Hello -- Ever since my initial j-pouch surgery in 1998 I've had chronic anal pain/pressure/burning.  When I"m really uncomfortable I've been using a lidocaine/hydrocortisone combination that comes in single use tubes (7 grams each).  They save me -- hit the exact spot perfectly.  I last bought some a year ago and now I can't find them anywhere.  Have contacted every local pharmacy I can think of.  I can't tell if they're discontinued or temporarily unavailable.  I can mix or buy the same combination but I don't know how to insert it without the single use little applicators.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much,

Debbie (aka scallop(

Thank you.  The beauty of the stuff I like is the applicator.  The cream comes in individual servings (doses?) and the applicator has little holes along its length so the medication comes out along a short distance.  It's like magic -- stops the pain dead in its tracks. 

I've contacted the manufacturer and they are completely baffled about the unavailability.  Someone very nice at the company is working on this.  I will update if I find it.

Happy new year to all!

Please keep us posted about this item, I think a lot of us would be interested in it also.

Happy New Year to you also!

Finally, finally I got my cream kits!  It took a lot of work -- I ultimately called the manufacturer and they were shocked that all of my local pharmacies claimed they couldn't get them.  A rep from the manufacturer (Seton) called both the distributor used by my local CVS (McKesson) and the pharmacy.   Then, after I pestered the pharmacy for 2 more weeks, I finally got it!  Note -- it was not covered by my insurance -- $43 for a box of 20 but I don't use them that often.  They are life savers when I need them.  NDC #: 13925-165-20.  Make sure you ask for a box of cream kits rather than a single tube so you get the right applicator.
