Reaction to topical cream? ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS NJ My opinion,
In my opinion, you may have a contact dermatitis to the ingredients ( usually lidocaine, benzocaine or tetracaine) used in the anesthetic. You should determine if any of these is a potential allergen for you by patch testing. Treatment is a mild topical steroid. Good luck.
Reaction to lidocaine
Topical anesthesia cream is irritant to certain kind of skin condition, especially in the very dry skin condition. I recommend you may try to apply hyaluronic acid gel or your own face cream before topical anesthesia cream. Most of the time, the irritant condition will be less.
