- This product is currently unavailable.
What are Anusol suppositories used for ? Anusol suppositories provide relief for internal haemorrhoids (piles) and other related ano-rectal conditions. Piles are swollen blood vessels inside the anus which can produce varying degrees of discomfort, itch and irritation, particularly during and just after a bowel movement. The soothing action of Anusol suppositories combats the symptoms of internal piles while their antiseptic properties help to reduce inflammation and assist healing. What do the active ingredients of Anusol do? Bismuth salts are used for their protective effect on the lining of the anal area, offering some protection from faecal matter and bacteria and allowing healing to take place. They also reduce haemorrhoidal swelling, helping to prevent further damage and easing the condition. Zinc oxide acts as an absorbent which reduces skin moisture and friction and discourages certain bacteria from growing. It also has astringent properties which helps to reduce haemorrhoidal swelling. Zinc oxide helps to protect raw, irritated areas, and reduce itching. Balsam Peru is an antiseptic which relieves inflammation and promotes healing. Piles are caused by a number of different factors. Before using Anusol suppositories - Have you ever had a reaction to Anusol, any of its ingredients or other similar products? - Do you have any rectal bleeding ? (Although bleeding, shown as streaks of blood on toilet paper, is not uncommon in people with piles, it may be a sign of a more serious condition and you should see your doctor to check this). Are you going to use Anusol suppositories to treat a child? Anusol suppositories are not recommended for children.
