Using Proctozone-HC 2.5% for hemorrhoids question

I did a search for Proctozone-HC 2.5% but nothing came up so hoping it hasn't been discussed. I have dealt with hemorrhoids for quite a few years now and used a generic brand of Prep H for relief. The last eight months I've been getting really sore skin and more painful itching. I was prescribed Proctozone-HC 2.5% to use. I'm a little nervous using it as I have a tendency to itch when it becomes unbearable and worried if it is harmful to get the cream inside the anus. I know that it has the applicator and you are allowed to use it up to an inch inserted. I have a hemorrhoids right on the edge of the anus too so worried about getting the cream inside applying also. I forgot to ask my doctor the precautions surrounding this worry and was wondering if anybody can help me out. Once again I know that you shouldn't itch something that is itching but the hemorrhoids and dry areas just get too bad where I can't help it (plus sleeping at night I find myself waking up and doing it without really realizing it). Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Still haven't used the cream as I'm nervous. I guess I should have stated in the thread title that I'm curious about all hemorrhoid based creams instead of the Proct alone. Any help is appreciated as I'm not sure what to do and if I can harm myself much if the cream gets inside the body.

Re: Using Proctozone-HC 2.5% for hemorrhoids question

Hi, I don't know anything about proctozone but a little bit of advice to help ease your itchiness. It‘s important to keep the area clean from feces and that is difficult to do inside.

I purchased a douche from that well known on-line auction house (not allowed to mention its rules) you know the one I mean...starts with a small 'e'. And if I get a flair-up of piles I douche the area to keep it clean and then use ordinary Vaseline to lubricate the skin so that there is no friction down there. Sometimes I'll squirt neat olive oil further in with a syringe to lubricate the exit of the next turd. But you should try and keep your stools soft through correct diet to avoid stressing the area. It's friction as much as anything else that causes the itchiness and Vaseline is great at solving that. Let us know how you solve your problem so that we can all benefit. Good luck, Cheers, kennyboy.

I was given the same cream by my general dr. to help with the itching. This only treats the symptoms, and not the underlying cause. Go to a hemorrhoid or colon specialist to get treated for the cause. The cream may provide some short term relief, but nothing sustainable.

Can Proctozone-HC 2.5 cream also be used for mosquito bites because of the itching?
