Hello doctor,

My 2-year-old son has hard motions. He has just had his circumcision surgery. My friends advised me to apply Lignocaine Hydrochloride gel between his buttocks. By mistake, I applied more. I am very much worried. I hope it is not harmful. Please advice.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Lignocaine (Lidocaine Topical) gel is a local anesthetic so even if you have applied more there is nothing to worry.

If he is having constipation, I suggest you give him syrup Looz (Lactulose) 10 mL twice daily.

This is a stool softener and you can give him until his stools become soft.

You can stop it after four to five days.
