Re: [IP] Emla Max

I don't mean this in a rude way...but when you use anbesol as directed you
are placing it in your mouth!  If it isn't supposed to enter the body in
anyway, doesn't that kind of make it dangerous to place it inside ones
mouth?  My guess is that anbesol isn't believed to be very effective
anywhere else on the body, and thus they don't advertise it.
