Don't worry.: Use the anusol cream as long as you have the inflammation. The steroid content is negligible.

Daily: Apply the cream daily. If you have a bowel movement then do a sitz bath then the cream. This should minimize the itch. Hopefully the duration of treatment is less than a week. In general if you treat yourself for a week and notice no improvement then see your doctor. Hope this helps.
