Xylocaine 2% Jelly is a topical fast acting anaesthetic that is used to help prevent pain and discomfort during certain medical tests and procedures.
This ointment usually provides between 20-30 minutes of numbing whilst simultaneously acting as a lubricant.
Some of the procedures where it is used are urinary catheterisation, endoscopic procedures etc. Xylocaine 2% Jelly is applied before procedures, and it can also be applied to the end of medical instruments to lubricate and help reduce friction.
Always read the label and follow the directions for use.
