What is Preparation H Haemorrhoid Ointment?

Preparation H Haemorrhoid ointment is a treatment used to relieve the symptoms of haemorrhoids (piles) by helping to shrink tissues that have been swollen by inflammation. Preparation H Haemorrhoid ointment also acts as a lubricant to help ease painful bowel movements.

What are Haemorrhoids (piles)?

Haemorrhoids (commonly known as piles) are swellings containing enlarged blood vessels that are located in or around your anal/rectal area. In most cases, haemorrhoids don’t cause any symptoms and some people may not even realise that they have them. However, symptoms that can be caused by haemorrhoids include:

  • Bleeding after passing a stool (poo)
  • An itchy or painful anus (bottom)
  • Still feeling like you need to pass a stool after going to the toilet.
  • Lumps and swelling around the anus
  • Mucus discharge after passing a stool

How does Preparation H Haemorrhoid Ointment help to treat piles?

Preparation H Haemorrhoid Ointment helps to treat symptoms of haemorrhoids by:

  • Soothing itching
  • Relieving pain around the anus
  • Reducing soreness and swelling
  • Lubricating the anorectal area (bottom) to help ease painful bowel movements

How to use Preparation H Haemorrhoid Ointment

Preparation H Haemorrhoid Ointment can be applied freely to the affected area whenever you feel discomfort. Apply to the anal area in the morning and at night and after each bowel movement throughout the day. For best results, continue to use Preparation H Haemorrhoid Ointment for a few days after discomfort has been relieved. If symptoms persist for more than 7 days after use or regularly reoccur, seek advice from your GP or a Chemist 4 U pharmacist. Preparation H Haemorrhoid ointment is only suitable for external/intrarectal use. Preparation H Ointment contains natural active ingredients and is suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding. 

When should Preparation H haemorrhoid ointment NOT be used?
