In brief: How much?

If just a tiny bit was consumed say a pea size amount nothing will happen but you may get a numb tongue or posterior pharynx ( back of throat ) for an hour or so.
If the entire tube was taken i would see how many milligrams of lido/prilo were in the tube . Much of the medication would be broken-down in the stomach but you would absorb some. If you ate the entire tube i would go to the er.
