Safety Information & Side Effects

Safety & Side Effect Information

Is Promescent safe? Are there any side effects?

Promescent's only active ingredient is lidocaine, which is tolerated well by most people. Lidocaine is the anesthetic most commonly used by dentists. However, some people should avoid lidocaine due to allergies or intolerance. Read our Safety information for more details.

Promescent is a topical agent that causes temporary desensitization. If too much spray is applied to the penis, side effects could include temporary loss of sensitivity and possibly a temporary loss of erection. Other side effects could include skin irritation, burning, or excessive numbing. If any of these side effects occur, immediately discontinue the use of Promescent, wash the penis with soap and water, and consult a physician if symptoms persist for more than 12 hours.

What happens if I use too much Promescent?

First, try to avoid this happening by only using three sprays (do not exceed 10) until you know how it affects you personally. Also, wait at least 10 minutes for it to absorb into the skin, and then wash off the excess before you apply more. If you feel you do need more, only use one more spray at a time and wait to see how it feels (or doesn’t feel). Keep in mind, if you use too much, temporary loss of erection or numbness may occur. Irritation to the skin may also occur. If either condition occurs, discontinue the use of Promescent. Immediately wash the penis with soap and water, and symptoms should subside in a short period of time. If symptoms persist, contact a physician.

When should I not use Promescent? Can Promescent be used if I'm on medication?

Do not use Promescent if you or your partner are allergic to lidocaine or other anesthetics. Do not use on broken or irritated skin. Do not spray near flame or fire. Do not spray in or near eyes or mouth. Do not orally ingest. Promescent is safe for oral contact, but the potential for numbness of a sexual partner is more likely with oral contact. That's why it's important to be sure to thoroughly remove the product prior to oral contact. Do not use Promescent if you or your partner is suffering from liver or kidney disease. Do not use if your partner is or may be pregnant. Consult with your physician before using Promescent if you are being treated for any other medical conditions.

Does Promescent protect against STDs?

No, Promescent does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases or infections. A condom is still one of the best ways to protect against the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

Is Promescent safe to use on other body parts? Is it safe for oral sex?

Promescent can cause serious medical problems if sprayed into the eyes or swallowed. Promescent should only be applied to the penis and must be used as directed. For people who can tolerate lidocaine, Promescent is safe for oral contact. However, the potential for numbness of your partner is greater with oral contact. Hey, if you know oral sex may be in the lineup (lucky you), apply first, rub it in, wait 10 minutes, and then make sure you give it a good wipe, or a quick shower never hurts either. It’s fully absorbed by then, so it’ll still work just fine.
