Can I use lidocaine hydrochloride jelly USP 2% on my son who is 1 1/2? He has like a boil right under his genital are that he is complaining hurts.
See Your Doctor Now. ! 1/2 yr old, "has a boil". Topical Lidocaine is absorbed into the system & is NOT safe for use on a child this age; can cause seizures & more. Boils are caused by bacterial infection, require antibiotics, & specific topical care. Be aware this may not be a boil as virus & allergy lesions can look like a boil. Visual inspection is needed. See your doctor now for correct diagnosis & treatment. Read more...
