Preparation H haemorrhoid ointment is a treatment for piles and haemorrhoids which works to cool and soothe your dry and sore skin. It also works as a lubricant, helping your bowel movements to go more smoothly and less painfully.
Haemorrhoids are commonly known as piles, and they are enlarged blood vessels located inside or around your rectal area. They are usually painless, and you may not know that they are there, but they can cause discomfort when you use the bathroom and may be accompanied by dry and itchy skin.
Preparation H haemorrhoid ointment helps to treat piles by providing a coating on the affected area. This acts as a lubricant, helping your bowel movements to happen without pain or discomfort. It also works to cool and soothe sore skin that happens when you have piles.
Apply Preparation H haemorrhoid ointment whenever you are feeling discomfort in the affected area. Preparation H haemorrhoid ointment should also be applied after each bowel movement. If your symptoms continue or get worse while using Preparation H haemorrhoid ointment, contact your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist.
