Product Description

Scheriproct contains a substance which reduces inflammation (prednisolone) and a local anaesthetic (cinchocaine) which relieves pain.
This medicine is used for the relief of the inflammation, swelling, itching and soreness of piles (haemorrhoids) and to relieve itching of the anus (back passage). It is used short-term usually for 5 to 7 days.

Scheriproct suppositories and ointments work to relieve the pain and reduce the inflammation from hemorrhoids (piles). The suppositories are to be used internally, and the ointment can be used both internally and externally.

How to use Scheriproct ointment?

Always use Scheriproct as directed by your doctor or pharmacist and for no longer than 7 days. Always wash your hands before and after applying Scheriproct.

Apply Scheriproct ointment twice a day, although it can be used 3-4 times on the first day if you need more relief. The dose for the suppositories is one per day, ideally after going to the toilet. If your piles symptoms are very bad, you can use 2-3 suppositories on the first day of treatment.

To use Scheriproct ointment:

  1. Gently wash and dry the anus and the skin around it.
  2. For use around the anus, squeeze a pea-sized amount onto a finger and spread over the skin without rubbing in.
  3. For use inside the anus, put the separate applicator nozzle onto the tube and squeeze the tube to fill the nozzle. One dose is the amount of ointment in the nozzle. Carefully insert the nozzle into the anus until it is fully inside, then squeeze the tube gently whilst slowly removing it from the anus. Wash the nozzle well with soapy water.

For troublesome piles you may also want to use Scheriproct suppositories for internal piles and their symptoms.
Available from my pharmacy as well as other treatments.
