Re: Topical cream for anal skin irritation
I'm sorry. I misunderstood your original question. You should not put anything "inside" where the suppository goes. The medicine contained in it needs to absorb into those tissues, so coating them with a barrier salve would be counterproductive. When I read your question, I thought you meant the suppository is irritating the external skin, which is the only place you should apply the salve or Vaseline.
If you have internal irritation from the suppository, perhaps a call to the prescribing doctor or pharmacist is in order.
