What is Proctofoam-HC?

Proctofoam-HC is a combination medication used to effectively treat the pain and discomfort associated with haemorrhoids. Proctofoam contains the two active ingredients, hydrocortisone and pramoxine, and is used 3 times a day for 7 days in total. Both men and women over the age of 18 with haemorrhoids can use this treatment. Proctofoam essentially works by reducing skin inflammation, as well as decreasing pain within the affected area.

How does Proctofoam HC work?

Proctofoam contains hydrocortisone acetate, a corticosteroid, which prevents your body from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation of blood vessels. This is very helpful in the treatment of haemorrhoids as they are essentially caused as a result of inflamed vascular structures that line in the rectum and play a part in controlling bowel movements.

However, corticosteroids don't always provide relief straight away, which is why the addition of pramocaine hydrochloride is helpful in numbing the affected area. This means that itching and any pain experienced is reduced. Pramocaine is a type of topical anaesthetic that essentially blocks nerve impulses from the area of application from being relayed along nerve fibres to register in the brain as a particular sensation.

What are the benefits of using Proctofoam-HC?

Proctofoam is a convenient foam treatment that works in two ways to provide you with relief from the symptoms of piles, while also aiding natural recovery. This is because it contains a local anaesthetic to provide almost instant relief from itching, but also a natural steroid that can help reduce swelling of blood vessels.

How to use Proctofoam-HC

Proctofoam-HC is available in to buy from HealthExpress in a dosage of 21.2g and is applied with a special applicator into the rectum.[1]

  • Ensure the affected area is cleaned and dried carefully
  • Fill the applicator and then insert the tip about an inch inside the anus and press the plunger to release the medicated foam
  • One 'applicator full' should be applied 3-4 times a day after each bowel movement
  • It should not be applied more than four times a day
  • Treatment should not be continued for more than 7 days without speaking to a doctor
  • To apply the foam to external haemorrhoids simply spray some of the foam on a clean tissue and pat the area gently

Ensure your hands are washed thoroughly after use and that none of the medication gets in your eyes or mouth. If this does occur, then ensure you wash it out as soon as possible and seek medical help if any adverse effects occur.

Precautions/interactions when using Proctofoam-HC

Most adults over the age of 18 with haemorrhoids can use Proctofoam-HC safely, provided they aren't allergic to any of the active ingredients - hydrocortisone and pramoxine. Before using Proctofoam-HC, there are a number of precautions that should be considered to ensure your safety.

  • This medication should also not be used if you have a bacterial infection in the affected area
  • To avoid any complications, make sure that you mention to your doctor if you are pregnant, have ever experienced rectal complications or suffer from severe depression or have a family history of depression
  • This medication is strictly not recommended for children
  • Prolonged usage of Proctofoam-HC should be avoided
  • This treatment shouldn't be used on easily damaged skin
  • Do not use this medication if you are already using immunosuppressives such as fingolimod

What are the side effects of Proctofoam-HC?

Side effects of this treatment are extremely rare, but can occur when using prescription medication. Due to the topical nature of this treatment, it is unlikely to cause any major side effects. The common side effects may include:

  • Irritation at the application site
  • A stinging or burning sensation
  • Thinning of the skin in the area of application

You should mention to your doctor if you feel anxious or depressed as a result of this treatment, or if you experience anything more serious or worrying.
