  • If you got the cream, then you need to wait otherwise it will leak out while standing or sitting rather than staying in place when you are laying down. Next time get the one designed for day use

  • it's better to do it before bed bc you will be laying down and it won't have as much chance to leak out

  • It is best to do it at bedtime because of the "leaking" that occurs, but you can spread the cream on the outer parts to help with the itching.

  • It is better before bed because you keep as much as the medicine as possible inside of you for as long as possible.

  • I never wait, and never had a problem.
