alternatives to lidocaine
I know you can purchase the pain management kit from dangerousthings but for the sake of discusion and on the off chance someone is allergic to just doesn't want to go that route, what are some other pain management options? Would a topical anesthetic penetrate deep enough to be useful? Is there anything otc? I know diphenhydramine hydrochloride can be used but I don't know if it's any easier to get though although if you really wanted you could extract it from otc stuff but i guess the same can be said of lidocaine.
this one in particular offers vials of lidocain up to 100ml. not the cheapest but good. not sure if the kit includes a sterile needle though... either way this has been sorted out
