Xyloproct is a popular piles ointment that can reduce the symptoms immediately. Used to treat internal haemorrhoids, Xyloproct is to be used as a short-term treatment to alleviate any pain or itching piles can cause.
Xyloproct contains lidocaine, hydrocortisone and zinc oxide. Lidocaine numbs the area where it's applied, whether that is internally or externally, by stopping nerve impulses from the area travelling along nerve fibres. This action helps limit discomfort caused by piles significantly, while hydrocortisone targets inflamed areas.
Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid, which is a natural steroid that stops the action of chemicals released by the immune system in response to irritation. These chemicals can cause inflammation of blood vessels, which is essentially what haemorrhoids are.
Zinc oxide, which is found in treatments such as Calamine lotion and has antibacterial qualities, also helps to sooth irritated areas.
Xyloproct is a proven treatment that can be used in cases where haemorrhoid symptoms are causing discomfort. It contains ingredients that act to reduce immediate discomfort, reduce the risk of infection and minimise inflammation, thereby aiding recovery.
Xyloproct can be applied rectally and externally several times a day. You should also always ensure to wash your hands before using Xyloproct ointment, and also make sure that the affected area is clean.
This treatment is only intended for short-term use, so if your symptoms don't clear up within a week, it's advisable to speak to your doctor.
Xyloproct ointment comes in one standard dose of 20g. The quantities of ingredients in each dose have been developed by the manufacturer in order to maximise potency, whilst also minimising potential side effects.
Since this treatment is only applied externally and rectally, it's not likely to cause many side effects. The ingredients in this medication are also usually well tolerated during short-term use. However, if side effects do occur they mostly tend to manifest as irritation of the application area.
Should you start to experience any serious reactions or experience any pain or bleeding of the back passage, it's extremely important to see your doctor.
Most adults can use this haemorrhoid treatment safely, without a particularly high risk of side effects, but it's not advised to use this medication if:
