Preparation H is used to provide temporary relief from symptoms associated with hemorrhoids, including swelling, burning, pain, and itching. One of its active ingredients, phenylephrine, falls under the category of sympathomimetic amines, and acts by constricting blood vessels in the affected area. This mechanism helps to alleviate discomfort and reduce inflammation. Certain formulations of this medication may incorporate ingredients such as mineral oil, shark liver oil, cocoa butter, or hard fat, which serve to create a barrier that guards against excessive irritation from stool.

Uses and Dosage

To use this product effectively, it should be applied up to four times per day. Generally, it should be used in the morning and at bedtime, or following each bowel movement, unless otherwise directed by your physician.

Before use, the affected area should be cleaned thoroughly with mild soap and water. Rinse well and pat dry.

Remove the protective cover from the applicator tip and attach it to the medication tube. Place a small amount of ointment on the applicator tip, and then gently insert the tip into the rectum. Squeeze the tube to dispense a small amount of medication. Apply some of the medication to the area surrounding the anus.

After each use, be sure to clean the applicator tip thoroughly and replace the protective cover.

The dosage of this medication is dependent upon your medical condition and response to treatment. It is important not to use more of this product or for a longer period of time than recommended.
