In brief: 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.

In brief: Ask doctor

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