Local anesthetics: Hello. What are you trying to treat with local anesthetics? Target, Walmart and your local pharmacies sell over the counter topical and oral forms at very low strengths. You would need a prescription from your medical provider in order to obtain a stronger strength (example topical lidocaine prescription strength seen as strong as 10% and is useful for stab, burn, pins/needles, sting, numbness)
