EMLA Cream

EMLA cream is a local anaesthetic applied to dull the sensation in the penis, therefore delaying ejaculation. The active components of the EMLA Cream are lidocaine and prilocaine. EMLA Cream is a topically applied anaesthetic cream used to numb an area, effectively reducing the ability of the area to feel any sensations. EMLA Cream is usually prescribed as a local anaesthetic before some minor surgical procedures, but can also be prescribed “off-label” to treat premature ejaculation in men.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is EMLA Cream? 

EMLA cream is a numbing medication containing lidocaine and prilocaine. This cream is used to reduce the sensation in the penis, leading to delayed ejaculation and prolonged sexual activity. The name is an acronym for Eutectic Mixture of Local Anaesthetics. The cream is oil-based and as a premature ejaculation treatment allows men to enjoy prolonged periods of sexual interaction without ejaculation by numbing the area of the penis the cream is applied to which when stimulated leads to ejaculation.

How Does EMLA Cream Work? 

The two active ingredients of the EMLA Cream, lidocaine and prilocaine both act as anaesthetics. Anaesthetics are used to numb areas of the body and make them less susceptible to pain.

The sensitivity that leads to ejaculation is caused by stimulating the pain receptors which are located at nerve endings. When stimulated, an electric signal builds up in the nerve as the sensation causes sodium to enter the nerve ending. If the signal is big enough, it gets sent to the brain.

EMLA cream temporarily blocks these signals along the nerve as it prevents sodium from entering the nerve endings. This, in turn, prevents the electric signal from building up and being passed along to the brain.

Lidocaine and prilocaine prevent the signals from being passed to the brain from the area they are used on. This makes this area less sensitive. If used on the penis, it can dull the sensation of stimulation, allowing the user to delay ejaculation.

How To Use EMLA Cream? 

Your physician will prescribe the correct amount of cream to apply. Never apply more cream than prescribed by your physician.

Your doctor will instruct you how much cream you should apply and how much you should leave the cream on for. Make sure you follow these instructions.

Don’t use more cream than it takes to numb your skin. If you use too much of it you risk your body absorbing the excess, which could lead to some side effects. The same goes for using the cream on areas that are irritated or cut.

Want To Know More About EMLA Cream?

You should apply a gram of the cream onto your penis at least 15 to 20 minutes before planned sexual activity. Make sure you pick up the cream with a wipe and dispose of it before the intercourse, as you should not have any cream on your penis before engaging in a sexual act with your partner. If left on the penis, EMLA cream can damage the condoms and cause numbness in your partner as well. Keeping the cream on for too long can also completely dull the sensation, which is why removing it before having sex is recommended.

Do not follow the instructions provided in the manufacturing leaflet, as they apply to a different use of EMLA cream, namely as a local anaesthetic before a minor surgical procedure.

The correct method of applying EMLA cream to prevent premature ejaculation is the following:

  •         Pull back the foreskin.
  •         Apply approximately 1g or a pea-sized amount of the cream to the neck of the penis and the underside of the head.
  •         Leave the cream 15 to 30 minutes before the planned activity
  •         Make sure to remove the cream before intercourse.
  •         EMLA Cream does not lose its efficiency when consumed with food or alcohol. It can be used with condoms.

There are several common side-effects associated with EMLA cream use. However, not all users experience these side effects.

The most common side effects of EMLA cream are redness, swelling or paleness of the skin at the area where it was applied.

Mild burning, itching or tingling may also appear at the application site, though these side effects are not that common.

In some rare cases, patients may also experience:

  •         Red blood cell disorder in children. This is manifested through blue-grey skin. Consult your doctor immediately if it does.
  •         Allergic reactions
  •         Irritation in the form of small red dots at the application site.

EMLA Cream may not be suitable if you:

  •         Are allergic to amide anaesthetics.
  •         Are allergic to any ingredient of the cream.
  •         Have anaemia
  •         Are taking drugs that may cause anaemia
  •         Are taking antiarrhythmic medications
  •         Have atopic dermatitis

When using EMLA Cream before a sexual encounter, make sure to apply it at least 15 minutes before the planned activity. It’s important to remove any cream from your penis with a wipe or by washing it off before the intercourse. Otherwise, your partner will also lose sensation. The cream will keep the skin numb for two to three hours after initial application.

There are two distinct types of premature ejaculation. The first form is mostly found in middle-aged men. Due to various factors such as health issues, anxiety and depression, men experience premature ejaculation during this period. This can impact their self-esteem and lead to a lack of confidence in their relationships or marriages. EMLA cream can help men regain their confidence in bed and overall help improve their relationships.

The other form of premature ejaculation starts at an earlier age when men experience their first sexual experience. During their initial sexual interactions, they tend to finish quickly due to their psychological conditioning or lack thereof, which can turn into a chronic condition if not properly addressed and treated. Some premature ejaculation treatment options include psychological therapy, EMLA cream or Priligy. If you’re dealing with premature ejaculation, consult your physician for the best treatment option – whether it’s using EMLA cream or doing counselling with an expert.
