I've been prescribed some
Medication to treat a bacterial infection "down there" and it come with an applicator that I would have to insert - does anyone know if this is safe to use while I'm 22 weeks pregnant?

I don't see why it wouldn't be ok, especially if you get a fresh applicator each time. I had to use thrush medication which was inserted using a fresh applicator each day for three days.

Yes my OB said it's totally fine. Just don't be reckless and push it in really far.

the pharmasist told me not to use the aplicator but to insert the pessaries with my finger

I was told not to when I was pregnant, but I had placenta preavia.
Not sure if that had anything to do with him telling me not to use it though.

I used an applicator whilst about 22 weeks preg. That was for thrush treatment though.

i had thrush while pregnant and got cream with applicators but the info in the box said not to use the appliactors while pregnant so (after asking a middie) i did as well as i could with gloved fingers

you should be fine to use the applicator as long as you dont insert it as far as you would if you werent pregnant.
