Proctosedyl general information

What is Proctosedyl used for?

Proctosedyl ointment is a topical treatment for haemorrhoids commonly known as piles (both external and internal), also for other painful conditions of the rectum such as rectal fissures (tears), anal pruritus (itching) and perianal eczema. Proctosedyl ointment reduces the pain, swelling and muscle spasm caused by haemorrhoids and other rectal lesions.

How does Proctosedyl work?

Proctosedyl ointment contains a combination of two medications that are used together as a topical treatment for haemorrhoids. Cinchocaine is a local anaesthetic with analgesic properties (pain relieving) and also relaxes spasm of the anal sphincter. Hydrocortisone is low potency corticosteroid that reduces inflammation and itching, and this reduces discharge. These two medications work together to numb the pain, reduce the swelling and relieve the itching associated with haemorrhoids and other rectal lesions.

What does Proctosedyl contain?

Proctosedyl ointment contains a combination of two active ingredients, cinchocaine hydrochloride 0.5% and hydrocortisone 0.5%, which act together to relive symptoms of haemorrhoids. It also contains: liquid paraffin, white soft paraffin and wool fat.
