Abstract: AIM: To assess and compare the clinical efficacy & safety of Topical Ethyl chloride spray & Eutectic mixture of Lignocaine and Prilocaine (EMLA) cream for management of pain in minor surgical procedure i. e. platelet rich plasma intradermal injections. METHODS: Total 50 patients who underwent platelet rich plasma injections on scalp in skin department were included in this study. Patients were randomly allocated into two groups, with 25 patients in each group. We applied topical ethyl chloride spray in group “A” and EMLA cream in group “B”. Pain intensity was noted as visual analogue score (VAS) just after procedure and after 30 minutes of procedure. RESULTS: During procedure, VAS was (3.36 ± 1.29) and (2.12 ± 0.93) in group A & B respectively. After 30 minutes, VAS was (6.64 ± 0.95) and (5.44 ± 0.77) in group A & B respectively. There was significant difference in pain intensity between group A & B. CONCLUSION: Although both modalities were effective in patients but efficacy of EMLA cream was better with longer lasting effect than ethyl chloride spray.
