Maxilene Cream Description

It can be very stressful for everyone involved when a child is about to undergo any medical procedure involving a needle or cannula. The doctor may recommend Maxilene Cream whose active ingredient is Lidocaine, a topical anesthetic that will numb the skin area intended as the target for the needle. The stress level is reduced, there’s less trauma for the child, and the procedure can be carried out in a timely fashion.

About How Maxilene Cream Works

When applied as directed, Lidocaine is absorbed through the epidermal and dermal skin layers where it acts on pain receptors and nerve endings. This results in the blockage of pain signals by stopping sodium from entering nerve endings at the pain site so electrical signals cannot buildup and pass along nerve fibers to the brain.

For young children, your doctor may advise that you clean and dry the skin area, apply Maxilene Cream to where the doctor will be doing the procedure, then cover with plastic wrap so the risk of touching or ingesting the medication is reduced. It may be a good idea to apply Maxilene Cream to a second area to save valuable time in case the first site does not work out.

Uses for Maxilene Cream

Maxilene Cream is an ideal addition to your first aid kit at home, school, work, and when travelling. The pain and itching from insect bites, minor cuts, burns, sunburns, or skin irritations can all benefit from the numbing sensation of Maxilene Cream which helps to decrease the risk of a secondary infection from scratching the affected areas until there’s a break in the skin and bacteria find their way in. For adults with pain sensitivities, Maxilene Cream can be applied prior to laser hair removal or tattooing to make you comfortable while the procedure is being carried out.

Before You Apply Maxilene Cream

Talk to your doctor about the safety of applying Maxilene Cream to any part of your skin if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Inform your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx medicine you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Maxilene Cream is right for you.

Maxilene Cream Precautions

Maxilene Cream is not intended for any area of your body with mucus membranes, such as mouth, nose, eyes, or vagina. When applying on a child two years of age or older, cover the area after to prevent the child from touching the application site and then rubbing their eyes or putting their fingers in their mouth. Maxilene Cream should not be applied to areas with broken or damaged skin. Until the effects of Maxilene Cream have worn off, use caution when coming into contact with extreme cold or heat and scratching or rubbing the area.

Possible Side Effects of Maxilene Cream
