Adequate anaesthesia should be obtained after 30 minutes. Prior to starting the procedure, the LMX4 Cream should be removed using a clean gauze swab and the site for venous cannulation or venepuncture prepared in the usual manner. The procedure should be initiated shortly after the cream has been removed. Maximum application should not exceed 5 hours. LMX4 must not be reapplied for 12 hours following its removal, giving a maximum of 2 doses in any 24 hour period.
