How Proctosedyl works

The ointments and suppositories contain both cinchocaine as well as hydrocortisone. The cinchocaine is a type of local aneasthetic, which essentially blocks nerve messages from the area where pain is experienced from being relayed. Using cinchocaine can therefore offer immediate relief from haemorrhoidal itching and pain.

The second ingredient, hydrocortisone is a natural steroid and therefore aids to stop inflammation. Inflammation of blood vessels in the back passage is what causes the most noticeable pile symptoms and happens as a result of pressure. This pressure causes irritation and this irritation stimulates an immune response causing tissues to become inflamed. Hydrocortisone stops the release of these chemicals by the immune system.

Who can use it?

Most patients over the age of 18 can use this medication if they require relief from the symptoms of haemorrhoids, although it will not be prescribed to you if you are allergic to the active ingredients in this medicine or you are currently experiencing severe bleeding from the anus. As this treatment contains a steroid, it may not be recommended to you if you have an existing bacterial, fungal or viral infection.

When ordering this online with us, make sure that you complete the consultation form as thoroughly as possible, so that our doctor can have an accurate indication of your current health in order to make the most appropriate recommendation for you.

Using Proctosedyl ointment and suppositories

The ointment can be applied externally as well as internally, with the help of a specially designed nozzle. The treatment should be administered once in the morning and once in the evening after a bowel movement. This is also the case with the suppository medication, although it's only used for internal symptoms. Before using any of the treatments you should ensure that the area of application and your hands have been thoroughly washed.

These medicines should not be used for longer than seven days, so if you haven't noticed any improvement within this time frame, you should speak to your doctor.

The possible side effects

This treatment rarely causes side effects and if they do occur they are mostly localised to the area of application. These effects may include mild irritation or a temporary tingling sensation, which should go away. However, if these side effects persist or you develop anything more concerning, you should seek medical help.
