Lidocaine Ear Drops
Why: Lidocaine does not strtch ears. If you are involved in self mutilation and causing yourself pain, consider seeing a therapist to help with this condition. Oftentime people recreate pain for themselves because they get a familair feeling from previous pain they have experienced when younger. Others have compulsions they can not control a psychiatrist can help you with that.
Not a good idea: The reason is that you want to know what the cause is and treat the underlying condition. As you do that the pain will subside and you will know that it has healed. Giving painkillers, Lidocaine in this case will mask the symptom i.e. The pain is a symptom, an alarm that there is a problem we need to take care of. So the best is to get it checked and treated first of all.
I've got really low pain tolerance. I was wondering if I should get lidocaine injected into my ear first before surgery?

Is it safe to put emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) cream on my ear lobe when removing the back of my earring (since its stuck tightly)? If yes, what's the method & how much to apply
Not recommended: I don't think applying Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) is a good idea. Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) must be able to contact and penetrate the area to make it numb. Doubtful it will be able to reach the earring hole if the earring is already in place. Also, the cream may make the earring slippery and harder to grasp. It may also react with the earring and corrode it (just a speculation).See 1 more doctor answer
How can I treat ear pain+blocked ear sensation? Recurrent for 3yrs. I've used fludrocortisone ace+neomycin sulph+polymyxin b sulph+lidocaine hydrochlrid
But when it comes to local anaesthetics during ear, nasal or throat surgury, are lidocaine and cocaine interchangable? Or is that fair to say, somehow cocaine=lidocaine+Epinephrine? Thank you very much!

You may have a: Significant problem with your nasal structures or sinuses or both. Make an appointment with an Ear Nose and Throat health care provider (ENT) for evaluation and management.
Let your: Treating physician know about this so that it can be further assessed. Take care.
The # on the bottle: If these are prescribed, call the prescriber who gave them to you. If not, you should see an ENT (ear doctor) to see what's happening with your ear.
Shorten interval: Don't double the dose just shorten the interval between the next couple of doses. If you were supposed to take the drops every eight hours take the drops every four hours for a couple of times. Then go back to your regular dosing schedule.
Ear drops: Assuming you are talking about prescription ear drops, yes, they are safe under most circumstances if used as directed. Side effects included topical allergy, burning/pain. Potential fungal infection. The bottle should be discarded after treatment course complete because of contamination and reduced effectiveness.
Yes: Yes, if you are allergic to a component of the ear drops. Or if as a response to the drops, you develop an external otitis, or "swimmers ear".
