Xyloproct is an ointment intended to relieve symptoms associated with haemorrhoids, such as anal and peri-anal itching (pruritis).
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 relieves the swelling and redness around the bottom and helps to reduce the size of piles.
The local anaesthetic blocks nerve signals, numbing the area the ointment is applied to and soothing the pain.
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.
Always wash your hands before and after applying Xyloproct.
All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everyone gets them. Understanding the risks associated with your medicines and remaining vigilant of changes which could be caused by the medicine is vital to your care.
Potential side effects associated with Xyloproct may include redness, swelling and itching where Xyloproct is applied.
If you notice the signs of allergic reaction, stop using Xyloproct immediately and seek urgent medical attention. Signs of an allergic reaction include:
Stop using Xyloproct and speak to your doctor if you notice any of the following:
Xyloproct is not suitable for everyone. Before you take Xyloproct, speak to your doctor or pharmacist if:
Do not use Xyloproct if:
No, do not use Xyloproct if you are pregnant. If you are suffering from haemorrhoids while pregnant, speak to your doctor, who will be able to provide suitable treatment.
If you become pregnant while using Xyloproct, stop using the medicine and talk to your doctor.
Do not use Xyloproct if you are breastfeeding unless your doctor has explicitly informed you that it is safe to do so.
Your doctor should assess the risk of using Xyloproct while you are breastfeeding.
Lidocaine, a local anaesthetic active in Xyloproct, can interact with anti-arrhythmic drugs, such as amiodarone or sotalol. If you are taking medicine to treat heart arrhythmia, speak to your doctor to determine whether Xyloproct is suitable for you.
You should avoid using other local anaesthetic agents while taking Xyloproct.
While alcohol should not interfere with the effectiveness of Xyloproct, it may adversely affect your haemorrhoids.
Alcoholic and caffeinated beverages should be avoided or limited while treating haemorrhoids because they can exhibit diuretic effects. This results in less water being absorbed by your body and can lead to constipation, increasing the difficulty of passing stools and causing unnecessary strain and discomfort.
Instead, drink plenty of water and eat a diet rich in fibre to loosen your stools, making them easier to excrete.
