Proctosol HC is a topical cream that is used to help treat the pain and swelling associated with hemorrhoids. It includes hydrocortisone, which helps to reduce swelling and redness in the infected area.
In addition to being used to treat hemorrhoids, Proctosol HC can be used to treat other rectal disorders, including anal fissures and itching. The cream must be applied topically to the infected area.
Side affects associated with Proctosol HC include additional redness, burning and itching. If one experiences bleeding in the area or a change in skin appearance after using the cream, it is advised to consult a medical professional.
People who are allergic to hydrocortisone should not use this medication. There may be additional drug interactions that must be discussed with a medical professional before use.
