How does Perinal Spray work?
Perinal Spray is effective when it comes to relieving symptoms of Haemorrhoids because it has two active ingredients; hydrocortisone and lidocaine. Lidocaine has anaesthetic properties and can give you temporarily relief of the pain along the nerve fibres.
Hydrocortisone has properties which help to reduce inflammation. Inflammation normally comes about as a result of certain substances being released in the immune system. The result is that blood vessels begin to widen and the affected area becomes swollen and painful. The medication slows the rate these substances are produced and minimises the swelling and itching associated with haemorrhoids.
How do I use Perinal Spray?
You should not use Perinal Spray for any area other than the anal area. This medicine is for external use only and therefore should not be sprayed inside the anus. Perinal should not be sprayed on broken skin or skin that is infected. Likewise, when using this spray, you should avoid contact with the eyes, nose or mouth.
Perinal Spray must only be used for a limited period of time. In most cases, patients are advised not to take it for a period longer than 7 days, unless they have been given specific instructions by a doctor. If it so happens that while taking the medication, you experience bleeding, continuous pain, bowel movement changes and weight loss, you should seek medical help immediately. Make sure you wash your hands after each application as medication must not come into contact with the nose, eyes and mouth.
