More information about Ultraproct
Ultraproct is an effective treatment for haemorrhoids. Using Ultraproct can help relieve symptoms such as itching and pain to aid recovery. This treatment works in two ways, firstly, it provides immediate relief by numbing the affected areas and secondly, it reduces swelling of inflamed blood vessels.
This haemorrhoid treatment is available in both suppository and ointment form. However, though it will reduce swelling, the initial cause should also be addressed, which in most cases is constipation.
The active ingredient in Ultraproct is fluocortolone (a corticosteroid). This is a type of natural steroid that works to reduce inflammation. The inflammation associated with haemorrhoids is caused by pressure on the blood vessels in the back passage. If skin tissues are irritated, the immune system releases chemicals that cause blood vessels to swell, but fluocortolone limits their effectiveness, thus reducing inflammation.
One of the active ingredients, cinchocaine, is a type of local anaesthetic which helps to numb the region affected, this in turn relieves pain and itching.
Fluocortolone on the other hand is a type of corticosteroid which helps to reduce inflammation. By reducing the chemical substances that cause inflammation there is less irritation allowing piles to reduce naturally. Likewise when inserted in the rectum, the treatment goes to work on irritation in the afflicted area.
Ultraproct can be used to alleviate pain and itching associated with piles. It not only works to numb the affected area but also acts to reduce swelling, which can aid recovery. It's a short-term treatment that comes in the form of an ointment or suppository, which means it's unlikely to cause side effects and usually produces results within a few days of use.
The ointment version of this treatment can be applied externally as well as rectally with the help of an applicator nozzle. This should be one twice daily and once daily once symptoms have cleared up.
For external haemorrhoids - the area around the anus
For internal haemorrhoids - to be used inside the anus
If you are only experiencing internal symptoms, the suppository treatment may be all that is required. This should be applied once a day, but in the initial stages of treatment you could use it between three to four days in a row. With both types of treatment, it should not be continued for more than seven days, so if symptoms persist beyond this point, you should speak to your doctor.
Some people prefer to use the suppositories for direct application to the site of the piles. Instructions on how to use a suppository are below:
Ultraproct comes in two different dosages, depending on what form of delivery you opt for. If you prefer ointment, you should expect a 30g tube, and for an Ultraproct suppository the quantity is 1mg.
All Ultraproct dosages have been specifically formulated by the manufacturer to maximise efficiency whilst minimising potential side effects.
Side effects are uncommon with this haemorrhoid treatment as it is only used for a short time and is not taken orally. However, adverse effects may include:
If they occur, these side effects should lessen with time. However, if symptoms do persist, then you should contact your doctor to discuss alternative treatments.
