What is Anusol HC Ointment?

Anusol HC Ointment is used with other medications to treat proctitis and ulcerative colitis. It works by activating natural substances in the skin to reduce swelling, redness, and itching. It also relieves itching and swelling from hemorrhoids and other rectal problems.

Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the Anusol HC ointment exactly as directed. To apply the product to the outside of the anus only, use your finger to apply a small amount of ointment to the affected area and rub it gently.
Do not cover the area with plastic or waterproof bandages unless directed to do so by your doctor.
Wash hands immediately after use. Avoid getting the product in your eyes, nose, ears or mouth. If the medication gets in these areas, rinse the area immediately with clean water.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Anusol HC ointment is usually used 2 to 4 times daily, after each bowel movement or as directed by your doctor. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Some conditions may become worse when this drug is suddenly stopped. Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens after 1 to 2 weeks.
