hi there
As the first ansa says inject the cream into the mortar how far in you go depends on the thickness of the wall,to inject into the brick you will need a high pressure injection pump and injection fluid.

If you are going to endeavour to do this as a DIY project modern thixotropic damp proofing products work better drilled into the mortar bed. You need to drill at 110mm centres to within 40mm of the inside face of the wall.
