Anusol ointment is a treatment for piles or haemorrhoids which is used directly on the affected area to soothe symptoms of irritation and itching. It also helps to provide protection to sore areas, stopping bacteria from growing and providing relief when you need it most.
Ointment is very similar to creams, but differ in their consistency and feel. Because they’re a tad greasier, you may find they help relieve sore, dry skin, too.
Anusol™ Ointment is for topical use only, which means it is applied directly to the affected area. To use, simply rub the ointment directly onto the outside of your anus. Anusol™ Ointment also has lubricating properties for use alongside suppositories.
The Anusol™ range also includes Soothing Relief Ointment with hydrocortisone to help reduce inflammation.
How to use
Before using Anusol ointment, be sure to wash and dry the affected area thoroughly. For external piles, apply the ointment using a gauze dressing. For internal piles, screw the included nozzle onto the tube of ointment and use it to insert a little ointment into your back passage. Clean the nozzle after each use and wash your hands before and after using Anusol.
