Last month I was going through a process of intravenous cannulation. It is a technique in which cannula is placed into a vein to provide venous access. Starting an intravenous drip was really a painful experience.So, my Doctor had suggested me to apply numbing cream before the process, and believe me, I didn’t feel anything. Original Blue-Emu Super Strength was really effective. During that time I got to know about many numbing creams.

Here are seven best numbing creams that help to decrease the pain of cannulation.


Thera-Gesic is a water-based cream that actually allows the two active ingredients, menthol and methyl salicylate, to penetrate the skin and begin to work in seconds. An important advantage of Thera-Gesic is that it is rapidly absorbed into your skin-providing prompt and effective relief. To get the maximum effectiveness after applying Thera-Gesic, wait for about 60 to 90 minutes before washing.
