Re: [IP] Emla Max

I inquired with my dentist about using the topical numbing product they use
for numbing the insertion site.  He said it would only work on tissue like
that which is in your mouth.  It apparently would be ineffective if applied
to the skin.  So I never tried anything along that line.
