Commonly Used Dosage Guidelines for Scheriproct Ointment.

Generally, the ointment should be applied twice a day, but it may be applied three or four times on the first day, to obtain quick relief. 

Before you use the ointment, gently but thoroughly wash and dry the anus (back passage) and the skin around it. 

For treatment around the anus:

  • Squeeze a small quantity (about the size of a pea) onto the top of your finger.
  • Spread it gently over the skin and just inside the anus. Do not rub it in.

For treatment inside the anus:

  • Screw the separate applicator completely onto the tube. Do not use the applicator if damaged.
  • Squeeze the tube until the applicator is full of ointment. The amount of ointment in the applicator is one dose.

  • Insert the applicator very carefully into the anus until the whole length of the applicator is inside.

  • Then, while squeezing the tube gently, withdraw the applicator.

  • After each use, clean the applicator externally with a paper towel, then remove the remaining product in the applicator with a cotton swab and clean it again with a paper towel. Rinse the applicator under warm water for about 1 minute and dry the applicator externally with paper towel.
