EMLA cream is used as a topical anaesthesia of the skin before needle puncture, insertion of IV catheters, blood sampling and for minor skin surgery.

is a mixture of two local anaesthetics, lignocaine and prilocaine. These local anaesthetics are combined with special agents which allow the products to pass through the skin. Once through the skin the numbing effect they produce allows minor surgical procedures to be done without you feeling any pain. However you may still experience sensations such as pressure and touch in this area.

For use as a local anesthetic, apply a thick layer of cream to skin, under an occlusive dressing. For leg ulcer debridement, apply a thick layer of the cream, up to a total of 10 g to the leg ulcer(s), cover with an occlusive dressing and leave for 30-60 minutes. Cleansing should start without delay after removal of the cream.
Lignocaine 2.5% /Prilocaine 2.5%
Do not apply near eyes.
Not to be used on broken skin

Great product

I have a massive fear of needles so using this always puts my mind at ease knowing that I won’t feel any pain when getting blood tests etc I was skeptical at first with if I left it on long enough but I didn’t feel a thing and it lasted a really long time which was great. Would definitely recommend to those who also have a fear of needles and have a lot of anxiety around needles
