Most pharmacies stock the Rx EMLA cream, but not ELA-Max...which is OTC and just as effective.
Many kids use EMLA (lidocaine/prilocaine) cream when getting blood drawn or starting IVs. It's applied at least 60 minutes beforehand to numb the area.
ELA-Max (4% lidocaine) cream is an OTC alternative. It has a liposomal delivery system that improves absorption compared to other topical OTC lidocaine products.
