How is EMLA cream used?
All medications we offer are fully licensed within the UK. Some medications, like this one, we prescribe for conditions or circumstances that are outside of the licence (also known as ‘off-label’). Prescribing ‘off-label’ is common practice by healthcare professionals to ensure a medication can safely benefit as many patients as possible. This is always based on updated information and evidence since the product first became available.
How does EMLA work?
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.
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.
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.

If you prefer to order online, you can use our online doctor service. All the medications that are available through the Superdrug Online Doctor service are dispensed by Superdrug pharmacies.
