Could I use lidocaine to strech my ears?

Could I use lidocaine to strech my ears?

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. ...Read more

What do you do when you get a bad pain in your ear? Can you squirt lidocaine down into the ear?

What do you do when you get a bad pain in your ear? Can you squirt lidocaine down into the ear?

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. ...Read more

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

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). ...Read more
