How does EMLA cream work?

EMLA cream works by numbing the area of application, eradicating any feeling (including pain) in that area. Specifically, EMLA cream acts by blocking the pain signals from the area of application to the brain, allowing painful procedures such as incisions and minor surgeries to be performed with minimal discomfort and pain. We do not deal with pain management at The Online Clinic so if you require a product to relive localised pain, you should consult with your GP. As EMLA is a local anaesthetic, EMLA cream has also been used off-label to treat premature ejaculation and we are prepared to prescribe it for this purpose.

How is EMLA cream used to treat premature ejaculation?

To get the best out of using EMLA cream for premature ejaculation, you will need to apply it to the head of your penis and leave it applied for around 15 to 20 minutes before you plan to have penetrative sex. The cream will numb your penis and therefore reduce the sensation, increasing the time you able to engage in penetrative sex before climaxing. It is very important that you follow our EMLA application directions if we prescribe for you.

Following application, wash off the EMLA cream from your penis and hands thoroughly before engaging in sex, as any excess can be passed on to your sexual partner and reduce their sensitivity and pleasure. Furthermore, since EMLA cream is an oil-in water emulsion, a hypothetical risk of weakening and breaking condoms also exists, so making sure you remove all of it before sex is well advised.

Are there any side effects of EMLA cream (lidocaine, prilocaine)?

Side effects as a result of EMLA cream application are rare as it is generally very safe. However, severe allergic reactions have been reported such as rash, swelling of the face, lips, tongue and other parts of the body, rash, shortness of breath and low blood pressure. Other possible side effects are presented dermally such as inflammation, itching, rash or paleness at the site of application. You should remember that most people do not get any side effects whatsoever.

Can anyone use EMLA cream (lidocaine, prilocaine)?

As with all medications, EMLA is not suitable for everyone. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to any anaesthetic then you should not use EMLA. Please answer all our medical questions truthfully and to the best of your knowledge as this will ensure that we can give you the best medical advice, tailored specifically for you.
