EMLA Cream Description

Nobody enjoys feeling pain from injections, minor cosmetic procedures, or giving blood samples. You can avoid the stress and upset of the pain you or your child may face with a prescription for EMLA Cream, a topical anesthetic. Vaccination time for your little girl or boy? EMLA Cream is ideal for applying beforehand so you don’t feel like a bully for wrestling with and restraining your youngster for the sake of a three second jab in the arm or thigh.

Some adults may also be prone to outbursts, fainting, hyperventilating, or crying as they are administered an injection or IV catheter and can benefit from the effects of EMLA Cream or generic Lidocaine/Prilocaine. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Block the Pain Signal From Reaching Your Brain

Your nerve endings have pain receptors that become stimulated when you experience pain. This allows sodium to enter the nerve ending and cause an electrical signal to build up in that nerve. When that electrical signal is big enough, it travels along the nerve to your brain and is read as pain. Once you apply EMLA Cream, it is absorbed into your skin and temporarily blocks the pain signal pathway by stopping sodium from entering the nerve ending at the site where the pain occurs. Electrical signals cannot build up to be able to reach your brain to tell you ‘ouch’.

Conditions Treated by EMLA Cream

There are numerous instances where people can benefit from applying EMLA Cream. Tattoos have gained a lot of popularity over the last several years. Does it hurt to get a tattoo? Yes it does! Although some individuals have a high threshold for pain, others quiver at the thought of being in the same room as a tattoo gun that is usually equipped with 6, 7, or more needles at one time. EMLA Cream has shown to be ideal for small tattoos because larger ones can take time and the effects wear off. Many establishments use EMLA Cream on clients before body piercing, Brazilian waxing, wart removal, and eyebrow threading or electrolysis.

Before Applying EMLA Cream

Ask your doctor about any risks of applying EMLA Cream while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss any medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list current OTC and Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, so it can be decided if EMLA Cream is safe for you.

Use EMLA Cream Safely and Responsibly

Do not apply EMLA Cream to very large areas without first speaking with your doctor. Unless told otherwise, do not bandage the treated area or cover with plastic wrap as this can intensify the numbing effects too much. EMLA Cream should not be applied to broken skin or open sores unless directed to by your doctor.

You should not use any topical anesthetic on young children if the directions are for an adult. For infants, you can ask your pediatrician about the EMLA Patch as it may be a safer choice. Children should wear long-sleeved clothing or pants after applying EMLA Cream so they cannot touch the product and then put their fingers in their eyes or mouth.
