FDA cautions that widely-used pain-relief creams could present serious health hazards

If you’re a fan of microdermabrasion treatments, laser hair removal, tattoos, or piercings, it’s important to know about a recent warning issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The FDA has sent warning letters to six companies for marketing unapproved and misbranded topical pain-relief products with potentially dangerous side effects. These products contain higher-than-allowed concentrations of lidocaine, which can lead to serious side effects like irregular heartbeat, seizures, and breathing issues.

The affected products include TKTX Numb Maximum Strength Pain Reliever, NumbSkin Lidocaine Numbing Creams, Signature Tattoo Numbing Cream, Miracle Numb Spray, INK-EEZE Original B Numb Numbing Gel, and more. It’s crucial to avoid using these products on large areas of skin or irritated skin as they can result in severe injury. The FDA recommends using products with no more than 4% lidocaine and avoiding wrapping them on the skin with dressings or plastic wraps.
