If you are suffering from pain and discomfort due to piles, proctitis, fissures, or as the result of recent rectal surgery, there are treatments available that can offer relief. When you use Anusol Ointment you can benefit from its soothing and healing properties to help ease the symptoms you are experiencing.
To prevent further aggravation, try and avoid dry toilet paper and instead use moist wipes or wet toilet paper that doesn't contain alcohol or perfume.
Anusol Ointment offers antiseptic properties that can provide soothing relief when you are experiencing pain and discomfort due to piles and other similar conditions. The ointment is able to promote healing as well as provide relief from the symptoms you are experiencing, and it is simple to apply.
The ointment is absorbed rapidly for maximum effect. It provides soothing relief and can help to shrink piles for faster healing and recovery.
It is generally applied at night, in the morning, and after each bowel movement. The treatment can also help to reduce the risk of the spread of bacteria and will help to soothe the itching that can accompany piles.
If you are looking for a moist wipe instead of dry toilet tissue, Preparation H wipes or Andrex Washlets are particularly handy and are small and discreet enough to be able to be carried anywhere.
Adults, 18 years and over:
Wash your hands before and after application of the cream.
