I am no expert, but this is what I do.

I put small amounts of the cream (0.075% strength) on a cotton bud and rub it into the following areas, all on the cluster side:

1) Temple (including area covered by my hair).

2) Along the top of my eyebrow and down the side of my nose.

3) Rear cluster side of my neck, along the muscle on that side.

4) The bottom and outer part of my nostril. NOT VERY FAR UP-NO FURTHER THAN 1CM PAST THE OPENING.

I started applying it 3-4 times a day when I first started, and did not initially put it up my nose. However, I built up enough courage to do so and was surprised to find out that it was only a mild burning sensation which, incidentally, lessened with each application.

I now apply it about 2-3 times a day and hope to reduce it soon to 1-2 times a day.

Hope this is of use you.

Best Wishes,


P.S. Sorry for the delay in replying, Ive been out all day!
