Description

What Is Proctofoam? 

Proctofoam HC contains a synthetic corticosteroid and a local anesthetic; it is prescribed to treat symptoms of hemorrhoids such as pain, itching, swelling, and discomfort. Pramoxine is a local anesthetic that numbs the region and blocks pain signals from the nerves to the brain. While hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that reduces redness, itching, and swelling, it reduces the action of the chemicals that causes inflammation. Itching, pain, allergic responses, eczema, small burns, insect bites, and other skin disorders can all be treated with this drug. 

How To Use Proctofoam 

This medication is a rectal foam with a strength of 1%, usually applied 3 to 4 times a day, or after each bowel movement or as prescribed by a doctor. The dose and length of medication will be based on the medical condition and response to the treatment. The area should be cleaned first with mild soap and water, and it should be rinsed well and dry. For hemorrhoid treatment, gently insert the tip of the applicator inside the anus around ½ to 1 inch, press down firmly the plunger to release the foam, and then withdraw it gently. Do not insert any part of the aerosol in the anus aside from the tip, and do not use fingers to apply the foam inside the anus; take the applicator apart and rinse it with warm water.  

For treatment on other parts of the body, spray a small amount on a tissue and rub it gently onto the affected area, do not cover unless instructed by your doctor. Try using this medication at the same time of the day daily to help attain benefits; if a dose is forgotten, you may take it as soon as remembered, but if it is almost the time for the following application, skip the missed dose, for double dosing is discouraged.
