Lidocaine Cream for Pain Relief

Lidocaine is a local anaesthetic. Using lidocaine in a topical cream makes your skin numb. It works by stopping nerves from sending pain signals to your brain.

Releveum® Skin Repair Cream is a patented formula containing 4% lidocaine (a numbing agent) and 96% all-natural ingredients to promote healing, including organic aloe vera and calendula for temporary pain relief and intensive skin repair.

How to Use: Apply a thin layer of Releveum to the affected area of skin as needed, typically 3-4 times a day or as directed by a healthcare provider. It is suitable for use on sensitive skin. 

Some individuals do experience lidocaine sensitivity, so to avoid any allergic reaction it is extremely important that you carry out a lidocaine skin test on your inner arm before you start using Releveum more widely.

“As a family planning nurse practitioner Desert Harvest’s Releveum Skin Repair Cream is an absolute game changer. I have given it to patients with herpes outbreaks, women with yeast infections and patients with genital cuts. Not only does it provide adequate pain relief but it also helps heal the skin. I recently had a patient come in in tears due to genital herpes pain. Within hours of using this product the patient reported a significant improvement. I would highly recommend this product to other healthcare professionals and their patients.” Kirsten, Nurse Specialist.
