The suppository applicator is ideal for those who may find it more hygienic or convenient. It is designed to facilitate the insertion of a suppository and to prevent melting in the fingers. The applicator works equally well as a rectal or vaginal suppository applicator. It is made of plastic and is reusable.
The suppository applicator is easy to use. Remove one suppository from the strip, open by pulling the tabs apart, place the suppository firmly in the opening of the applicator, place suppository end into body cavity, and depress the plunger to insert.
If you choose to reuse the suppository applicator, be sure to clean it after each use. To do so, remove the plunger from the tube and wash the applicator in hot, soapy water.
