In Treatment of Piles

How to use Caldob Rectal Cream

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor.

How Caldob Rectal Cream works

Caldob Cream is a combination of four medicines: Lidocaine / Lignocaine, Calcium Dobesilate, Hydrocortisone and Zinc. Lidocaine / Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain, thereby decreasing the sensation of pain. Calcium Dobesilate is a vasoprotective medicine which works on the walls of the small blood vessels and reduces their leakage and fragility. It also improves blood flow by decreasing viscosity/thickness of blood, thereby relieving inflammation (redness and swelling) in piles/haemorrhoids and promoting healing. Hydrocortisone is a steroid which reduces redness, itching, and swelling due to piles/haemorrhoids. Zinc has astringent and antiseptic action.
