pain medicine

I don’t know why, but the second time around and third time around hurts just like I first began. Is it possible that maybe something I ate that made sensitivity to pain morea bearable?

I am thinking that maybe tylenol would really help get me through this, but then again I don’t want to take tylenol daily or regularly.

Is there an over the counter topical cream that I could buy? If so, what’s the name of it.

I had surgery a few years ago and the nurse put some numbing cream on my hands and when she inserted the IV needle it didn’t hurt a bit. Is there a cream like this out there? without prescription of course.

Thank you!

P.S. please do not suggest alcohol as I do not drink :grin:
