Less pain. More comfort. Safely.
For years Healthcare professionals have trusted L.M.X.4 to numb the skin quickly and effectively. Available without a prescription, L.M.X.4ís active ingredient, lidocaine 4%, is recognized by the FDA as a safe and effective way to reduce pain associated with minor skin irritations such as needlesticks, laser surgery, cosmetic procedures or minor cuts, burns, abrasions.
L.M.X.4 is formulated in a lipid-rich cream that effectively hydrates the skin and helps reduce the potential for irritation.
Lidocaine causes a loss of feeling in the skin and surrounding tissues in just 30 minutes or less. Following application of LMX4, you may notice a slight cooling sensation followed by an increased numbing feeling in the area where it was applied. Areas of skin not in contact with the cream will not be affected.
- Minor scrapes
- Minor burns
- Minor skin irritations
- Minor cuts
- Insect bites
- Adults and children 2 years and older: Apply externally to the affected area up to 3 to 4 times a day.
- Do not apply LMX to children under 2 years of age without consulting a physician. The use of an occlusive bandage is strongly recommended in children to prevent accidental ingestion.
What precautions should I take when using LMX4?
Be careful to avoid injury to the treated area while it is numb and you are not feeling pain. LMX4 should only be used externally. Do not put LMX4 in your mouth or nose. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away. Be careful not to get any of this medication into your eyes. If any of the medication does get into your eyes, immediately wash out the eye with water and protect the eye until sensation returns. Check with your doctor. Do not use LMX4 inside the ear. Do not use in large quantities, particularly over very raw surfaces or blistered areas. Application of LMX4 cream to large areas or more frequently than recommended could result in sufficient absorption of lidocaine to result in serious adverse effects.
