EMLA is a type of local anaesthetic cream which delays ejaculation by reducing the sensation around the penis, helping a man go longer before reaching the climax.
What is EMLA Cream and how does it work?
The main ingredients of EMLA are lidocaine and prilocaine. They are a type of local anaesthetics that work by numbing the area they’re applied to. When used on the penis, it delays ejaculation because the sensitivity is decreased.
Pain receptors are located on nerve endings. When they are stimulated, this causes sensitivity and Sodium enters these endings. The entry then creates the electric signal which is then transmitted into the brain.
The anaesthetics contained in EMLA can temporarily stop the Sodium from entering the endings of the nerves, thus preventing the creation of electric signals, so the brain doesn’t become alert to any pain.
When you apply EMLA on the skin, prilocaine and lidocaine can prevent the passing of electric signals from a certain area up into the brain. The result of this is a decreased sensitivity and when applied to the penis, a man can take more time before ejaculating.
EMLA Cream benefits
The majority of EMLA users have a pleasant experience. Men who used it could successfully delay ejaculation. Since premature ejaculation results in embarrassment in bed, EMLA helps by eliminating it and even making the intercourse satisfying.
How is EMLA used?
Before using EMLA, you should consult your physician and adhere to the patient information enclosed in the medicine package. Never apply more than the recommended amount of cream, as this won’t prolong the effect, but may cause some side effects.
Your physician will give you the best advice and proper instructions for using this medication, including the quantity of the applied product and the maximum amount of time it can stay on your skin.
It’s recommended to use the least amount of cream possible and apply a thick layer to the area. Using too much can result in excessive absorption of the cream. If you have any cuts or irritation, the cream will get absorbed quicker when applied to these areas.
Your doctor might advise you to put a cover over the area where the cream is applied. This keeps the medicine from spreading to other places. However, you shouldn’t do this if you were not previously advised.
Proper EMLA dosage
It’s recommended that you apply a thick layer of the cream to healthy skin. Men can apply the cream to their penis around 15 minutes before having intercourse. Prior to starting the sex, wipe the cream from your body and make sure that everything’s clean. When entering your partner, you shouldn’t have any product left on you.
