Detailed Answer:
Dear Patient,

Welcome and thank you for posting your question here.

I would suggest that you try to use some Lidocaine Cream. In the drugstore you can find them without prescription. They will relieve the pain.

Meanwhile you can also use baby talc-powder to keep the area dried. This will help to minimise the inflammation.

If You have other question, please feel free to contact me again.

Best Regards,
Dr. Eni
