Emla cream gets to work within 60 minutes
• Includes one 5g tube of cream (non-absorbent dressings should be purchased separately)
Emla cream contains two active substances, lidocaine and prilocaine, which together create a numbing effect. This numbing action of Emla works on the skin to provide pain relief during procedures that use a needle, such as blood tests and injections. When using Emla cream you may still experience feelings of pressure and touch during your procedure.
Typically, Emla cream should be applied 60 minutes before the procedure takes place. In most cases, it can take around an hour for Emla to achieve its numbing effect. However, make sure to read the patient leaflet before you apply as different circumstances can affect the numbing process.
When applying the numbing cream to your chosen area of skin you’ll need to cover the spot with an air-tight, transparent dressing. These are known as occlusive dressing and allow the active ingredients to soak into the skin.

Research shows the humble nose holds the key to a good night’s sleep.
The ability to breathe freely through the nose during sleep, rather than the mouth, is essential to optimizing our sleep, as well as our long term health.
If congestion, blockages, a deviated septum, or simply narrow airways are affecting your ability to breathe freely, disrupting your sleep or contributing to snoring, then Mute may be right for you.
Mute is a comfortable nasal dilator that is designed to increase airflow and improve nasal breathing by gently opening the airways during sleep. For people who snore due to nasal obstruction, Mute may be one of the best snoring remedies as it improves the airflow through the nose to reduce the reliance on mouth breathing.
By breathing more freely through the nose, Mute may reduce the effects of night-time nasal congestion and may reduce snoring.
