About Proctosedyl Ointment
NO PRESCRIPTION NECESSARY. DELIVERY TO YOUR DOOR.
The active ingredient, Cinchocaine belongs to a group of medicines called local anaesthetics. These medicines work by blocking the pain messages along the nerve fibres at the point of application. This prevents the pain signals from reaching the brain. This will cause a numbing sensation in the area where the ointment has been applied. When treating Haemorrhoids, using a local anaesthetic such as Cinchocaine will numb the pain and itching associated with piles.
The other active ingredient, Hydrocortisone belongs to a category of medicines known as Corticosteroids. These medicines work to reduce and relieve pain and inflammation. Inflammation is caused by an immune response that causes blood vessels to dilate (widen), resulting in the affected area becoming red, painful, itchy and swollen. Hydrocortisone works from within the cell. It actively reduces the substances produced that trigger the inflammation. When Hydrocortisone is used topically to treat Haemorrhoids, it will effectively reduce the painful inflammation and swelling caused by this condition. Proctosedyl Ointment is suitable for treating external haemorrhoids around the anal area through direct application. In case of internal Haemorrhoids, the ointment can still be applied by using the plastic applicator included with every tube. This applicator or nozzle screws onto the top of the tube, allowing for comfortable insertion into the rectum.
