Emla 5% Cream is a numbing cream for easing the pain of needle procedures e.g. injections, vaccinations or blood tests.
Suitable if you plan to use Emla Cream occasionally and if you only need to numb a small area of skin (e.g. for immunisations or blood tests). A 5g tube is enough for two doses of Emla Cream. If you choose this pack, you will need to separately buy suitable occlusive dressings to cover the cream, so it penetrates the skin and does not get accidentally wiped off.
Emla is a numbing cream that once applied to the required area helps to stop pain on the skin which can be beneficial before certain medical procedures involving needles such as blood tests.
Emla Cream contains active substances, called lidocaine and prilocaine. The other ingredients are macrogolglycerol hydroxystearate, carbomer 974P, sodium hydroxide and purified water.
