: On Wednesday,my daughter has an appointment with the doctor and she knows that needles are going to be involved.I am trying my best to comfort her and she is not giving in.At her last visit,she actually leaped out of the seat and started screaming in the hallway.Is there any kind of numbing stuff to use before needle sticking.I searched the net today and found,Numby Stuff and EMLA.If anyone has used it or knows about it how effective it is can you please share with me.So that the next time her shots are coming for her-I don't want to spend an 1hr trying to get her to accept it.Thank You to anyone with advice.
It sounds like she suffers a lot of anxiety from it. I am sure more so than suffering from actual pain. Maybe let her see some videos or books about going to the dr... it may help.
