Product Information

Emla Cream 5% 30g Tube

Features

Emla Cream is a numbing cream for easing the pain of needle procedures e.g. injections, vaccinations or blood tests, and cosmetic procedures involving needles or lasers e.g. tattoo application or removal

Benefit

Scared of needles? You’re not alone. Did you know up to one in four of us share a fear of needles? For one in 10, the fear is severe enough to be considered a phobia. The fear is real, but it shouldn’t get in the way of making sure you get important medical treatments… or even that tattoo you’ve been dreaming about. Emla is a numbing cream helps ease the pain of medical or cosmetic

Warning or Restrictions

Like all medicines, Emla Cream can cause side effects, but not everyone is affected. Stop using the cream and contact your doctor or pharmacist if any side effects bother you or do not seem to go away. Tell your doctor about anything else that makes you feel unwell while you are using Emla cream.
A mild reaction (paleness or redness of the skin, slight puffiness, initial burning or itching) may occur where Emla Cream is used. This is normal and will disappear in a short while.
Emla Cream contains macrogolglycerol hydroxystearate. This may cause a skin reaction in people who are sensitive to it.
Avoid getting Emla in your eyes as it may irritate. If this happens, immediately rinse well with lukewarm water or salt solution and be careful to protect your eye until feeling returns.

Product Specification

Emla Cream contains active substances, called lidocaine and prilocaine. The other ingredients are macrogolglycerol hydroxystearate, carbomer 974P, sodium hydroxide and purified water.

Product code: 793665

Product Uses

Apply Emla Cream about one hour before the procedure. The cream should be applied as a thick blob to the area of skin where the needle is going to be inserted. Always cover Emla Cream with a water- and air-tight dressing known as an “occlusive” dressing, so the cream penetrates the skin and does not get wiped off.
You must remove the cream after one hour for infants aged less than one year. Otherwise you can leave Emla on for up to five hours. Please note that application for longer than 5 hours is not recommended.

Tips and Advice

It is important to apply Emla Cream about an hour in advance of the procedure and to cover it with a water- and air-tight dressing known as an “occlusive” dressing. Some packs come with dressings included but if you choose or are offered a pack that only contains a tube of cream, don’t forget to purchase suitable occlusive dressings, so the cream penetrates the skin and does not get wiped off.
