Lidocaine and Phenol Battle Pain in Absorbine Jr. PRO
The NEW Absorbine Jr. PRO helps fight pain better than before by using special medicine called lidocaine and phenol that you put on your skin where it hurts.
Studies have found that a special medicine called lidocaine can help lower back pain if it has 5% of the medicine. They have also found that it might help other types of pain like arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome. Lidocaine works by blocking channels necessary for initiating and transmitting nerve impulses and numbing the area where it’s been applied. The new over the counter Absorbine Jr. PRO formula uses 4% lidocaine, the maximum strength available without a prescription.
Lidocaine and Phenol Work Together to Fight Pain
But by adding phenol to lidocaine, the new Absorbine Jr. PRO packs a unique new punch against pain. Phenol is like lidocaine because it also stops pain signals from happening. But it can also keep stopping them for a longer time. Additionally, phenol can inhibit some blood flow to the affected area, which can help to interrupt pain and inflammation cycles.
Because the skin readily absorbs phenol, it starts working quickly. Doctors have been using lidocaine for pain relief since the 1940s, and it’s very safe. Phenol is also safe to use for pain, even on delicate skin. Phenol has been used for years as one of the main ingredients in sore throat sprays.
Before using phenol products, you may perform a patch test on the skin to ensure no adverse reactions occur.
You can use Absorbine Jr. PRO almost anywhere you have joint, muscle, tendon, or ligament pain. Try the lidocaine spray for hard-to-reach places, like shoulders and back. For areas such as the neck and lower back, try the lidocaine roll-on. You may find the over the counter lidocaine cream easier to apply for easier-to-reach areas like elbows and hands.
