Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: liposomal lidocaine decreases pain during vaccinations in infants. The observed treatment effect may not be sufficiently important to change clinical practice, particularly in light of the short-lived nature of the pain. However, consideration should be given to the possibility of adding lidocaine to reduce the burden of pain.

Reviewers’ commentary: the use of an association with topically applied liposomal lidocaine plus sucrose decreases pain associated with immunization in children younger than 6 months of age. The magnitude of the analgesic effect is lower than the one obtained with breastfeeding.
