Re: [IPk] 37 year old male scared of needles?


My son doesn't like inserting the silhouette (quite understandable!) so
his GP has agreed to prescribe EMLA cream and dressings for him which is
a local anaesthetic which he puts on the insertion site about half an
hour before. Apparently it's quite expensive so I don't know how many
GP's would agree to it.
