Unfortunately Anugesic HC is currently unavailable to buy, but our online doctors can prescribe you Anusol HC as an alternative treatment. Anusol HC is a haemorrhoid cream which is used and effective in the same way as Anugesic HC, although there is a slight difference in ingredients. You can find out more about Anusol HC here.

How it works

One of the main ingredients in this treatment is hydrocotisone acitate and it's a corticosteroid, a natural type of steroid. It benefits recovery from haemorrhoids and minimises discomfort by preventing the release of chemicals that cause inflammation. This inflammation is usually the result of pressure that has been placed on the blood vessels in the back passage, which is why the actual causes of the initial irritation should be established. Normally it's related to constipation, so adding more fibre to your diet can be very beneficial.

Apart from steroids, Anusol-HC also contains bismuth oxide, bismuth subgallate, Peru balsam and Zinc oxide, which are all compounds known for their mild astringent and antiseptic effects. Astringents are also able to aid the shrinkage of inflamed and painful blood vessels to speed up recovery.

Who can use it?

Anusol-HC, although not recommended to be used by children, can be used by most adults. However, it is not advised if you have an allergy to the active ingredients in this treatment. You should also not use this medication if you have a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. If you are experiencing severe rectal bleeding or pain, you should speak to you doctor first, before attempting to use this.

Using Anusol-HC ointment or suppositories

This ointment is intended for the treatment of external as well as internal symptoms and can be applied rectally with the help of a special nozzle. The treatment should be applied twice a day after a bowel movement and shouldn't be continued for longer than seven days, unless you've been advised otherwise by your doctor. Similarly the suppositories should be inserted twice a day after a bowel movement, although this is mainly intended for haemorrhoids that have not prolapsed.

If you don't notice any improvement in your condition after using this for a few days, you should speak to your doctor who may have to do a physical examination.

The possible side effects

The side effects of this treatment aren't likely to be of a serious nature and may include rashes or irritation around the application area. These side effects shouldn't be persistent, but if they start bothering you or you develop anything more serious, you should seek immediate medical help and advice.

Buying Anusol-HC online
