Sucralcoat Ano Cream


Overview

Introduction

Sucralcoat Ano Cream is a combination medicine used in the treatment of piles. It helps in relieving pain and quick healing of the piles. It also keeps the passage moist for easy passage of stool.

You should always use Sucralcoat Ano Cream exactly as your doctor has told you. The affected area should be clean and dry before application. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying for this medicine. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need as it will not clear your condition faster and some side effects may be increased. If your condition goes on for longer than four weeks or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. You can help this medicine work better by keeping the affected areas clean.

Common side effects include numbness, application site reactions (burning, irritation, itching and redness), an allergic reaction. Most of these are temporary and usually resolve with time. Please consult your doctor if these side effects persist for a longer duration. Avoid direct contact of the cream or ointment with your eyes.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

Get plenty of rest as lack of proper sleep may worsen the condition. Reducing stress, avoiding alcohol, exercising regularly, and getting enough vitamins and nutrients through your diet can also make you feel better.

Speak to your doctor if the itchiness or rash gets worse or does not go away. Get medical help right away if you see signs of severe allergic reactions such as difficulty breathing, swelling of face or throat, sudden weakness with dizziness and restlessness.

How Sucralcoat Ano Cream works

Sucralcoat Ano Cream is a combination of two medicines: Lidocaine/Lignocaine and Sucralfate which treat piles. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that provides faster relief from pain due to swelling in piles. Sucralfate is an ulcer medication which covers the damaged tissue and protects it against injury to facilitate healing.
