Brief Answer:
Hydroheal ointment

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for posting on HCM.
Yes the use of lignocaine over sensitive areas like urethral mucosa can definitely cause irritation and burning. Thus I would insist you to avoid any further use.
Since you have tried creams and ointments with no real relief, I would suggest some novel and effective option for you.
The best option would be to use a specific type of polymer based dressing available in gel form available as HYDROHEAL ointment. This ointment will help in better healing of the sore you have over urethra without any side effects.
Hope this was useful information for you.
Thank you
