Thanks Dr A-
I have never warmed it but it is not cold. I may just try again - I use another water soluable ointment - AYR - about same thing as A & D. Never seemed to have a problem with getting it in if I could only REACH that area with arthritis pain, etc. Another reason to lose weight!! Do you think that if I tried it again it would get better - feel better - after several. I have always had more symptoms the more I use - any kind of rectal meds as in more pain, more cramping, more blood and more mucous. (and that gets better when I stop the enemas, suppositories, foam, etc.) The longest I have tried was 10 days one time and the last few were horrible.
