Anugesic HC is a topical cream for haemorrhoids, marketed in the UK by Pfizer. It contains a number of active ingredients which soothe discomfort, reduce inflammation and help the affected region to heal. The cream is applied in the evening, morning, and after each bowel opening.

  1. Soothes discomfort
  2. Reduces inflammation
  3. Encourages new skin growth

Haemorrhoids, also referred to as piles, are swollen blood vessels (varicose veins) in the anal region. They cause swellings which can appear inside or outside the rectum, and cause feelings of discomfort or irritation. In many cases, blood may be present after bowel movements and appear on toilet paper.

Piles are extremely common, and most people will likely experience the condition to some extent at least once. Haemorrhoids are not serious, but if you notice more severe bleeding or find that it is being passed into the bowl along with stools, you should approach your doctor for advice.

One of the major contributing factors to haemorrhoids is high pressure in the blood vessels in and around the rectum. This might be more common in those who are overweight, or frequently experience constipation. Sitting down for long periods of time may increase a person’s susceptibility to haemorrhoids, as might prolonged diarrhoea. Due to increased pressure in the blood vessels in the pelvis, piles may also be more likely to occur during pregnancy.

There are a number of steps you can take to prevent piles or stop them from getting worse. These include: making alterations to your diet, such as eating more fibre and reducing caffeine intake, so that you aren’t as likely to get constipated; losing weight; or embarking on a regular programme of light exercise.

Some cases may clear up on their own after a few days, without the need for treatment. However, others may be more persistent and uncomfortable, and require medicinal help. Anugesic HC is an effective remedy for haemorrhoids, and is available to buy from our online pharmacy.

There are several functioning constituents in Anugesic HC, each serving a different purpose. Hydrocortisone acetate tackles inflammation by preventing the activity of a chemical which the body releases in response to irritation. One of the other ingredients, pramocaine hydrochloride, is a mild anaesthetic which stops pain signals being transmitted from the affected area to the brain. The remaining active agents, zinc oxide, balsam peru, benzyl benzoate and bismuth oxide, all work as antiseptics, and help to ease irritation. Balsam peru also helps the regeneration of healthy skin tissue.

Our secure clinic service makes buying medication online simple. Simply take a couple of minutes to complete our health assessment, and one of our team of dedicated practitioners will examine your answers. If they are confident that the product you are ordering is safe, they will generate a prescription for you and send this electronically to our UK-based pharmacy. Once dispensed, we’ll ship your treatment to your door via next-day courier.
