Are there any risks in using pramoxine?

Like any medication, there are some risks associated with using pramoxine. In general, pramoxine is safe for the temporary relief of itching, burning, or minor cuts on the skin. If you apply this medication to a child's skin, be sure the child does not get any in the eyes or mouth. This can lead to serious side effects if swallowed or otherwise ingested. You may also experience an allergic reaction while using pramoxine that can lead to swelling, hives, and partial closure of the throat. Get immediate medical attention if this happens.
