Drug Information:
LaNacane contains Benzocaine, a local anesthetic (numbing medication). It works by blocking nerve signals in your body. LaNacane is used to reduce pain or discomfort caused by minor skin irritations, insect bites, poison ivy, sunburn, ingrown toenails, and many other sources of minor pain on a surface of the body. Do not use LaNacane on a child younger than 2 years old. An overdose of Benzocaine can cause fatal side effects if too much of the medicine is absorbed through your skin and into your blood.
