Toplap Gel is a local anaesthetic. It contains combination of two drugs Lidocaine and Prilocaine (1:1). It is an emulsion in which the oil phase is a eutectic mixture of Lidocaine and Prilocaine. It acts by blocking pain signals from the nerves to the brain, thereby decreasing the sensation of pain. Toplap Gel is used on normal or unbroken skin to prevent pain before certain procedures like inserting a needle, suturing of a wound.
Lidocaine is a local anaesthetic and antiarrhythmic that works by stabilising the neuronal membrane by blocking the voltage gated sodium channels. This inhibits depolarisation of the postsynaptic nerve that prevents transmission of pain signals. Prilocaine is a local anaesthetic that works by inhibiting depolarisation of the voltage gated sodium channel and stabilising the neuronal membrane.
Toplap Gel generally won’t cause any side effects. If you experience any application site reactions such as skin burning, skin irritation, skin itching, skin redness and skin rash or any other allergic reactions, check with your physician.
