Viscous lidocaine 2% in multiple formulations
Lidocaine mouthwash is used for managing oral pain from sores and oral treatments. Lidocaine is a powerful anesthetic used to numb the surfaces in the mouth. A lidocaine mouthwash is particularly effective for treating oral mucosal lesions, also called canker sores. A patient who complains of pain from canker sores will experience fast pain relief from a mouthwash that contains lidocaine.
A lidocaine mouthwash can also include corticosteroids, antifungals, and antihistamines to treat multiple aspects of stomatitis. A formulation with Maalox/Mylanta can help the lidocaine stay on the surfaces of the mouth longer and provide a protective coating to sensitive areas.
