Over the counter: Lidocaine gel (the generic form of xylocaine) is widely available in retail and online stores in the usa. It is an ingredient in products for treating sunburns, insect stings, and the like. The product label will usually caution against applying the gel to large areas of skin, broken skin, or mucous membranes. This is a precaution to avoid absorbing too much drug into the bloodstream.
