Description

What is Proctosedyl and what is it used for?

Proctosedyl Ointment is a dual-action formula containing two active ingredients; Cinchocaine Hydrochloride and Hydrocortisone. It is mainly used to treat internal and external Haemorrhoids (piles) helping to relieve pain, discomfort and itching as well as reducing the physical size of the piles themselves.

Proctosedyl Ointment is suitable for treating external haemorrhoids around the anal area through direct application. If the Haemorrhoids are internal, the ointment can still be applied by using the plastic applicator included with every tube. This applicator or nozzle screws onto the top of the tube, allowing for comfortable insertion into the rectum.

How does Proctosedyl work?

The first active ingredient contained in Proctosedyl ointment, Cinchocaine belongs to a group of medicines called local anaesthetics. These medicines work 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.

The other active ingredient, Hydrocortisone belongs to a category of medicines known as Corticosteroids. These medicines work to reduce and relieve pain and inflammation. Inflammation is caused by an immune response that causes blood vessels to dilate, resulting in the affected area becoming red, painful, itchy and swollen.

Hydrocortisone works from within the cell, actively reducing the substances that trigger the inflammation. When Hydrocortisone is used topically to treat Haemorrhoids, it will effectively reduce the painful inflammation and swelling caused by this condition.
