Hemorrhoids help

I'm using proctosedyl ointment and I've been asked by the doc to insert in rectum. Once I did this, it says to wash the nozzle with warm water and soap, but I still have some of the ointment in the nozzle. Should it be all out before I insert it again?

Re: Hemorrhoids help

It probably would be best to try and clean the nozzle fully.
Germs might build up in the left over ointment.
Try using a needle or something sharp pointed or soak in hot water to see if it dislodges itself.
Hope this helps
