Emla Cream 5% contains prilocaine and lidocaine, two active ingredients that help numb the skin. It is a local anaesthetic cream that can be applied to the skin to suppress the pain of needle procedures, to help you feel less pain.
When Emla cream is applied to the skin, the lidocaine and prilocaine prevent pain signals passing from that area to the brain and help numb the skin. This means otherwise painful procedures can be performed without causing pain.

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 is the best thing ever. I hadnt had an injection since I was 6 years old (now 21) and today I managed to have the flu jab for the first time since then. I am asthma so its very important I have the jab and today I promise anyone reading this that I didnt feel any pain AT ALL. I am extremely sensitive to pain and cant cope with it on any level. All I felt was the chemist touch my arm and then 2 seconds later he said youve now had your flu jab! If youre like me and have a fear of needles then please please please give this cream a go and dont let it go on for as long as I have. Once you try it you will see theres nothing to worry about :)
Amazing product if youre needle phobic!Just been to have blood tests done and barely felt a thing. You need to put quite a lot on though so the small tube doesnt last if you have a lot of blood tests ahead of you.
