It is also used as a spray for topical relief for sunburn and other painful skin conditions - Solarcaine

In brief: Topical anesthesia
Benzocaine typically comes in a spray form, and is used to numb mucosal areas such as the mouth or throat.
Care must be taken as it is relatively easy to overdose on Benzocaine and cause methemoglobinemial.
