Product Description

What is Emla Cream and what does it treat?

Emla Cream is a local anaesthetic or numbing solution that contains active ingredients known as lidocaine and prilocaine. This medication is used to treat premature ejaculation in men.


How does Emla Cream work?

Emla Cream contains two active ingredients called lidocaine and prilocaine which are local anaesthetics which are used to numb and reduce sensation in the penis in order to delay ejaculation.

Sensitivity is usually caused by the stimulation of pain receptors at the end of the nerves. The stimulation causes sodium to enter the nerve ending, causing an electrical signal to build up in the nerve, which will be passed along to the receptors in the brain when it gets big enough.

Lidocaine and prilocaine temporarily block the pathway of pain signals along the nerves by blocking the entry of sodium in the nerve endings at the site. This prevents the build-up of electrical signals and the passing along nerve fibres to the brain.

When Emla Cream is applied to the skin, the two active ingredients prevent the signals from being passed to the brain receptors. This results in the sensitivity of the skin being decreased, resulting in the man lasting longer before ejaculation when used on the penis.


Benefits of Emla Cream:

Most users of Emla Cream have had a positive experience with it. Males who have used this product have stated that they were able to delay their ejaculation. Emla Cream can lead to a more satisfying sexual and romantic relationship, as premature ejaculation can cause problems in these areas.


How to use Elma Cream:

You should use Emla Cream as directed by your doctor or pharmacist, and you should always follow the instructions of the patient information leaflet that comes with the product.

You should use the smallest dosage of Emla Cream that is needed to numb the area. If you use too much of the cream, it could result in your body absorbing too much medicine, especially if you apply it over large skin areas or if you apply heat to the treated area. Using the cream in an area of skin that has a cut or a scratch could also result in too much medicine being absorbed.

There are times where you may need to cover the skin that you have applied the cream to, but you should only do this if your doctor has told you to do so.



Typically, you should apply a thick layer of cream to the area of the affected skin.

In adult male genitalia skin, apply a thick layer of cream to the penis around 15 minutes before intercourse will take place. It’s crucial that you wipe the cream off your penis and throw it away before you start to have sex, as there should be no cream left on your skin when intercourse starts.


Side effects:

Like any other medicine, Emla Cream comes with the risk of some side effects, but not everybody will experience them. Some of the side effects that this medication can cause are more common than others, but if you suffer any side effects that cause concern, you should get in touch with your GP or doctor as soon as possible. Some side effects include:

  • Redness and itchiness of the applied area of skin
  • Mild burning or tingling sensation in the applied area of skin
  • Allergic reaction
  • Small red dots on the applied area of skin
  • Paleness of the applied area of skin

Emla Cream can also lead to positive side effects like self-confidence and an improvement in mental health. This is because premature ejaculation commonly causes men to be extremely frustrated and sometimes embarrassed, so this medication helps to get rid of these feelings and boost self-confidence, improving their mental health.

This medication can also help to improve sexual and romantic relationships as premature ejaculation commonly causes problems in these areas.
