Re: [IP] Site Changes

My Dr. prescribes a cream called Emla.  It is applied about an hour before
site changes and contains Lidocaine to numb the site.  Before the Sofserter,
I had a very painful time with site changes and this is when I started using
Emla.  Now I am afraid not to use it.  I would much rather live pain-free.
You have to have a prescription to get this cream, but there are several
ones to choose from.  Ask your Dr.
