What Is Hemorrhoids Cream Good For?

Aug 16, 2008
If the hemorrhoids do not cause much discomfort to the patient doctors will normally advice them to use over the counter hemorrhoids cream, ointments or pads. These creams, pads and ointments are found to be very effective in treating mild hemorrhoids that do not cause serious problems to the patients. These hemorrhoid creams that can be purchased from the medical stores without the prescription contain witch hazel or a topical anti-inflammatory agent that contain hydrocortisone to give an immediate relief to the patient from the discomforts caused by hemorrhoids or piles.

Hemorrhoid creams are only helpful to treat mild hemorrhoid conditions. Continuous use of creams that contain cortisone may weaken the tissues and should be discouraged. Using of these creams by the patients of hemorrhoids with an intention to get rid of the embarrassment caused by piles as a short cut method may invite troubles in future.

If used by the right person in the right way, hemorrhoids cream will help to smoothen and lubricate the tissues surrounding anus. Though temporary it will provide him fast relief pain, soreness, itching and burning feeling caused by hemorrhoids.

A large number of hemorrhoid creams from different companies are now available in the market for the relief of the hemorrhoids patients. It is always better to consult a doctor before you start using any of these creams to avoid complications in future. A person ignorant about the contents or the use and effectiveness of the active ingredients of the medicine may not be able to understand the side effects of using such a cream without the help of a qualified medical practitioner. And one has to be extremely vigilant to follow the directions for use of the cream scribbled on the carton of the cream to get the best results and to avoid complications.

To get the best results from using hemorrhoid cream patients will be asked by the doctor to apply the cream in the affected area after a warm shower or bath. Gently dry the area by using a clean towel or white tissues before application of the cream. The applicator that comes along with the creams will help you to apply cream properly in the affected area. And the applicator should be cleansed thoroughly after each application to avoid infections. Normally a patient will have to apply the cream into the affected area four to five times a day.
