Proctofoam

Proctofoam is a type of medicinal foam used to relieve the pain and inflammation caused by haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids, sometimes known as piles, are swellings in or around the anus, caused by enlarged blood vessels. It is a very common illness which around half of people experience at some point in their lives, but there is no definite singular cause of them. They can be very painful and irritating, especially after going to the toilet. Proctofoam is a medicine which contains two active ingredients to relieve the symptoms of piles and reduce the pain you experience from them.

If you need to use Proctofoam, you can buy it online safely from a UK doctor such as Doctor-4-U by completing our simple medical questionnaire and getting a certified prescription. It will be dispatched within 24 hours.

How does Proctofoam work?

Proctofoam contains two active ingredients, hydrocortisone and pramoxine, which work together in a two pronged approach to relieve you of the pain of piles. The first of these, hydrocortisone, is a type of steroid medication which helps to reduce the inflammation and itchy feeling. Pramoxine works alongside as a local anaesthetic to help manage the pain and discomfort. Local anesthetics work by numbing the affected area for a short period of time.

Who is Proctofoam suitable for?

Although Proctofoam is designed for those suffering from haemorrhoids, your medical history may mean it isn’t right for you.

Speak to your doctor before using Proctofoam if:

  • You are allergic to hydrocortisone, pramoxine or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
  • You have a viral, bacterial or fungal infection.
  • You have ever had severe depression or bipolar disorder, or any of your close family have as steroid medication can exacerbate this

Like all medications, Proctofoam may have side effects, but not everyone gets them. Common side effects include:

  • Unexpected fattening of the face, neck and body
  • Irregular periods
  • Hair starts to grow on your body (women)
  • Dusky complexion with purple patches
  • Skin thinning
  • Allergic skin reaction
  • Infection
  • Burning sensation
  • Itching

There are also more serious side effects Proctofoam may cause. Speak to your doctor if you experience any of the following:

  • Mania, depression and mood swings
  • Hallucinations
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Anxiety

Always follow your doctor’s guidance on using Proctofoam, and only use the following information as a guide. It is recommended that you use Proctofoam up to three times a day, applying the foam to the affected area. Your doctor will advise as to whether you should use the foam internally or externally. Continue this for up to seven days, and speak to your doctor if symptoms persist.
