Anusol cream is a treatment for piles or haemorrhoids which can be used to help relieve symptoms of swelling, itching, or irritation. You can use Anusol cream for both internal and external piles, meaning you’re protected whenever you need it most.
Piles, or haemorrhoids, are swellings that occur inside or around your anus which contain enlarged blood vessels. They usually don’t cause any pain but they can be itchy and may cause redness or swelling around your anus. You may also notice bleeding after a bowel movement, or a lump which hangs outside of your anus and needs to be pushed back in after you’ve been to the bathroom.
Anusol cream contains three active ingredients which work together to treat piles. The first is Zinc oxide, this works as an antiseptic which helps to reduce bacterial growth in the affected area and helps to reduce swelling. Next, we have Balsam Peru, another mild antiseptic which helps to protect your sore areas. Finally, there’s Bismuth oxide, an astringent and antiseptic which protects raw and irritated areas around your anus.
You should apply Anusol cream to the affected area at night, first thing in the morning, and after every bowel movement. Apply the cream sparingly and in an even layer. For external piles, wash and dry the affected area before gently applying the cream. For internal piles, wash and dry the affected area and then use the nozzle included to insert cream into your back passage. Wash nozzle after every use and wash your hands before and after you use Anusol cream.
