How Scheriproct works

Scheriproct suppositories and ointment contain a local anaesthetic as well as a corticosteroid, prednisolone. Prednisolone prevents the release of chemicals by the immune system that cause inflammation. Inflammation of the blood vessels in the back passage is what causes some of the discomfort in patients with haemorrhoids. However, swelling can take time to go down, which is why it contains a local anaesthetic to have an immediate numbing effect.

Who can use it?

Most people who take this medication can use it safely for external as well as internal haemorrhoid symptoms, if diet and an increase in water intake haven't provided the required results. You should, however, not use this medication if you are allergic to the active ingredients. You should also avoid using this treatment if you currently have a fungal, bacterial or viral infection such as shingles or genital herpes.

If you would like to buy Scheriproct online, make sure that you complete the online consultation as thoroughly as possible. Women should take care to mention whether they are breastfeeding, pregnant or intend on becoming pregnant, as this may have a bearing on the doctor's decision.

How to use Scheriproct treatments

The ointment version can be used to provide relief from internal as well as external symptoms with the help of a specially designed nozzle. To start off, the ointment needs to be applied internally and externally, twice a day for the first day and then once a day until the infection has cleared up. For very severe and uncomfortable piles, you may choose to apply the ointment three to four times on the first day.

If you aren't displaying any noticeable external symptoms, using the suppository version should be sufficient. For the first day, the suppository can be inserted three to four times and the dosage can then be brought down to once a day. Please note that Scheriproct should not be used for longer than seven days without speaking to a doctor.

The side effects

Side effects are very rare, although some people may be more prone to them than others. Luckily they don't have a tendency to be serious and will most likely include mild irritation of the application area. Skin can become thinner if this treatment is used for too long and too liberally, which is why it's prescribed as a short-term treatment.

If any of the above mentioned effects start to bother you or you are experiencing anything worrying, you should speak to your doctor immediately.
