  • What is EMLA cream?

    EMLA cream is a local anaesthetic cream, often used by doctors for minor surgical procedures. It has also been used to help men who suffer premature ejaculation, by numbing the sensitivity of the penis.

  • How Does EMLA work?

    EMLA works by numbing the sensitivity of the penis, meaning that you are less likely to ejaculate with minimal stimulation.

  • How do I apply EMLA?

    EMLA should be applied around 20 minutes before sexual activity and left on. After this time, you should wash the cream off before having sex.

  • Does EMLA have side effects?

    EMLA can cause redness, tingling or slight swelling of the skin in the area it is used. It’s a good idea to patch test any cream before use, to make sure you do not have a poor reaction. 

  • Will EMLA help resolve my premature ejaculation?

    No. EMLA cream helps treat the symptoms of premature ejaculation, but does not address the underlying causes long term.

Apply cream directly to penis approximately 15 to 20 minutes prior to sexual activity. First, the penis and hands should be washed and cleaned prior to applying the cream. Then the cream should be applied, allowed to absorb into the skin. Finally, any residue of the cream left on the skin after the 15 – 20 minutes should be washed off prior to sexual activity.


Do not apply EMLA cream to broken Skin

If you are taking anti-arrhythmic medication such as amiodarone please consult your GP prior to using EMLA cream as there is some systemic absorption which can affect ECGs.

If you have any skin conditions affecting the area where you intend to apply EMLA cream or are allergic to any of the ingredients contained in EMLA avoid its use. Particularly macrogolglycerol hydroxystearate which may cause skin reactions in some individuals. A full list of ingredients can be seen in the patient information leaflet.


EMLA cream contains the local anesthetics prilocaine and lidocaine.
