The cream can be applied externally. If it is the cream in the applicator, you insert it into the vagina and use the whole tube.

Best wishes

Check the EXPIRY date on the tube before you commence treatment.

Eat lots of yoghurt and have yourself tested for sugar diabetes.

If you have the cream, it is applied to the vaginal area. Just put it on the outside of the opening etc.

But I found that using the tablet worked better in conjuction with the cream. The tablet is inserting into your vagina with an applicator and then you apply the cream to the outer area.
