Numbing creams can have several different purposes. Zensa topical anesthetic numbing cream is one example of a topical numbing agent. It blocks sodium channels in nerve cells, which prevents nerve cell impulses. It is an excellent choice for pain management after dental procedures.
It is applied to the skin to numb the specific part of the body:
Emla numbing cream is a topical anesthetic that is applied to the skin. However, it can cause a few side effects, including a burning sensation, itchiness, and redness. The cream should not be used in open wounds like leg ulcers. If any of these side effects occur, you should contact your doctor.
The amount of prilocaine and lidocaine absorbed by the body from an EMLA cream depends on the skin’s area and its application length. An EMLA cream application of 60 g to a 400-cm2 area provides approximately one gram of lidocaine. This amount is equivalent to 0.045 mg/cm2 of lidocaine during a typical procedure.
Used for burns and rashes:
There are several types of numbing creams available on the market. Over-the-counter products have different strengths, while prescription creams contain higher concentrations of lidocaine and tetracaine. Prescription-numbing creams also contain other ingredients that make them more effective.
The different types of numbing creams are used for different purposes. The over-the-counter ones are used for minor conditions like minor burns and rashes. They are also used to reduce itch sensations.
Used to numb the skin before various medical procedures:
This topical numbing cream is used to numb the skin before various medical procedures. It should be applied to clean, dry skin. A dressing should be applied over the area to prevent the medicine from evaporating. The medication will begin to take effect about one hour after application. The area should not be exposed to heat or cold until the numbness is gone.
Block the nerves below the surface of the skin:

They effectively prevent pain during minor surgical procedures on the genitals, such as blood sampling. This cream is also effective for numbing the skin before electrolysis and laser hair removal procedures.
