I had it on for 12 hours 9 days ago and it is still numb and itchy where I applied 1/2 of the patch to my upper left trapezius muscle and the other half to the left side of my neck. I did use a heating pad 3 hrs. after removing the patch and twice a day for the next 2 days. I'm also getting dizzy when I get up after lying down.
The side effects of Lidocaine patch are as followed:
Swelling, blisters, or changes in skin color at the site of application may occur.
These effects usually disappear within a few minutes or hours if any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
I Hope this helped :)
