Allow the pump to fully reflate before administering consecutive sprays.
Immediately after administration, use a moist paper towel or tissue to clean the tip of the pump. Wash your hands after administration of OroCAM.
If OroCAM is not used for 2 or more days, re-prime the pump by spraying into a tissue one or more times until a fine mist appears.
