I had a narrow stalk of skin on my neck, it didn’t hurt or irritatedme but it looks ugly every time when I see it. I wanted to remove it but every cream I used for it, failed. I was upset because there is no option left other than painful skin removal surgery. I was scared and depressed than one day as I was going out for shopping, Iheard the ad fornumbing cream on the radio in my car, I came home and searched over the internet about numbing sprays that day I was relieved from all the tension and depression. There are many numbing sprays in the market likeGiGi, Cobroxin and Vasocaine,

These sprays are topical anesthetic that is used to reduce the pain in the small areas including skin, nose, and throat. Numbing creams work by blocking the nerve endings to prevent it from sending pain signals to the brain. The result of the blockage is the failure to feel the pain. I wasn’t sure about the procedure and side effects of the cream. So, I consulted a Dermatologist about the numbing sprays and he said they are good for numbing the skin before the treatment and there are no side effects of them.

One hour before the treatment I applied the Gig anesthetic on the neck, and believe me, I didn’t feel anything. My dermatologist removes the skin tag from my neck. And now you can’t even tell there was one there. However, during my research, I also found that these numbing creams have different ingredients and not meant for the same purpose.

Here are some numbing sprays to help you.
