Avatar f tn Benzocaine and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lidocaine</span> are two quite different products, neither are trade names (unlike <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xylocaine</span> which is a trade name of lidocaine).

Avatar n tn I thought I would share a couple of things that have brought some temporary relief to me - Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Soothing Relief cream, it's mild and has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lidocaine</span> in it, so the relief is very fast and it's not greasy at all.

I started taking them for energy, but the side effect was a complete rollback of my itching and other symptoms.
