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.
