Elfate-LM Rectal Cream


Product introduction

Elfate-LM Rectal Cream is a medicine used in the treatment of anal fissure (tear in the lining of the anus). It kills the infection-causing bacteria and promotes the healing of fissures. It also blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain which decreases pain sensation.

Additionally, Elfate-LM Rectal Cream forms a protective coating on the affected area and prevents any irritation, pain, or burning sensation in the anus. This promotes wound healing and protects the affected area from further injury. 

Elfate-LM Rectal Cream should be used in the dose and duration as directed by your doctor. Clean and dry the affected area and gently apply it over the affected area. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. Do not stop using it suddenly without talking to your doctor, as it may lead to worsening your condition.

Avoid getting it into your eyes, nose, or mouth. In case of accidental exposure, wash them with plenty of water and seek medical attention. You should stop using it and inform your doctor if you notice worsening of the infection or if you develop increased redness and irritation.

On application, the medicine may cause burning sensations, tingling, and rashes. However, these are temporary and usually resolve with time. If you experience any other side effects which you think are caused by the medicine, you should let your doctor know. They may be able to suggest ways to reduce or prevent the side effects.

To make sure it is safe for you, always tell your doctor what other health conditions you have and what other medicines you are taking. If you are pregnant, thinking about becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding, ask your doctor before taking this medicine.

How Elfate-LM Rectal Cream works

Elfate-LM Rectal Cream is a combination of three medicines: Lidocaine, Metronidazole and sucralfate. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to the brain which decreases pain sensation. Metronidazole is an antibiotic that kills any harmful bacteria in the anal region and prevents infections. Sucralfate is a protective agent that forms a protective layer on the skin of the anal region and prevents any irritation, pain or burning sensation in the anus. This promotes wound healing and formation of new healthy skin.
