Answer

Topical anesthetics

Topical anesthetic agents are indicated for pain.

Lidocaine ointment 5% (Lidoderm, Regenecare, LidaMantle)

Topical lidocaine increases permeability to sodium ions in neuronal membranes, resulting in inhibition of depolarization, blocking transmission of nerve impulses.
