The 1 cc syringes minus needle portion, smoothed makes a good applicator.
Many times the glands up near bladder opening becomes infected. These glands do not get nourishment directly from the bloodstream, they feed from adjacant tissue. This is why oral antibiotics do not clear infections of the uretha.
I am not a doctor. The above is from my personal experience.
Thanks. The Cutivate cream i was using is something called a corticosteroid. So im guessing its a steroid of some kind. Is this the same thing as an antibiotic?
Also, ive heard that medicines that are used for a long time stop working after a while, because the infection finds a way to block it. In the case of a steroid, such as the one im using, is it possible to stop use for a while and then go back in a month or so and it will work?
