I get nerve pain that feels like my skin is burning, even the air hurts it! I have tried lidocaine cream and 2 different kind of pain patches. I have not had any luck with any of them. I guess whether it helps will depend on the kind of pain you are treating.

Soft hugs,

Yes I use LIDODERM patches on my worst areas when I can't take it anymore. They can be cut to different sizes and if it's a tricky area like your neck I put paper tape over them. I've also cut the neck ones in a curve to keep from lifting.

Takes 45-60 mins to start to numb. FDA has ok'd use of 3 at a time now so my Dr writes it that way. I don't always have to use 3 but then just 1 co- pay. 12hrs on then 12 off. Couldn't make it without them.

Barometric chgs effect me greatly in pain scale and getting migraines or just a really bad headache. Use the patches then also.

I've tried patches that had like Advil in them, no relief. The F patch works put lifts after a shower and is pretty hard to get off of.

Talk with your Dr about a test try. Good luck
