How does Xyloproct work?

Xyloproct contains the three main ingredients, lidocaine, hydrocortisone and zinc oxide. Lidocaine provides immediate relief from the pain and itchiness that is associated with haemorrhoids. This is because it is able to prevent the nerve signals from the area of application being relayed and registering in the brain. The numbing effect of Xyloproct is almost instantaneous but temporary.

While lidocaine gets to work almost immediately, hydrocortisone may take a little while longer to have an effect. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid, which means it helps prevent the release of chemicals that result in the swelling of irritated blood vessels in the rectum. By preventing the release of these chemicals, Xyloproct will provide relief from swelling within a few days, easing the discomfort that this causes.

The third ingredient of Xyloproct is zinc oxide, which is widely used as an anti-bacterial. This helps it soothe and calm the area, which prevents further aggravation of the swelling.

What are the benefits of Xyloproct?

This treatment contains three different active ingredients, each with a different function. This allows it to provide relief from the symptoms of haemorrhoids and the discomfort they can cause. The use of three different active ingredients allow this treatment to help reduce pain, inflammation and the risk of infection. This makes Xyloproct an effective way to manage the symptoms of haemorrhoids and the complications that can occur from this condition.

Who can use Xyloproct?

As this medication carries a very low risk of side effects, most adults are able to use Xyloproct. However, you should not use this medication if you are allergic to the active ingredients or if you have had a reaction to medication with similar ingredients. You may also not be suitable for this treatment if you have any other bacterial, viral or fungal infections, or if you are taking medication to help regulate an erratic heartbeat.

When you buy Xyloproct online at 121doc, you will be required to complete a quick medical questionnaire, which will be used by our doctors to determine whether this is the right treatment option for you. You should include as much medical information as possible so that our doctors are able to create a prescription for you.

How do you use Xyloproct?

This treatment should be applied a few times a day after bowel movements. Xyloproct will come with an applicator, so it can be used to treat the symptoms of haemorrhoids both internally and externally. You should not use this treatment for longer than seven consecutive days. If you do not see an improvement in your symptoms after this period of time, you should consult with your doctor about possible next steps.

Are there any side effects?

Xyloproct has a very low risk of side effects as it is only designed to be used for a short period of time and is a topical treatment that is applied directly on the areas that require treatment. When side effects do occur, they are usually very mild and should pass within a few days. Possible adverse reactions for Xyloproct can include a slight irritation on the area where it is applied. If you experience any pain or bleeding of the back passage, or if you experience any other serious symptoms from using Xyloproct, you should see a doctor.

How to buy Xyloproct online?

It can often be difficult finding the time to go see your doctor each time you need medication. At 121doc, you can buy Xyloproct online without a doctor's appointment or previous prescription. This means that you can get the medication you need without having to endure waiting times at your local GP surgery.

To place an order for Xyloproct, simply complete the online consultation form that makes up part of the ordering process. Once your order is completed, your medical details will be checked by our doctors to ensure that Xyloproct is the right treatment option for you. If approved, a prescription will be created for you and sent to our UK registered pharmacy from where your medication will be dispatched. We are aware that this treatment can be of significant assistance to people who are suffering from the symptoms of haemorrhoids, so we dispatch all orders via free next day delivery. All of our delivery options are discreet, with medication dispatched in a completely plain and unmarked package.
