These days I'm quite lucky and don't have to have too many blood tests, and when I do we have a phlebotomist at my surgery who's very good. However, in the past I've had to have whole series of blood tests and dealt with some people who've really struggled to get blood from my veins. The problem is twofold. Firstly, I have very deep veins that don't like to be found, and secondly I have fibromyalgia so it's not exactly pain free having them poke around to find the vein. The first time I had EMLA cream recommended to me it was a nurse at the hospital who after attempting to find a vein in each arm, the back of both hands, and then my ankles said ok EMLA time ...

Although I don't have the world's highest pain threshold I can man up and endure when needs be. However I firmly believe that why should you suffer if you don't need to? I had heard from friends about numbing creams but the nearest I had ever got to one was spreading a little germolene on my skin.

I had a look online and saw that EMLA cream seemed to be the numbing cream of choice so I bought myself a tube from Amazon from a third party seller for only £2.49. ~~~~~ what is EMLA cream ...

My daughter has chronic kidney disease and one of the ways to monitor this condition is by regular blood tests.

EMLA is a white cream which contains the active ingredients lidocane and prilocaine which are local anaesthetics. It is applied at least half an hour before anything is done to the skin although it is recommended that you leave it for a full hour.

My friend recommended this cream to me. You can buy it on prescription for £7.40 or you can buy it in some small pharmacies for around £4.50 to £5.50. The cheapest price that i've seen it sell for is £4.59. I bought a tube of it when I knew I was going to have a blood test as I dislike the pain and discomfort of having needles stuck into me! The cream is white in colour and quite thick in consistency. It doesn't really smell of anything, although my friend says it smells quite medicinal - I don't think it does but everyone has their own opinion I guess! The cream is to be applied to the area where the needle will be going. I applied it to the area on my arm ... Read the complete review
