Xylocaine Jelly is primarily used to prevent and relieve pain during certain medical procedures, such as inserting a tube into the urinary tract. Xylocaine Jelly is also used to numb the lining of the mouth, throat, or nose before specific medical procedures, such as intubation. Additionally, it can be used to alleviate pain caused by swelling of the urinary tract (urethritis). Xylocaine Jelly works by numbing certain areas of the body that are moist. This is achieved through the action of lidocaine, which belongs to a class of drugs known as local anesthetics.
  • If a healthcare provider applies Xylocaine Jelly, follow their directions carefully.
  • If using Xylocaine Jelly at home, get complete instructions from your healthcare provider and the product package.
  • Clean the affected area if possible, and apply with clean hands.
  • Avoid eyes. Be careful not to get Xylocaine Jelly in your eyes.
  • Wash your hands after using Xylocaine Jelly.
  • Throw away any unused jelly after the first use.
  • If used in the mouth or throat, be aware of swallowing difficulties and choking risks due to numbness. Avoid eating or chewing gum for 1 hour after application.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if the numb area doesn't improve or if your condition worsens.
  • Don't use Xylocaine Jelly for medical procedures without healthcare provider guidance.
  • Don't increase your dose or use it more often than prescribed.
  • Don't exceed 4 doses in 24 hours. Don't use more often or for longer than prescribed.
  • Don't eat/chew gum with mouth/throat numbness. Avoid eating or chewing gum for 1 hour after using Xylocaine Jelly in the mouth or throat to prevent choking.
