Lanacane is a numbing medication containing benzocaine. This medication blocks nerve signals in the body, so it can relieve minor skin irritations like stings or insect bites. It can also be used to reduce pain after minor injuries or burns.
It’s important to use Lanacane as directed on the label, or as directed by your doctor. Don’t use Lanacane on irritated or raw skin, and don’t apply it to a large area. Also, it should not be sprayed or rubbed on the face.
