Who should not use pramoxine?

Pramoxine is an over-the-counter anesthetic that is used to relieve burning, pain, and itching on the skin. It is for temporary use and should not be used longer than seven days on an affected area unless directed by your doctor. If your condition does not improve after seven days of consecutive use, talk to your doctor before continuing treatment. You should not use pramoxine if you are allergic to this ingredient. You should also not apply the medication to large, open wounds. Pramoxine should not be used on children younger than two years, because severe side effects can occur if the medication is ingested.
