Product details

What is EMLA Cream 5%?

EMLA Cream contains two active substances called lidocaine and prilocaine. These belong to a group of medicines called local anaesthetics.

EMLA Cream works by numbing the surface of the skin for a short time. It is put on the skin before certain medical procedures. This helps to stop the pain on the skin, however, you may still have the feelings of pressure and touch.

Adults, Adolescents and Children

It can be used to numb the skin before:

  • Having a needle put in (for example, if you are having an injection or a blood test).
  • Minor skin operations.

Adults and Adolescents

It can also be used:

  • Having an injection.
  • Medical procedures such as the removal of warts.


It can also be used to numb the skin before:

  • Cleansing or removal of damaged skin of leg ulcers.

For other purposes than application to intact skin, the product should be used only upon recommendation of a doctor, nurse or pharmacist.

How to use EMLA Cream 5%

Always use EMLA Cream exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor, pharmacist or nurse has told you. Check with your doctor, pharmacist or nurse if you are not sure.

Using EMLA Cream

  • Where to put the cream, how much to use and how long to leave it on will depend on what it is used for. Half a 5 g tube corresponds to about 2 g EMLA Cream. One gram of EMLA Cream pressed out of a tube is approximately 3.5 cm.
  • EMLA Cream should be used on the genitals only by a doctor or nurse.
  • When EMLA Cream is used on leg ulcers, a doctor or nurse should supervise its use.
