i have ambesol leftover from a problem tooth that was extracted and was curious if the numing effects would work for a topical agnalstic or pain reliever for a surface scrape.
Yes, you can use Anbesol topically on skin abrasions.
Anbesol Baby (benzocaine topical) is a local anesthetic (numbing medication). It works by blocking nerve signals in your body.
Benzocaine topical is used to reduce pain or discomfort caused by minor skin irritations, sore throat, sunburn, teething pain, vaginal or rectal irritation, ingrown toenails, hemorrhoids, and many other sources of minor pain on a surface of the body. Benzocaine is also used to numb the skin or surfaces inside the mouth, nose, throat, vagina, or rectum to lessen the pain of inserting a medical instrument such as a tube or speculum.
