Proctosedyl Ointment is a combination of three medicines: Beclometasone Topical, Lidocaine Topical and Phenylephrine which treat piles. Beclometasone Topical is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Lidocaine Topical is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing pain sensation. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which shrinks blood vessels in the affected area and decreases swelling.
Proctosedyl Ointment may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
