Numbing Gel with Strawberry favour
Topical Anaesthetic Gel (Strawberry Favour) 30g
– Made in USA
– 20% benzocaine(numbing gel)
- How does it work?
Cotton-Tip Applicators Numbing gel contains an anesthetic agent, most commonly benzocaine (usually at a concentration of 20%). A cotton swab or q-tip is used to apply a small amount of gel to the injection site.
- Does it really work?
Yes it does, but there’s a slight snag. It needs to be left on for about one minute, in order to be really effective. Studies have shown that application of topical anesthetic to the injection site for 2 to 3 minutes leads to profound soft-tissue analgesia (Stern & Giddon, 1975). The problem is that some manufacterers’ instructions say it only needs to be left on for 10-15 seconds, which is not enough time for numbing to take place (Gill & Orr, 1979). So if you read somewhere that “the numbing gel doesn’t work for me”, it’s probably because it wasn’t left on for long enough. So it’s important to leave it on for long enough, especially in sensitive areas like the palate.
