Contains 2 active ingredients : Cinchocaine Hydrochloride and Hydrocortisone.
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 produces relief from pain and itching.
Hydrocortisone is a type of medicine called a corticosteriod and is used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen, resulting in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful. Hydrocortisone works by acting inside cells to decrease the production of these substances. When inserted into the rectum hydrocortisone acts locally to reduce the swelling and itching of piles.
What is it used for?
Short-term relief (5-7 days) of the symptoms of piles and anal itching.
