Anusol is an effective treatment for haemorrhoids (piles) which contains the active ingredient hydrocortisone. This medicine is available as both a topical ointment and a suppository.
Using our online clinic, you can get the treatment you need, delivered discreetly to your door. Prescription Doctor offers Anusol as an ointment or suppository.
Haemorrhoids (piles) are small lumps in or around the anus which develop due to increased pressure in the surrounding blood vessels, resulting in swelling and inflammation.
In many cases, piles are painless and clear up after a few days. Other cases may be painful and discomforting. In these instances, you should speak to your doctor about available treatments.
It is possible to be unaware of the condition, but they can cause several unpleasant symptoms including:
Diagnosis of piles is usually made based on the physical symptoms alone. For suspected internal piles, your GP may request a physical internal examination of your rectum or refer you to a colorectal specialist.
If it is the first time you are experiencing piles, or if you experience any rectal bleeding, you should see your doctor as soon as possible.
The main cause of piles is often associated with excessive pressure exerted upon the blood vessels surrounding the anal area.
There are a number of factors which contribute to the development of haemorrhoids (piles), including:
Small piles do tend to clear up on their own within a couple of days.
If your piles are painful, or if they are bleeding, speak to your doctor about the appropriate treatment for you.
Piles can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle. Eating a healthy, balanced diet, rich in fibre, can prevent constipation - a common cause of piles.
Keeping your body hydrated and exercising regularly can also prevent piles.
Anusol contains a topical corticosteroid called hydrocortisone.
When applied directly to the haemorrhoids (piles), the steroid acts upon the cells to prevent them from releasing chemicals which cause inflammation, swelling, redness and itching.
Anusol also contains other compounds which have mild antiseptic properties, such as Bismuth salts, Balsam Peru and benzyl benzoate.
When combined, the ingredients work together to combat the symptoms of piles, prevent the growth of microorganisms, and promote healing of the surrounding tissues in the affected area.
Anusol ointment can be used both externally and internally, using the provided applicator nozzle. Anusol suppositories are intended for internal piles only.
Always follow the advice from the doctor regarding how often you should use Anusol.
Before applying Anusol ointment, wash the anal area and gently dry with a soft towel.
For external piles, the ointment should be applied with a gauze dressing. Use Anusol conservatively to ensure you have enough medicine and reduce your risk of experiencing side effects. Speak to your pharmacist about applying a gauze dressing with Anusol ointment.
For internal use, screw on the supplied applicator nozzle and remove the nozzle cap. Gently insert the nozzle into the anus and squeeze gently. Clean the nozzle after every application.
For suppositories, remove the plastic cover from the suppository and insert it into the rectum. The suppository will melt after insertion.
Always wash your hands before and after using Anusol.
Anusol is used when needed. However, if you forget to use it when you should, or if it is not available when you need it, do not use more Anusol to make up for the forgotten dose.
Using more Anusol will not clear your symptoms any faster but may increase your risk of experiencing side effects.
All medicines have the potential of causing side effects, though not everybody experiences them. It is important to understand the risks associated with your medicines and report any side effects to your doctor.
You can find the side effects and cautions associated with using Anusol in the patient information leaflet supplied with your medicine.

If you experience any side effects of Anusol, whether listed above or in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor.
If your symptoms worsen, or you notice no improvement after using this medicine for 7 days, speak to your doctor.
Anusol is not suitable for everyone. If you are not sure whether this medicine is suitable for you, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
Using more of this medicine will not treat your systems faster, but it can increase your risk of experiencing side effects.
Do not use this medicine if you:
Speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using Anusol if you:
Do not use pile treatments for more than 7 days.
Do not use more than one pile treatment at the same time.

Interactions between the consumption of alcohol and Anusol have not been observed.
However, it may be ideal to avoid alcohol while treating haemorrhoids (piles). Alcohol can cause dehydration, leading to constipation which worsens the symptoms of piles.

If you are pregnant, intend on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor for further advice before using Anusol cream.
