EMLA is a numbing cream which can be used to decrease sensitivity in the penis. Originally developed as a local anaesthetic, the medication in the cream can help men deal with premature ejaculation.

EMLA is licensed for the topical anaesthesia of the genital mucosa, but not specifically for PE. However it has been used by many men for this purpose with positive results.

Using EMLA Cream

How is EMLA cream used?

EMLA numbing cream needs to be applied 15 to 20 minutes before sex as a treatment for premature ejaculation. You should leave the cream to soak in for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash it off completely before having sex. EMLA is for the use on intact skin only and it should not be applied to grazes, wounds or over a rash.

How does EMLA work?

Premature ejaculation affects men of all ages and has many causes including an oversensitivity of the penis. An anaesthetic cream can numb the skin and therefore can help to prolong sex and to improve sexual satisfaction in men who feel they come too quickly. 

EMLA cream works by temporarily decreasing the sensitivity of the penis. It only benefits men whose premature ejaculate is because of oversensitivity. If the cream does not help you to last longer, your premature ejaculation might be caused by psychological factors.

EMLA is a local anaesthetic cream - it numbs the sensation in the penis. This means that applying it to the penis before sex can potentially lessen your sexual enjoyment. If this is the case, you may find that an oral treatment (tablets) such as Priligy works better for you.

What does EMLA cream contain?

The active ingredients in EMLA cream are the local anaesthetics lidocaine and prilocaine. Every gram of EMLA contains 25mg of lidocaine as well as 25mg of prilocaine. Additional ingredients include polyoxyethylene hydrogenated castor oil, purified water, Carbomer 974P and sodium hydroxide.
