Dressing of wounds is very painfull. Can local anesthisia be given for pain relief
Any type of anesthesia given should be done so with the help of a health care provider. Topical numbing creams are available through prescriptions from your doctor. I would recommend you see a wound care specialist who can prescribe you a lidocaine-type cream and instruct you on the proper use and application before wound care. Care must be taken because improper use of these creams can lead to toxicity. Please see your wound care specialist as soon as possible.
