If you have a DR that could prescribe at lidocaine, tetracaine, benzocaine in a petroleum base. With the petroleum base there is no need to cover with plastic. and alittle goes along way. WARNING!!!!! The more lidocaine you use with some sensitive skin will make it very dry and red post using it... Also WARNING!!!! Limit how much area you spread the cream. TOO MUCH CAN BE TOXIC !!!

if your working on lips and top of the chin dental blocks will help if you can find a dentist to do it for you.. ask for long lasting lidocane... depending on how your body absorbs the block could last from 1 1/2 hours to 3 or more. or if you can find a doctor who will do subcutanious injections of lidocane which can last 45 min to a couple of hours depending on absorbtion.

Dermine is an quality product that works well, but is is not as effective as EMLA/LMX 4% or 5% since it is not designed to penetrate intact skin. In many cases Dermine provides enough relief to do the job.
