Haemorrhoids

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Haemorrhoids. Below is what he has to say.

Haemorrhoids, also called piles, are swollen veins located around the anus and in the lower rectum. About half of all adults have experienced haemorrhoids by the age of 50. These swollen veins can appear either inside or outside your bottom and they can be very painful, especially when those piles are external. Fortunately, relief is available and you can buy a range of effective products such as Anusol HC, Perinal, Proctofoam HC and Xyloproct from UK Meds.

Symptoms of haemorrhoids include itching, irritation and pain around the anus, especially when going to the loo, and they can make keeping clean in that area difficult too. For pain relief, try soaking in a warm bath or sitting on a hot water bottle. Try to avoid using soap to wash your bottom, because this can aggravate haemorrhoids. It's also a good idea to increase your water intake and consume foods that are high in dietary fiber to keep your stools soft and to help make haemorrhoids less likely to occur.

What is Proctofoam-HC?

It is classified as a combination medical treatment that is consumed for the treatment of the symptoms of haemorrhoids. It has two main ingredients working in it. The first is pramoxine and the other one is hydrocortisone. The medication is applied thrice daily for a total of 7 consecutive days. Only women and men above the age of 18 are prescribed to take the medication. The treatment has a two-pronged approach to treating piles. First it numbs the area by blocking pain signals emitted from the haemorrhoids to the brain. Second, it decreases or totally eliminates the inflammation.

How does Proctofoam-HC work?

One of the main ingredients of the medication, hydrocortisone acetate, prevents the body from discharging elements that cause blood streams to inflame. This action helps in the treatment of haemorrhoids. These are the ones close to the rectal opening which is a major component in defecating. Unfortunately, relief does not come instantly with this ingredient.

This is where pramoxine hydrochloride comes in. This ingredient is responsible for causing the area to become numb. It does this by stopping the piles from sending pain signals to the brain and other parts of the body. The ingredient is an anaesthetic applied in topical fashion. The pain signals travels through the nerves in impulse forms. Once the area is treated by the ingredient, it stops sending these impulses.

How to take Proctofoam-HC?

Clean and dry your hands. Clean and dry the affected portion. Squeeze a quaint amount of the medication to the applicator. Push the tip one inch inside the anus and squeeze the pusher to push the medication inside. Always make sure that the applicator is full of the foam during application.

Treatment should be done 3 times daily after defecating. This should be done for 7 consecutive days. Aside from internal use, the medication can also be applied externally. Simply apply some foam on a clean piece of tissue and wipe the area with it.

Dosages

It comes in a 21.2 g aerosol.
