Numbing creams and rollers at cinerpharma Mega shop. Numbing creams ease the feeling of pain by blocking pain receptors in the skin. Numbing creams and Rollers can be purchased from your local pharmacy. You do not need a prescription from your health care provider to buy them.
There are multiple products available and these may have different instructions for how they should be used. Use of these products will change depending on:
- the age of the child;
- how the product is applied;
- the amount of product to be used;
- the length of time the product needs to be applied; and
- how long the product lasts once it is removed.
It is important to read and follow the package instructions carefully before using these products on your child.
Creams or patches need to be applied prior to the immunization visit because the product needs time to numb the skin once it is applied. The time needed to numb the skin may vary from 30 to 60 minutes after it is applied. Be sure to follow the product instructions.
If you remove the product before your appointment, outline the edges of the patch or bandage covering the cream with a pen. This will show your health care provider where the numbing cream or patch was applied.
