Is Polysporin Supposed to Cause Numbing?
I used Polysporin on my chapped lips and they immediately went numb. It was weird. They still feel a bit odd and its been a day. The good news it that my dry, chapped lips seem to be a lot better. I've used it lots of times in the past and never had this sort of reaction. It sort of feels like the numbing gel they give you at the dentist's office. Anyway, it was such an odd reaction, I decided to search the internet for others who have had the same reaction. Turns out it is a common reaction. Someone actually advised another person to use it to numb their lips when putting in a lip ring!
