Xyloproct is an ointment used to relieve symptoms associated with haemorrhoids (piles), such as itching and pain in the anus and surrounding genital areas.
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, haemorrhoids 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 haemorrhoids can cause several unpleasant symptoms, including:
Diagnosis of haemorrhoids is usually made based on the physical symptoms alone.
If it is the first time you are experiencing haemorrhoids, or if you experience any rectal bleeding, you should speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
The main cause of haemorrhoids is often associated with excessive pressure exerted upon the blood vessels surrounding the anal area.
There are several factors which contribute to the development of haemorrhoids, such as:
There are a number of ways you can prevent haemorrhoids, including drinking plenty of water, eating a healthy and balanced diet enriched with fibre, and exercising regularly.
Xyloproct contains two active ingredients; a corticosteroid called hydrocortisone and a local anaesthetic called lidocaine.
The corticosteroid reduces the inflammation at the site of application. It does this by preventing the cells from producing certain inflammatory substances. This brings relief from swelling and redness around the anus, and helps to reduce the size of piles.
The local anaesthetic blocks nerve signals, numbing the area the ointment is applied to and bringing relief from pain and discomfort.
The anaesthetic agent (lidocaine) should start working within 3 to 5 minutes of applying the cream.
The time it takes for Xyloproct to treat your piles will depend on the severity of your piles and how your body responds to treatment.
The ointment can be applied directly to external piles and internal piles, using the supplied applicator. The amount of the ointment you should use depending on the size of the area affected, though you shouldn't use more than 6g of Xyloproct a day.
For external use:
Squeeze a pea-sized amount of the ointment onto your fingertip, and spread it onto the affected area without rubbing it in.
Do not use toilet paper to apply the ointment.
For internal use:
Always wash your hands before and after applying Xyloproct.
If you forget to use Xyloproct when you should, use it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue to use Xyloproct as prescribed.
Do not use more Xyloproct to make up for the missed dose.
If you apply more Xyloproct than you should, speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
You should not use more than 6g of Xyloproct (approximately 1 third of a tube) a day.
If you are unsure how much Xyloproct you are supposed to use, speak to your doctor.
