What is Lanacane Original Cream?

Lanacane Original Cream is used to relieve irritation and itching caused by dry skin, scrapes, small cuts, insect bites and stings, heat rash, nettle stings and external anal and vaginal itching.

It contains benzocaine, a local anaesthetic that relieves the urge to scratch and provides relief from irritation.

How does Lanacane Original Cream work?

You can pick up Lanacane Original Cream over the counter to treat insect bites and stings, dry skin, heat rash, nettle stings, external genital itching and scrapes and cuts.

The cream contains the local anaesthetic benzocaine. This works by blocking nerve signals in the body, providing relief from symptoms and stopping the urge to scratch. The cream forms a protective layer over inflamed tissue with a cooling, anaesthetic action.

Lanacane Original Cream is designed for short-term use only. If your symptoms persist for more than 7 days despite using this cream, you should seek medical advice from your doctor.
