INTRODUCTION

LIGNOCIN 2% GEL contains Lignocaine which belongs to the group of medicines called Local Anesthetic agents. It causes numbness of body parts at sites where it has been applied. It is used for temporary relief of pain and discomfort associated with skin abrasions, sun burns, insect bites, sore nipples, hemorrhoids (piles), anal fissures, bed sores and shingles or cold sores (pain skin rash or blisters around the mouth due to viral infections).

It can also be used to relieve pain following circumcision in children (a surgery that removes the foreskin from human penis) and can be used to soothe itching around the rectum, anus (pruritus ani), or female genitalia (vulva).

It also relieves pain caused due to oral sores and can numb the mouth and throat prior to any dental procedures (such as scaling or denture fixing).

It acts as an anesthetic lubricant for catheterization, intubation and for other diagnostic procedures (such as proctoscopy, rectoscopy, cystoscopy, gastroscopy, bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy etc.).

If you are treated with LIGNOCIN 2% GEL in your oral cavity, avoid oral foods or chewing gums for at least 60 minutes or until sensation comes back in your mouth. This is because you may experience trouble in swallowing or accidentally bite your tongue or cheek muscles during this period.

Before using LIGNOCIN 2% GEL inform your doctor if you have any liver, kidney, or heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have any infections or injuries at the site of application as a precaution.

LIGNOCIN 2% GEL can be used in pregnant and breastfeeding women if considered necessary. It is generally safe and well tolerated without any major side effects. However, if you experience any skin rash or irritation in the application site or feel drowsy consult your doctor for advice.

USES OF LIGNOCIN 2% GEL

It causes numbness and provides temporary relief of pain, itching and discomfort associated with:

  • skin abrasions, sun burns, insect bites, sore nipples
  • shingles, bed sores and cold sores
  • hemorrhoids (piles), anal fissures, pruritus ani (itching of anus)
  • pruritus vulvae (itching of female genitalia)
  • circumcision (a surgery that removes the foreskin from human penis) in children
  • oral sores and dental procedures (such as scaling or denture fixing)
  • invasive procedures (such as insertion of catheters or intubation tubes)
  • diagnostic procedures (such as proctoscopy, rectoscopy, cystoscopy, gastroscopy, bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy etc.)

HOW LIGNOCIN 2% GEL WORKS

LIGNOCIN 2% GEL is a local anesthetic agent. It reduces pain sensation and causes numbness of body parts by blocking the flow of certain ions (sodium ions) through the nerves that causes pain sensation. As a result, it limits the transfer of pain signals from the peripheral part of the body (i.e., face, hands, legs, abdomen, pelvis, genitals or where the medicine has been applied) to the brain which ultimately leads to loss of sensation.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

LIGNOCIN 2% GEL should be used under proper medical supervision. It is administered by the physician at the region where anesthesia is required. However, it can also be self-administered by the patients if instructed by the doctor.

Take a small quantity of LIGNOCIN 2% GEL and apply on the required areas. Avoid contact of LIGNOCIN 2% GEL with your eyes.

Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration of therapy for you depending upon your age, body weight, health condition and sites where numbness is required in the body.
