occur.
Q. Is Lidocyn Gel toxic?
If Lidocyn Gel is used under the supervision of a doctor or as directed by your doctor, it is generally safe to use. However, using more than what is recommended may lead to a number of serious health issues such as numbness of mouth and throat if swallowed. This can lead to difficulty swallowing and even choking.
