Xylocaine Ointment

Xylocaine Ointment (Lidocaine) can soothe minor burns and skin irritations. It has also been used to relieve the intensity for insect bites. Some women use it for sore nipples after they have stopped breast feeding. This type of medicine is actually a low level of local anesthesia. It works by preventing the nerves that tell the brain about pain from being able to send such messages.

Make sure you only use Xylocaine Ointment as directed by your doctor. The amount you use and the number of times per day will vary based on the patient. Never use this product if you are pregnant or still breast feeding as doing so can be harmful to a fetus or a baby. Never exceed the use of 20 g of this ointment in any 24 hour period of time. When you do apply it, make sure the area is clean and dry. Apply a very thin layer where you need it.

When applying Xylocaine Ointment to burns, the use of sterile gauze should be used. Make sure you are under the care of a doctor for burns that blister. Avoid eating or drinking for 1 hour after you apply this medication. Some individuals experience dry patches of skin around the areas that they have applied this ointment. Those areas of skin should clear up a few days after the product is no longer being used.

Some individuals have an allergic reaction to the use of Xylocaine Ointment. If you notice a rash on the skin or have trouble breathing you should consult with your doctor right away. Not everyone is a good candidate for the use of this medication. Anyone with a history of heart problems, liver problems, kidney concerns, or they have open wounds that aren’t healing shouldn’t use this medication.
