How to use Anaproct Ointment

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and gently massage the ointment. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Anaproct Ointment works

Anaproct Ointment is a combination of four medicines: Hydrocortisone, Zinc Oxide, Lidocaine/Lignocaine and Allantoin. Hydrocortisone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Zinc Oxide has astringent and antiseptic action. Lidocaine/Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing pain sensation. Allantoin is a skin protectant that moisturizes and softens the skin.
