About Intacaine 2% Jelly

Intacaine 2% Jelly belongs to the class of local anaesthetics used to reduce/relieve pain and discomfort associated with skin irritation, burns, scratches, insect bites, skin abrasions, or sunburn. It is also used to treat post-herpetic neuralgia (lasting pain after a shingles infection). Intacaine 2% Jelly may also be used to treat premature ejaculation. It is also indicated for the prevention and control of pain in urethritis (inflammation of the urethra). Intacaine 2% Jelly may also be used as an adjunct for endotracheal intubation.
