Lidocaine is an amide-type local anesthetic agent and tetracaine is an ester-type local anesthetic agent. Both lidocaine and tetracaine block sodium ion channels required for the initiation and conduction of neuronal impulses which, in certain instances, results in local anesthesia. When applied to intact skin, Lidocaine and Tetracaine Cream provides local dermal analgesia by the release of lidocaine and tetracaine from the peel into the skin.

Lidocaine and Tetracaine Cream is contraindicated in patients with a known history of sensitivity to lidocaine or tetracaine, local anesthetics of the amide or ester type, or to any other component of the product [ see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)]. Lidocaine and Tetracaine Cream is contraindicated in patients with para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) hypersensitivity.
