It should be used in the dose and duration as directed by your doctor. Clean and dry the affected area before applying this medicine. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. Do not stop using it without talking to your doctor, as it may lead to worsening of your condition.

How Osil Rectal Cream works

Osil Cream is a combination of four medicines: Allantoin , Calcium Dobesilate , Hydrocortisone , and Lidocaine/Lignocaine. Allantoin is a skin protectant that works like a moisturizer to soften skin. 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. Lidocaine/Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing the sensation of pain.
