Anusol Cream & Suppositories
Anusol is used to treat haemorrhoids or more commonly known as piles. Anusol is readily available in cream, ointment and Anusol suppositories. Haemorrhoids start off as a small blood-filled swelling which on many occasions can lie undetected. By either constipation or excessive straining when using the toilet the piles become enlarged causing them to become visible and painful.
Both Anusol ointment and Anusol cream can be used for internal and external haemorrhoids were as Anusol suppositories are used to treat internal piles. Anusol can also be used for inflammation of the rectum and itching around the back passage as well as treating piles.
Anusol contains Zinc Oxide, Bismuth Oxide and Balsam Peru which acts as a mild antiseptic providing relief from pain, provides soothing and reduces swellings. The astringent and antiseptic properties also protect raw, irritated skin around the anal area thus encouraging the skin to heal and repair.
Anusol cream, Anusol ointment and Anusol suppositories can be used to treat and relieve mild to moderate piles. Anusol plus ointment and Anusol plus suppositories are used to treat and relieve more painful and troublesome. If you unsure if you have piles or not or unsure which treatment is best for you please speak with your doctor.
