Emla Cream (Generic Lidocaine/Prilocaine) application

Emla Cream is a topical anesthetic used on the skin to prevent discomfort during the intradermal allergy injection procedure. We recommend using generic Emla Cream because it is much less expensive and as effective.

Apply the Emla Cream as follows, at least 1 hour prior to the office visit appointment. While side effects are rare the risk increases if left on the skin too long. Note that the amount used depends on the patient’s age (see below).

THE EMLA CREAM MUST BE APPLIED TO BOTH ARMS.

1. For patients 12 years and older, apply no more than one-half of the 30 gram (generic) Emla Cream to the upper outer portion of each arm over a 6 inch long by 2 inch wide region.

2. For Pediatric patients less than 7 years old apply no more than one quarter of the tube to each arm. For Pediatric patients 8 to 12 years old apply up to one third of the tube to each arm.

3. It is important to apply the Emla Cream to the skin in a thick ¼ inch layer. Do not rub, but smooth over the skin.

4. Cut a clean piece of clear plastic wrap (such as Saran Wrap) and cover over the portion of the arm where the Emla Cream was applied to both arms. Smooth down the edges carefully to avoid leakage. Please do not wrap the plastic wrap around the circumference of the arm.

5. Securely tape down the edges of the plastic wrap with hypoallergenic tape.
