ODD BUT TRUE! You can buy lidocaine gel @ any pharmacy. 2, 3, and 4% require a prescription. 5%, however, is completely over-the-counter and cost me $6.73. I use this for my skin disease, but there's nothing to indicate that it cannot be used orally. Straight lidocaine on an exposed nerve really does the trick. Slap a dab on a A-Rod and keep it there for a few minutes-until pain subsides. I have no idea why lesser amounts require prescriptions but 5% doesn't. I keep it on hand for all my peers!!
