What is Anusol HC?

Anusol HC is one of the most popular and prescribed treatments for haemorrhoids (piles) due to its incredible effectiveness. This is a prescription-only strength ointment version of Anusol Cream. Anusol HC contains hydrocortisone and is much more effective than an over-the-counter version. It can be used to treatment both internal and external piles, as well as minor pain, anal itching, swelling and discomfort.

How does Anusol HC work?

The active ingredient in Anusol HC is a type of organic steroid called hydrocortisone acetate, which reduces inflammation. The ingredient works at limiting chemicals released by the body’s immune system, especially during irritation, such as due to a blockage in the bloodstream within the anal region.

There are other very important components to Anusol HC, such as Hydrocortisone acetate, Bismuth Oxide, Bismuth Subgallate, Peru Balsam and Zinc Oxide. These are the astringent and antiseptic parts of Anusol, imperative for keeping inflammation down and reducing the chance of infections developing.

How to use Anusol HC

Anusol HC is for topical use only. Which means it is applied directly to the affected area.

• Wash the anal area and dry gently with a soft towel before using this medicine.
• There is a nozzle supplied with the product which can be used to apply the ointment into the back passage (anus).
• For external piles – after washing and drying the affected area, the ointment should be applied using a gauze dressing.
• For internal piles – after washing and drying the affected area, screw the nozzle provided onto the tube, remove the nozzle cap; insert the nozzle into the back passage and squeeze gently. Clean the nozzle after each use.
• Wash your hands before and after using Anusol.

Children (under 18 years): This medicine is not recommended for children under 18 years old.

Adults and the elderly: Apply sparingly to the affected area. You should use as often as prescribed by your doctor, however Anusol HC Ointment is usually used at night, in the morning and after each bowel movement.
