Emla Cream 5% 5g With 2 Dressings is suitable if you plan to use Emla occasionally and if you only need to numb a small area of skin (e.g. for vaccinations or blood tests).
A 5g tube is typically enough for two applications of Emla Cream. Two dressings are also included in this pack.
Emla Cream contains prilocaine and lidocaine, two active ingredients that help numb the skin for at least two hours. When Emla cream is applied to the skin, the lidocaine and prilocaine help prevent pain signals passing from that area to the brain thus helping to ease the pain otherwise caused by needles or minor cosmetic skin procedures.
If follow Emla's instructions, the applied area of the skin should remain numb for around 2 hours and would be enough time to carry out most minor procedures or for injection.
Emla Cream 5% instructions for application:
Please make sure an appropriate occlusive dressing is used to cover the skin to maximise the absorption, and leave on the skin surface for adequate time (usually 60 minutes) ahead of the needle procedure. You can also ask your pharmacist to advise you on how much to use and where to apply. †Please ensure the needle procedure is performed within the following four hours, but preferably as soon as possible after removal of the excess cream.
Emla Cream 5% 30g warnings:
