The term hemorrhoids was first introduced into medicine by Hippocrates, and then it in Greek denoted bleeding. Today, this term refers to the inflammation of the venous nodes in the rectum.
These hemorrhoidal nodes become inflamed, bleed and fall out of the anus.
This is a fairly common phenomenon, despite the fact that many people with such a delicate problem hesitate to seek help from doctors.
According to statistics, the majority of patients with hemorrhoids are in the age group from 18 to 40 years, mainly male population and pregnant women. There are also cases when they suffer small children, and the elderly.
With the treatment of hemorrhoids should not be delayed, it is better at the initial stages to deal with this problem and get rid of it forever.
One of the anti-hemorrhoid medications is Proctosol. It is intended for topical application in the early stages of the disease, as well as in the presence of cracks in the anus and other associated ailments.
The preparation is produced in the form of rectal suppositories. After the introduction into the rectum, they envelop it from the inside, anesthetize and relieve the inflammation, providing a therapeutic effect.
The drug is combined, because it includes such substances:
The combination of these components effectively affects the symptoms of hemorrhoids in the first and second stages. As a rule, patients notice a significant improvement in their condition.
Action of components:
In medical practice this medication is most often prescribed for the treatment of the initial stage of hemorrhoids. The same with the drug treated anal fissures, which can be formed from mechanical damage to a solid object, infection in the anal glands or inflammation of the nerves in the anal passage.
The drug is often used to get rid of perianal eczema. If there is a pronounced rash in the area of the anus, this indicates an infectious disease of the skin, some cancers, possibly even venereal diseases.
Often in such situations, you should contact not only the proctologist, but also the dermatologist.
Also, the drug can be useful in inflammatory processes of the mucosa in the rectum. One of these diseases is proctitis, which is manifested by burning, itching and mucus secretion during the exit of feces.
If the treating physician of the patient is aware of his hypersensitivity to at least one of the components of Proctozole, he will not prescribe the drug for treatment.
It is also not recommended to use it, if any skin damage has occurred from the syphilis or tuberculosis in the anus.
For adults, the dosage is 1 suppository 2 times a day. Before the procedure, it is recommended to empty the intestine, wipe it with a soft cloth or wash it without using soap, then carefully insert the candle into the anus.
When the condition begins to improve, the daily dosage can be reduced to 1 suppository.
The use of a medicine always depends on the individual characteristics of the course of the disease, but the main course is about 10 days.
The main thing is that the duration of treatment does not exceed two weeks. Otherwise, you need to choose another means, which will not include a local anesthetic.
It is very important to refuse treatment with this medication during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
In this delicate period, you can use more gentle medications. The same applies to children under 18 years of age.
Interaction with other drugs, as well as alcohol has not been studied.
The use of the drug in some cases, mainly in the presence of contraindications in the perianal area, can lead to redness and swelling. The skin in such places begins to burn, itch and flake off.
If the prescribed dosage is for some reason increased, all of these symptoms can be very pronounced. In this situation, it is necessary to urgently cancel the drug and treat the problem that has appeared.
What patients think about Proctosol can be learned by examining their reviews.
I have tested the effectiveness of candles Proctosol on my own experience. For a long time I suffer from hemorrhoids, so now I have already established the second degree of the disease, but I do not really want to do the operation.
The doctor appointed candles, and I literally felt at once relieved. A few days later, defecation was not accompanied by severe pain, and after the entire course the hemorrhoidal nodes significantly decreased.
Elena Viktorovna, 52 years old
After birth, I noticed a crack in the rectum. Somehow it was inconvenient to go to the doctor, and time with the child did not suffice.
Girlfriends advised various candles that I used during periods of exacerbation. When they began to pester constant constipation, the crack began to bother even more, went to the toilet with blood.
Only then decided to go to the proctologist, who prescribed treatment with Proctosol. The relief was already half a course, although I honestly treated all 10 days.
Svetlana, 31 year
At one time I had to see a doctor who advised me to try these candles. Unlike other means, which I used before, he felt no burning, no itching. Anesthesia also pleases - after 30 minutes the pain passes. A full course, in general, relieves the problem for a long time.
I always thought that any medicine should be prescribed exclusively by doctors, but when I was too shy to go to a proctologist, I took advice from the Internet and bought Proctosol.
Now I do not regret, the cracks in the anus quickly healed and there is no discomfort in the anus.
