The Emla Cream 5% Pre-medication pack contains 1x5g of cream with 2 dressings. Emla Cream contains two active ingredients, lidocaine and prilocaine. These are both local anaesthetics that are used to numb areas that would otherwise feel pain. The cream can be used for pain relief on the skin prior to procedures such as needle insertion and minor skin surgery in adults, children & Babies.

Emla Cream 5% Pre-Medication Pack is a local anaesthetic cream that can be applied to the skin to suppress the pain of needle procedures. Its formula has been used successfully in GP surgeries and hospitals for years. Emla cream contains prilocaine and lidocaine, two ingredients that numb the skin. (The cream is left on the skin for at least 60 minutes to take effect). The result is one you'll love - less pain when you have a needle procedure. How does it work? Emla cream is a local anaesthetic that can be applied to the skin to help suppress the pain of needle procedures. When Emla cream is applied to the skin, the lidocaine and prilocaine prevent pain signals passing from that area to the brain and so numb the skin. This means otherwise painful procedures can be performed without causing pain. What is it used for? Many of us are anxious about having vaccinations, mainly because of the pain of the injection. The cream can be used to temporarily numb the surface of the skin before procedures such as injections, taking blood samples and minor skin surgery. You can apply emla cream at home, prior to a needle involving procedure, to reduce pain and so make it less distressing for you or your child when visiting a doctor. Emla can be used to temporarily numb the genital skin before surgical treatment of localised lesions, such as the removal of genital warts. In adult men it can also be used to numb the genital skin before injections of local anaesthetics into this area. A doctor or nurse must supervise the use of Emla when used on the genitals. Why use Emla Cream If you hate needles you're not alone. Approximately 10% of people have a real aversion to needles. We're not sure why this happens, but the physical pain of the needle may create a psychological fear of needles in the future. Children can become affected and, if not addresses, this fear can become a problem in adulthood too. There are lots common reasons for needles to be used these days. These can include blood testing, blood donation, vaccinations and some minor cosmetic skin procedures.
