In brief: OTC cream

Are you referring to l.
M.X.4? This is a topical anesthetic cream that you can buy over the counter, even from amazon. It is similar to Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) - a prescription topical anesthetic cream popular in a pediatric clinic/hospital. Keep in mind it is only a topical anesthetic appropriate for IV placement and minor intervention.

In brief: What is LMX?

I would like to answer your question as I am an anesthesiologist but I am unfamiliar with lmx.
What do you mean by no anesthesia-do you mean he underwent a procedure without anesthesia or is this some type initials standing for something else?

In brief: Several years

I assume you are talking about the topical anesthetic cream used to place an iv.
This agent has been around for several years. Your children do not necessarily have to have an IV to start their operation, talk to your anesthesiologist about the benefits and risks of mask induction.
