Not much...: Unfortunately, there's not much you can do. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or naproxen can help control pain. Potent steroid creams (by prescription) sometimes are tried, but usually are not helpful. If very severe, e,g. if you develop bullae (giant blisters), for sure see a doctor or urgent care clinic ASAP. The good news is that pain should improve very soon. ...Read more
Can I use the Lidoderm patch for a (very localized area)of a sunburn I received on my leg?I have a prescription for these on file. And feel it would be safe and efficacious to use to help with the pain for a very brief time. What do you think?
Lidoderm and sunburn: I would not use it because a sunburn is damaged skin and lidoderm (lidocaine) has adhesive and has to be removed after 12 hours, so you run the risk of further inflaming damaged skin. Would use soloarcaine spray ( from the same family as lidoderm-thye are "caines"),hawaiian tropic ice gel. Do not overuse caines have systemic cardiac effects (as can lidoderm -it is more concentrated). f/u w/doc ...Read more
