I understand that you are worried whether the use of lignocaine gel would be harmful for you. Lignocaine gel is basically a local anesthetic gel and causes numbness to the area where it is applied.

When usef in small quantities, it is safe, but you should realize thst it can cause numbing of the genital area and possibly a decrease in sexual pleasure. Otherwise, it is not harmful.

Best wishes.
