This is a numbing cream. It is supposed to be used for about 45-60minutes for effect. You cannot overdose with this like this so please do not worry.

It numbs the skin, after removing it would stop working after an hour or two

Okay thank you that is reassuring, i was just concerned because i read this in the leaflet (attached)

This is why the tube sizes are so small. You would need a lot to achieve those side effects.
