    I'm posting this up as a reference point for information on the topical anaesthetic Lidocaine, the information is gathered from agreements of a couple of linked sources and saved information.

    The information was picked up from: Drug registries for America and the UK and a dental site: http://www.doctorspiller.com/local_anesthetics_5.htm
    Information was also from a Marfan's and Friends site which now appears to be unavailable.

    Lidocaine is a topical anaesthetic that is commonly used in the UK and other countries for simple procedures, such as dental work or where needles are involved and even some cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal.

    People with Ehlers Danlose Syndrome can typically be insensitive to the product, insensitivity can arise from conditions affecting the liver, some neurodiverse conditions such as ADHD (and subtypes) and from anatomical differences such as nerve tracks. Insensitivity to the product can also be hereditary though no specific reason is necessarily targetted.

    EDS in itself can many any skin breaking procedure painful and more difficult than average, a lot of painkillers EDS sufferers use also affect liver function, alter the layout of nerves during development due to differences in tissues and nerve involvement in some subtypes is relatively common. Thinness of the skin can cause hyperalgesia as well as damage to nerves from muscular or joint stress and damage. Hyperalgesia can also be caused by the long term use of opiod medication. Neuropathy can also increase sensativity to external causes of pain.

    Due to the nature of lidocaine it is more freely available to use to different procedures and different medical qualifications, for example nurses, cosmetic companies and dental health specialists may be able to use lidocane as an anaesthetic but if it does not work they cannot always provide an alternative. If the procedure is unable to continue then there may need to be a follow up elsewhere to repeat the procedure with different anasethetics. It is worthwhile checking what can and cannot be provided by a particular practice and ensuring that there are details in your file about your condition.
