Nervoderm is a product that contains the active ingredient lidocaine (lignocaine), which provides pain relief without causing any numbness. Nervoderm works by preventing the damaged nerves from sending painful messages to the brain. Lidocaine absorbs continuously into the skin to help provide relief from nerve pain.*
†Pain measured on an 11-point scale, from no pain to worst pain possible.
Adapted from Rehm S et al. 2010.2

Continue using Nervoderm for as long as your doctor or pharmacist tells you.
*Associated with medically diagnosed post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN).
