Application of lidocaine serves as a temporary desensitizer for the penis to delay ejaculation.
While lidocaine is generally safe when used as directed, it can cause side effects in some individuals. Common side effects might include temporary redness, tingling, swelling at the application site, or in rare cases, an allergic reaction.
Desensitization: Lidocaine acts as a numbing agent, reducing sensitivity on the skin where it's applied.
Delayed Response: By reducing penile sensitivity, lidocaine can help men prolong the time it takes to reach ejaculation during intercourse.
Short-acting: Typically begins to work within minutes of application, and its effects last for a variable amount of time, allowing for spontaneity.
- Non-systemic Approach: Being a topical solution, it primarily affects the local area of application without influencing the entire body system, which may reduce the risk of systemic side effects.
Severe irritation or an allergic skin reaction where the cream was applied.
Blistering or peeling of the skin.
Signs of an allergic reaction, such as hives; difficulty breathing; or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Most users will only experience the common, milder side effects, if any. However, if someone experiences severe or prolonged symptoms or believes they are having an allergic reaction, they should stop using the product and seek medical attention.
It's important not to apply the cream to broken or inflamed skin unless directed by a healthcare provider, as this could increase absorption and the risk of side effects.
Always follow the directions on the product label or as prescribed by a healthcare provider.
