Emla Cream 5x5g Tubes with 12 Dressings is used to ease the pain of needle procedures, including injections, blood tests and cannula insertions.

Emla Cream 5% 5x5g Tubes with 12 Dressings is suitable if you plan to use Emla prior to procedures such as blood tests or repeated injections for an ongoing medical condition. 12 dressings are also included in this pack, which is enough for 10 or more applications on cream when numbing a small area of skin.

How does Emla Cream work?

Emla Cream contains prilocaine and lidocaine; these two active ingredients 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.

What is Emla Cream used for?

  • It can be used to numb the skin before needle procedures such as injections, vaccinations, blood tests and cannula insertions.
  • It can be used prior to cosmetic skin procedures involving needles or lasers e.g. tattoo application and laser hair removal.
  • It can be used with children of any age (from full-time birth) prior to needle procedures, including childhood immunisations to reduce pain and make it less distressing for you or your child when visiting a doctor. (Note: if using for a child less than 1-year-old, you must remove the cream after one hour).
