Emla Cream general information

What is Emla Cream used for?

Emla Cream 5% is used as a topical local anaesthetic to provide analgesia (pain relief) to a local area of skin for certain minor surgical procedure. These include, needle insertion, such as taking blood samples or applying intravenous catheters; cleaning leg ulcers; superficial surgical procedures like split skin grafting and superficial surgery involving genital skin. When applied to the skin prior to the procedure, Emla 5%Cream provides effective analgesia throughout the procedure, which continues for some time after.

How does Emla Cream work?

Emla Cream 5% contains a combination in equal amounts of two anaesthetics, lignocaine and prilocaine. These anaesthetics are both amino amides that act directly on nerve endings in the skin to block the generation and transmission of specific nerve impulses in a defined area, and this provides reversible loss of sensation in the superficial pain receptors. Lignocaine and prilocaine in Emla 5% Cream work by stabilising the membranes of nerve cells by blocking the influx of sodium ions through voltage-gated sodium channels in the cell membranes and this inhibits the generation of a nerve impulse and its transmission to the brain, which means that no sensation of pain will be received by the pain receptors, although other sensations such as pressure may still be perceived. Emla Cream 5% is absorbed through the layers of the skin reaching the nerve endings and pain receptors, where they work together to numb the area of skin before a potentially painful procedure such an injection.

What does Emla Cream contain?

Emla Cream 5% contains two active ingredient; lignocaine 25 mg/g (2.5%) and prilocaine 25 mg/g (2.5%), which are used as local anaesthetics for minor topical surgical procedures. It also contains: carboxypolymethylene, polyoxyl hydrogenated castor oil, sodium hydroxide and purified water.
