My child is afraid of an injection

My child is afraid of an injection.

This fear can arise from the pain caused by the injection especially the phase when it is pierced through the skin. A possible solution is to numb the skin. For this, the cream ‘Emla’ can be used. This cream is also called ‘magic ointment’. You can also use this term if you explain to your child that he/she will feel little/nothing.
