This could get messy so don't read on if you are slightly squeamish!
I am bemused about the design of some pharmaceutical products.
I was a bit under the weather last weekend which resulted in me being constipated. I eventually had a "break through" but it left my bum more than a bit sore.
Being a man I worked through the pain (so to speak) but it hasn't gone away and I finally resigned myself to going to Boots for some sort of remedy.
I found an ointment and a spray, and also being a man decided to buy both "just in case".
Now the ointment I can figure out for myself. You put some on your finger and then stick your finger where it hurts. So why include an optional long nozzle? I am not likely to stick the tube up my bum just to get the cream to the area that is sore - that would seem like a path leading to "over-dispensing".
Now we turn to the spray. Here I was expecting something that allowed fine control, but no - what you get is a small pump-action bottle akin to an old fashioned breath freshener. How does that help me. I would need a mirror and a third hand just to get close to spraying in the right direction! A better design would be surely something like a Sinex nose spray. Then at least you are fairly confident that your are spraying in the right direction!
