Ultraproct is an ointment which can quickly and effectively relieve the symptoms of haemorrhoids (piles) and anal itching.
It should be applied once the morning, once in the evening, and once after each time the bowels are opened. In some cases, it may be necessary to increase the dosage to four times per day.
Ultraproct is a short-term haemorrhoid treatment, and should be used for no more than one week. Consult your GP if you require Ultraproct for more than seven days. They may advise that you reduce the number of times you apply each day.
Haemorrhoids occur when varicose veins form in or around the rectum. They often result from high pressure in local blood vessels. Ultraproct contains two active ingredients which together reduce the pain, swelling and itching caused by haemorrhoids and other similar conditions.
The local anaesthetic used in Ultraproct is called Cinchocaine. It reduces the feeling of pain by blocking nerve endings from relaying pain messages to the brain. It also relaxes the activity of the anal sphincter.
Fluocortolone is a corticosteroid. It is an anti-inflammatory medicine. Generally, inflammation occurs when certain substances which are important to the immune system are released. As a result, blood vessels expand, which causes swelling, redness and pain in the affected area. Fluocortolone prevents these substances from initially being produced. When used in and around the rectum, fluocortolone reduces any swelling or itching caused by haemorrhoids. Ultraproct contains two varieties of fluocortolone. These take effect at different times, providing longer relief.
Alternate OTC (over the counter) Medication
There are many OTC medicines available from ourselves and your local pharmacy to buy, these may be all you need, so you should try these first before moving onto a prescription only medications, here is a list of a couple that are commonly stocked.
Ultraproct should be applied twice daily, plus once each time the bowels are opened. Thoroughly wash both your hands and the affected area before application.
For external use, squeeze a small amount of ointment out of the tube and rub it into the skin around the anus.
For internal use, a nozzle is provided. Gently insert the tip of the nozzle into the anus, and squeeze the tube such that a small amount of ointment is released. Withdraw the nozzle carefully, then use warm water to thoroughly wash both the nozzle and your hands.
After one week of this routine, Ultraproct should be used once every other day for a further week.
