Can lidocaine be mixed with sotradecol?

If the lidocaine is administered as an ointment, to minimize the pain of a sotradecol injection, there should be no undue interaction difficulty.

Either two shots, or one shot and one ointment application, should be OK; one shot, or a mixed ointment, is risky.
