Anugesic HC helps treat and relieve the symptoms of haemorrhoids in a number of different ways. It starts to work immediately after application by numbing the area with the help of its active ingredient, pramocaine hydrochloride. Pramocaine is a local anaesthetic that stops pain impulses from being transported to the brain.
While proamocaine takes care of any immediate itching and pain, hydrocortisone works to prevent the release of chemicals by the immune system that causes swelling. It may take a few days for swelling to go down, but once it's under control, it's easier for the body to recover naturally, especially if you are taking steps to deal with the initial cause of the piles in the first place.
Anugesic HC is very safe to use in general, but there are a few instances where it is not advisable to use this treatment. You should not use this if you are allergic to the active ingredient or you have a viral, fungal or bacterial infection that your doctor is not aware of. You should be particularly wary of using this medication if you are experiencing an outbreak of genital warts.

This cream can be applied internally as well as externally with the help of a specially designed rectal nozzle. You should apply this treatment twice a day after every bowel movement.
You should not continue with this treatment for longer than seven days without speaking to a doctor.
Side effects are very rare, because it's only applied in the area where it's required and used only for short periods of time. Some of the most common side effects include mild itching or irritation in the area where it has been applied. This should go away within a few days, but if your symptoms persist, they start worrying you or you start to develop something more serious, you should speak to your doctor.
