Effectiveness of BLT cream
There are several studies in which the testing of topical anesthetics has done through painful stimuli such as prick tests.

There are several over-the-counter numbing products present in the market ALLof them have low % than the Compounded one . But no cream contains combined forms of benzocaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine. There are some medical conditions in which a patient needs a topical numbing cream instead of anesthetics through needles. Moreover, patients are afraid of using needles on sensitive areas of their skin because it causes pain and discomfort. So, BLT cream is best to apply to sensitive areas before treatment.
Topical anesthetics including BLT cream are not produced a numbing effect on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The reason is that topical anesthetics do not penetrate properly from the skin of palms and soles. Topical anesthetics should only apply to the skin and not to the mucous membrane.

Some topical anesthetics are specially developed to apply to the oral mucosa.

Moreover, when topical cream is used in combination with injectables, the systematic effect of anesthetic ingredients increases.
