Vagisan MoistCream can be used inside the vagina (with an Applicator) and on the external genital area.
- For use inside the vagina, fill the Applicator one-half full with the cream and apply inside the vagina, preferably before going to bed. It can be used once a day or less often (such as 2–3 x per week), depending on individual symptoms. We recommend wearing a panty liner when using this product.
