Anugesic-HC cream and suppositories contain a number of ingredients which are useful in the relief of symptoms associated with haemorrhoids and other local skin irritations in the anal area.
Pramocaine hydrochloride is a local anaesthetic which blocks pain messages that are sent along nerve endings. It acts on the affected area to relieve the pain and itching associated with these conditions.
Hydrocortisone acetate is used to reduce the inflammation associated with these conditions. Irritation of the skin or membrane causes the release of substances that dilate blood vessels causing the area to become red, swollen and painful. As the medicine is absorbed it inhibits the action of these substances allowing the blood vessels to return to their normal size, hence reducing the discomfort.
Benzyl benzoate, bismuth oxide, balsam peru and zinc oxide have mild antiseptic, protective and astringent properties(ie. constricts blood vessels). Balsam peru is also believed to promote the growth of new skin cells.
Active Ingriedents are Benzyl benzoate, bismuth oxide, hydrocortisone acetate, balsam peru, pramocaine hydrochloride, zinc oxide
