For external haemorrhoids, and itching in the area around the back passage, apply the cream directly.
For internal haemorrhoids, screw the applicator nozzle onto tube and gently insert the applicator into the opening of the back passage. Gently squeeze the tube whilst slowly withdrawing the nozzle so that the cream moves gently up the back passage. The insertion is eased by smearing some of the cream on the outside of the nozzle.
