How to apply ointment and how deep?

Postby ecom » 15 Apr 2019, 16:57

Hi Guy, sorry if this is a duplicate post. I tried searching but there wasn't anything dedicated on this front.

I keep reading about how to apply your ointments. Some people say you just need to apply on the outer surface of your sphincter some say you need to go about an inch inside. I feel like if I go too deep inside, it might hurt the fissure and put my muscles into spasm.

What's the ideal approach? What are your experiences?

My CRS (i.e. proctologist I guess) specialist said to just put it on the surrface, and that's what I've been doing. I think it's working but can't really be sure. I agree putting stuff inside when there's an active fissure going on seems like a bad & unpleasant idea so I have asbolutely not tried.

Thanks. Apparently our skin absorbs the cream and increases the blood flow eventually. I am going to refrain from putting the creams too deep inside and see how it goes.

My CRS also said that I should apply it on the outside and it would be absorbed and encourage blood flow to the area.

There are mixed opinions here. My CRS says you must try to put it inside, directly on the fissure, and perform a motion with the finger as if to clean the fissure. There are many posts here related to this subject.
If it hurts, don;t do it, otherwise I guess it's better to apply the ointment directly on the spot.
