Hand/ Body Cream

The issue: mema’rei’ach/ smoothing, refuah/ healing

 

The solution: If one is experiencing only a minor discomfort one may not medicate. If one was in a very uncomfortable situation there would be no issue of medicating. However, due to the issue of smoothing, the best method to go about anointing oneself is to apply the cream and rub it in in an abnormal fashion.
