using Procto-Foam

I'm so glad I found this board, hoping I can get some advice. I've had a fissure for several months now and after using Procto-Foam from my Dr. it improved a bit. Still there though. So he just put me on nitroglycerin ointment and immediately I got a terrible headache. Still have it. From what I can tell that's fairly normal so I'm not too concerned yet.

What I can't figure out is- do they really expect me to put that application tape on that area of my body, like tape it on?? And also, what times should I be applying it? Is it safe to use overnight? There's mention of 12 hours of nitrate-free time but nothing to really explain what to do.

Any help would be appreciated!
