Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

Will this help reduce the swelling of your internal hemorrhoid?

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

They should help since they do recuce inflammation and swelling. There are also other prescriptions such as proctocedyl made for hemmies and rectal inflammation.

How often does it state to use the suppositories?

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

Is the reason you can't use them because of pain?

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

Yes and I think my internal hemorrhoids are so swollen as well.

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

I'd suggest you use an external cream which you can insert some into the anus with a nozzle attached to the tube. It won't be as painful and should take the swelling down enough for you to eventually use the supps as well.

Wear a panty liner to protect your underwear...

A sitz bath will also help to relieve the hemmies somewhat.

Are your hemmies only internal and not extended out of the anus?

Are you having any other issues such as constipation, etc?

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

I have a cream that has a nozzle like that but it doesn't work. I do have an external that I had to have lanced in the ER.

My pain is after I have a BM and every 4hrs.

Will the internal ones finally calm down or will they still stay swollen?

Thxs,
L

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

Oh wow, having one lanced would be ouchie painful...I've not had that experience and hope never to.

I know that some internal hemmies never go away if they're thrombosed and surgery is required....I guess it depends on the extent and severity of the hemmie.

Are you on stool softeners or fibre supplements or something to help soften/fluff/bulk the stool?

I would still suggest the sitz baths and if you haven't seen a specialist yet, get referred to one.

Have you tried other products? What about lidocane suppositories? I've read they can be used for hemmies and fissures.

I know of someone whose doctor prescribed Rectal Rockets. They're compounded by a pharmacy, but do the research on it and ask your doc about them. They might very well be what you need.

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

Yes the lancing in the ER was extremely painful because they had to numb you in that area with a needle several times!

Please explain to me what exactly a fissure is?

Right now the most pain that I have is after a BM. The stinging and burning is the worst but I have been keeping my stools soft but there is a lot of gas with it as well.

I don't think my internal hemmed are thrombosis but they are still swollen :-(

Thxs,
L

Re: Hydrocortisone Acetate Suppositories

My doctor prescribed these for me, but I didn't find them effective to really reduce the swelling. In fact, I suspect that the steroid thinned out the skin, and now I am experiencing an anal fissure that is on my internal hemorrhoid, which prolapses with every BM (I thought things couldn't get worse, but they have due to this new complication!).

To help the swelling go down internally, I took ibuprofen and then also inserted the Preparation H Suppository (which I haven't found in stores, just online). Insert it after a BM - otherwise you'll end of expelling it, which can help if you want to treat it more as a laxative. I found that the nozzle attachment to the preparation h ointment hurt a bit to use, but the suppository goes further in. On my bad days, my internal hemorrhoid kept popping back out after walking for long periods, but stopped after I used the suppository, so that's my only proof that they really helped shrinking.

Hope your situation has improved.

Has anyone else experienced more bleeding with the usage of the hydrocortisone acetate suppositories? The ones I were using were 25 mg.
