Emla Patch - Topical Anaesthetic x 2
EMLA NUMBING CREAM (Topical anaesthetic) 2 patches in pack.
EMLA is a mixture of two local anaesthetics, lignocaine and prilocaine.
These local anaesthetics are combined with special agents which allow the products to pass through the skin. Once through the skin the numbing effect they produce allows minor surgical procedures to be performed with a complete or significant reduction in pain.
These procedures can include taking blood samples, vaccination, skin grafting, cleaning leg ulcers, inserting an intravenous catheter, minor superficial cosmetic procedures and procedures on genital skin.
EMLA is available as a cream which is applied then covered with a dressing, or as a patch, which has the cream and dressing already to use.
