“My 7 year old daughter had to have blood drawn for her allergy testing and I found this as an alternative to EMLA cream. She also has had to start allergy shots and found that if I put the cream on the injection site 45-50 mins (30 mins wasn’t long enough) before her shot, she doesn’t feel when she’s stuck with the needle.”

“This worked very well on my 7 year-old son’s arm when he needed to have blood work done. He had a much better experience than before without the LMX.”

“I’ve used LMX anaesthetic for tattoos – hip, ribs, and wrist. Works great. Didn’t feel the wrist tattoo at all some tender areas on ribs & hip, but completely doable, even for a wimp like me.”

“I put this on approximately 1 hour before I have my laser hair removal session and this anaesthetic works wonders! Without the cream the laser hurts like cornbread hell! I won’t go without it.”

“I used LMX 5 topical anaesthetic creams for my laser hair removal sessions on my underarms and my upper lip and it worked really well.”

“LMX 4 topical anaesthetic cream is very effective. I like to use it prior to PICC insertion, before the sterile scrub. Best used by applying a blob at the site, and covering with a transparent dressing for at least 20 minutes.”

“LMX 5 topical anaesthetic cream is great stuff! The only thing I have ever tried that really works the way it says it will.”

“I bought LMX as an alternative to EMLA to use for my infant’s immunizations. It worked really well. There was no flinching and no crying — she was actually smiling!”

“I used LMX for laser hair removal. It does the job but not completely numb.”
