I had a big skin tag on my neck and I wanted to remove it. So, I started using a cream but it didn’t work well, I was very upset, there was no option left other than a painful skin tag removal surgery. But one day as I was surfing the Internet,I came to know about numbing creams such asGiGi,Cobroxin and Vasocaine.

These creams 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, Iconsulted a Dermatologist about the numbing creams and hesaid 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 GiGi anestheticon the neck, and believe me, I didn’t feel anything. My dermatologist removed 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 to help you.
