LMX4 Lidocaine 4% Cream - 5g


Checked By

What is LMX4 cream?

LMX4 cream is a local anaesthetic which eases the pain when you need to insert a needle into a vein. Ideal for those who struggle to have blood tests where a needle is used to take any blood or those who need to use painful topical skin treatments and need reliable pain relief.


Why would I need to use this cream?

You can use this cream to relieve pain whenever a needle needs to be inserted into a vein. For example, you can use this cream before your doctor or nurse extracts blood to be used for a blood test. You can also use LMX4 to numb a larger area of skin before using a painful topical treatment.


How will this cream help to ease the pain when I need an injection?

LMX4 contains the active ingredient lidocaine, which is a local anaesthetic. This means that LMX4 works by numbing the area of the body you apply it to, easing pain caused by inserting a needle into a vein or pain caused by topical treatments applied to the skin.


How to use LMX4 cream

When using this cream before inserting a needle into a vein, use 1 – 2.5g of cream (1g is approximately the same as a 5cm length of cream squeezed from this 5g tube). Use this amount to cover an area of skin that is around 2.5cm x 2.5cm. Do not leave on the skin for more than 5 hours. For more information about how to use this product to provide anaesthesia before using a painful topical treatment to the skin, please read the patient information leaflet carefully.


Why do I have to answer questions to buy this product?

You do not need a prescription for LMX4, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that this product is the best choice for you.


When should this cream not be used?

This product is not suitable for use by children under the age of 3 months. Do not use LMX4 if you are allergic to lidocaine, any similar local anaesthetics, or any of the other ingredients listed in this product. For external use only, do not apply to eyes, inside the ear, inside the nose, in the mouth, or to the anal or genital regions. Do not apply to raw or blistered skin, or areas where there are a skin rash, eczema, cuts, grazes, or wounds. Speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you:

  • Are acutely ill or elderly, as you may be more sensitive to lidocaine
  • Have a history of being sensitive to the ingredients of any medicines
  • Have a severe liver disease
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding

LMX4 should not be used at the same time as some other medications as they may interact. For a list of which medicines should not be used with this product, please read the patient information leaflet.


Does LMX4 Have any side effects?

Like all medicines, LMX4 cream can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them. These side effects include:

  • Allergic reaction, e.g. rash, swelling, very low blood pressure, anaphylactic shock
  • Skin irritation, redness, itching, dryness or rash at the site of application
  • Eye irritation if applied around the eyes

If you experience these or any other side effects while using this product, stop use and speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist right away.

Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.

This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?

If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.


Sorry to hear about your current condition, hopefully, you'll see better results with the movicol. Lidocaine won't help fissures heal, but it can help ease the pain. Lidocaine is the most commonly prescribed topical anaesthetic for anal fissures. It comes in the form of either a gel or an ointment and is usually only used for 1 to 2 weeks because the fissure should start to heal within this time.

Thank you,
