Question for a doctor

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello All,

  I was watching T.V. and a hemorrhoid commercial came on. It started listing all of the ingredients in the cream and stated that they included lidocaine to relieve itching and pain.

When I heard that I immediately thought, Why don't our doctors prescribe lidocaine ointment (not hemorrhoid cream) to those of us with LS for the itching and pain?

I don't have a doctors appointment for another 6 months, can someone who has an upcoming doctors appointment please ask if lidocaine ointment  (not hemorrhoid cream) would be something that someone with LS could use to alleviate the itch and pain. There are so many that can't sit or scratch until they bleed, maybe this could help.
