Anusol Plus HC suppositories are designed to treat internal haemorrhoids (also known as piles) and reduce any discomfort caused by this condition. Anusol Plus HC helps to relieve itching and swelling in the affected area, providing effective relief fast. Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen blood vessels which can be found around or inside your anus. The cause of haemorrhoids isn’t clear, but they are associated with increased blood pressure in your blood vessels which causes swelling and inflammation. Many cases are thought to be caused by too much straining when you use the bathroom during periods of constipation.
Working: Anusol Plus HC contains a combination of active ingredients which work together to treat piles and provide relief from itching and swelling. They also discourage bacteria from growing in the affected area, protecting areas that are raw and sore.
These ingredients include: Hydrocortisone acetate
Usage: Gently wash and dry the affected area before using Anusol Plus HC suppositories, wash your hands before and after use. Remove one suppository from its plastic cover and insert it into your back passage. Make sure it’s far enough inside that it will not slip out. Insert one suppository at night, first thing in the morning, and after every bowel movement. Do not use more than 3 Anusol Plus HC suppositories a day, and do not use them for more than 7 days at a time.
