I use to get lidocaine pads. Insurance stopped covering them so tried using a large bandaid I would put the lidocaine on it and then put the bandaid on. My pain is generally neck and shoulder so I put it there lasts a lot longer for me than trying to RUB the lidocaine around. I think the heat from the body warms the bandaid, helps me alot and doesn't get rubbed off by my clothes.
I am so sorry to hear about your spasms. I am now only taking very little medication due to side effects BUT truly find that exercise helps a lot, As painful as it is. Hope all gets a little better 🐬🐳🐬🐳🐬🐳

That's a great idea. I've used sanitary liners to make custom bandaids. Cut to whatever size I want, peel the back and stick it on paper tape which is nicer for my skin. I read an article about Lidocaine building up in the system if used daily. I assume it's the size of the area being treated. Definitely would apply in my case. My breakout pain shoots out of my knees relex points, shoots down my muscles on the outside and up my thighs. Pulls them t-i-g-h-t. Everything hurts,skin, bone, muscles.I tried the patches. Awesome relief,but they weren't big enough. The best relief is stretching but hurts like bleep in the process.
