What should I avoid while taking Orajel Mouth Sore Medicine (Benzocaine Topical)?
Benzocaine topical is for use only on the surface of your body, or just inside the vagina or rectum. Avoid getting this medication in your eyes. Avoid swallowing the gel, liquid, or ointment while applying it to your gums or the inside of your mouth. The throat spray or oral lozenge may be swallowed gradually during use. Do not apply other medications to the same affected areas you treat with benzocaine topical, unless your doctor has told you otherwise. Avoid eating within 1 hour after using benzocaine topical on your gums or inside your mouth.
