OTC (Over the Counter) Treatments

These are products that are available without a prescription.

Americaine

Americaine is a family of benzocaine based topical pain relievers. It is a "hospital strength" pain reliever. There are two varieties of Americaine—Americaine First Aid Spray, and Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment. They contain the highest level of benzocaine pain relief allowable without a prescription.

K6a patient "During pregnancy, my sores actually changed texture and seemed to have more exposed nerve endings and blood vessels. The pain was constant and agonizing and to even touch a sore would put me through the roof. Because I had so many holes, or open parts in my sores, the things I used helped a lot. So, the best thing I used was Americaine. It's an over the counter hemorrhoidal ointment. I know that sounds funny since I didn't have hemorrhoids, but it has benzocaine in it - a numbing ingredient. So I put this stuff in my open sores and basically it numbed them so I could handle the pain. I went through tubes of the stuff during my last months of pregnancy."

Americaine is available on [shopinprivate.com].
