For best results, only use enough paste to coat the lesion with a thin film. Do not rub in. Depending on severity of symptoms, two or three applications per day may be required, preferably after meals. The paste should be applied at bedtime to allow contact with the lesion throughout the night. If symptoms do not improve in seven days, patients should seek further medical advice.
