PROCTOSEDYL SUPPOSITORIES 12S
PROCTOSEDYL SUPPOSITORIES contains two active ingredients; Cinchocaine Hydrochloride and Hydrocortisone. It is mainly used to treat Haemorrhoids (piles). Cinchocaine works by blocking the pain messages along the nerve fibres at the point of application. This prevents the pain signals from reaching the brain. This will cause a numbing sensation in the area where the ointment has been applied. Using proctosedyl ointment will numb the pain and itching associated with piles. Hydrocortisone works to reduce and relieve pain and inflammation. Inflammation is caused by an immune response that causes blood vessels to widen, resulting in the affected area becoming red, painful, itchy and swollen. Hydrocortisone works from within the cell. It actively reduces the substances produced that trigger the inflammation. When Hydrocortisone is used topically to treat Haemorrhoids, it will effectively reduce the pain and swelling caused by this condition.
When combined in Proctosedyl Suppositories, these two active ingredients provide effective short-term relief for the treatment and management of piles and anal itching.
One suppository to be inserted at night.
