I have been using lidocain cream 4% to obtain relief

I have been using lidocain cream 4% to obtain relief from radiation burns I received during treatment for breast cancer. I have developed a rash on my chest, neck, shoulders, and wrists. I have stopped using the product and I have started taking Benadryl tablets today, is there anything else I can do?

Hello. I have had symptoms of vulvodina for over three years. (I m now 62.) I had bad IC until recently. My bladder is doing quite well, but the other problem isn t going away. I was taking Elmiron, and recently stopped taking it. I have bad responses to estrogen cream. Could something as simple as lidocaine ointment provide some relief? Thanks!

My daughter followed a pinterest suggestion for a facial using baking soda and coconut oil. Her skin had a reaction to this combo. I have applied hydrocortisone cream but it doesn t lessen the pain. Can I apply small amounts of lidocaine cream to help sooth the irritation? She is in her third trimester of pregnancy
