Xylocaine 2% Jelly is a topical anaesthetic that is used to help prevent pain and discomfort during certain medical tests and procedures. Xylocaine jelly contains the active ingredient xylocaine that is combined with a mild to medium degree of lidocaine.
The medicine in Xylocaine Jelly 2% is lidocaine HCL, a local anesthetic. Xylocaine Jelly is indicated for the prevention and control of pain in procedures involving the male and female urethra, for topical treatment of painful urethritis, and as an anesthetic lubricant for endotracheal intubation.
Xylocaine Jelly contains lidocaine, which is a very popular local anesthetic for use in minimally invasive surgical procedures. It is also an effective, yet affordable way to block pain during brief procedures. The gel also provides enough anesthetic lubrication to be a solution that can be added to water for use as an anesthetic lubricant for intubation.
