Suppositories Relief For Haemorrhoids – 12
Anusol suppositories work to treat symptoms of internal piles or haemorrhoids, including itching or swelling in the area inside and around your anus. They also help to provide protection for raw parts of the affected area.
The active ingredients and how they work
Each 2.8g suppository contains:
- Zinc Oxide PhEur 296 mg
- Bismuth Subgallate BP 1980 59 mg
- Balsam Peru PhEur 49 mg
- Bismuth Oxide 24 mg
Bismuth salts are used for their protective effect on the lining of the anal area, offering some protection from faecal matter and bacteria and allowing healing to take place. They also reduce haemorrhoidal swelling, helping to prevent further damage and easing the condition.
Why do I have piles (also known as haemorrhoids)?
The exact cause of piles, or haemorrhoids, is unknown but one of the most common things thought to cause piles is straining on the toilet. This happens when you’re feeling constipated and try to pass a bowel movement. During pregnancy, you may also get piles as your growing baby places increased pressure on your anal vessels.
How to use Anusol suppositories.
Wash and dry the affected area with a soft towel before using Anusol suppositories. Remove the suppository from its plastic cover and insert into your back passage, making sure it is far enough inside that it will not slip out. Insert one Anusol suppository at night, one first thing in the morning, and one after every bowel movement.
When should Anusol suppositories not be used?
Anusol suppositories should not be used by those under the age of 18. Do not use Anusol suppositories if you are allergic to this product or any of the listed ingredients. If you have rectal bleeding, blood in the stool, or are unsure whether any bleeding you are experiencing is caused by piles, speak to your doctor before using Anusol suppositories.
