Proctofoam is another option if cortifoam isnt available. You might be scratching it with the nozzle tip, but Im suspecting this flare needs more continual care and has progressed and will settle with continual use of the change in meds. As
As well, if you were on nightly enemas 4g, and dropped to a different lower dosage med, that could be why the change in symptoms. As well, the scope might have caused a slight worsening.
Were you off the rectal meds when you were on holiday?
Did the doc say you had inflammation higher than the 3cm....but more severe at the 0 - 3 cm?
Where your flare is limited...it can be the most difficult to treat and heal. I would say give this regimen a fair go and decide whether or not going up the med scale if it doesn't improve.
