• Allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, with discharge from the eyes and nose.
• Bronchospasms similar to asthma attacks.

To identify signs of an allergy to lidocaine, you need to apply a small amount of anesthetic to a limited area of the skin and wait a day. If after 24 hours no negative reactions appear, you can use the product.

Can you be allergic to lidocaine?

All local anesthetics are divided into amide and ether based on their chemical structure. Esters are unstable in solutions; once they enter the body, they are hydrolyzed to form para-aminobenzoic acid, which is a common cause of allergic reactions. Amides are more stable, so the risk of allergies when using them is much lower, although not excluded. For example, ether anesthetics include tetracaine, and novocaine, and amide anesthetics include lidocaine, prilocaine, etc.
