Ask doctor: Ask your doctor. It's a prescription. That's the only way to get it legally in the U.S.

By prescription: Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) cream is available by prescription only in the United States. It is sold over-the-counter in some countries. Some internet vendors sell numbing creams over-the-counter, but I am unsure of the legality of this practice.
