Contains 2 active ingredients: Cinchocaine and Prednisolone.
Cinchocaine is a type of medicine called a local anaesthetic. It works by temporarily blocking the pathway of pain messages along nerve fibres. This numbs sensation in the area where the medicine has been applied and provides relief from pain and itching.
Prednisolone is a type of medicine called a corticosteriod and is used for reducing inflammation. It works by stopping cells from releasing substances that cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming inflamed (red, swollen, itchy and painful). When inserted into the rectum prednisolone acts locally to reduce the swelling and itching of piles.
What is it used for?
Providing short-term relief (5 to 7 days) from the symptoms of piles (haemorrhoids) and anal itching.
Scheriproct suppositories are more suitable for treating internal piles. Scheriproct ointment can be applied to the anal area to relieve external piles and can also be inserted into the back passage using the applicator to relieve internal piles.
