Marcaine Allergy In Children

It varies: Marcaine is a local anesthetic (numbing medicine) that can be used for spinal or epidural anesthesia, or injected into an area to numb it. Depending on which technique is used, the numbing effect can last for several hours or more. Sometimes it's used in a continuous infusion to provide ongoing pain relief for 2 or 3 days. It stays in your system for a few hours after injection, then wears off. ...Read more
Yes!: It is perfectly safe for someone with a seizure disorder to receive Lidocaine or bupivacaine (marcaine) in the right dose for age and weight. You may have heard that an overdose of these drugs can cause seizures, and that is correct. But it has to be an extreme overdose, given quickly. In the right dose, these drugs are safe and very helpful for numbing, for nerve blocks, or epidurals. ...Read more

Numbness = hours: Marcaine lasts 6-8 hours. Some temporarily altered sensation + laxity of the tissues after this procedure would be expected. Often people are prescribed laxatives which will also increase the chance of some leaking/soiling. If it is happening more than you think it should then can decrease laxative dose +\- a physical examination/review is needed. However, it sounds like it may just settle down. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How often(frequency) can my wife receive celestone/lidocaine/marcaine injection for her sciatica(lumbar foraminal narrowing) and hip bursitis?
Safety: Safe is as few injections as you need to get relief. However if you need these injections regularly, safe is a relative term but typically around 3-4 injections/year. Some patients can have as many as 3 injections per 6 months however that is not a good idea for too long. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Following cortizone type injections(marcaine, kenalog, (triamcinolone) ?) in hip I have pain in both legs - like growing pains. This has happened 3 out of 3 times.?
Pain from injection.: This could simply be irritation of the nerve root, could be a localized reaction to the injection giving you muscle pains. Hard to say without physical exam, but this seems to be an individualized reaction to the injections. If this side effect is too undesirable, i would recommend forgoing any further injections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens.

Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Skin & blood tests: Prick testing with allergenic extracts or fresh foods can help confirm allergy, as can blood tests for specific ige antibodies (rast-type tests).
