What is hemorrhoid?

Preparation H 0.25 %-3 % Rectal Suppository
Drug Name: PHENYLEPHRINE HEMORR SUPP-RCTL
Other Brand Names: Anu-med, Rectacaine, Rectasol
Uses: This medication is used to temporarily relieve swelling, burning, pain, and itching caused by hemorrhoids. It contains phenylephrine, which belongs to a class of drugs known as sympathomimetic amines. It works by temporarily narrowing the blood vessels in the area. This effect decreases swelling and discomfort. Some products may also contain substances (e.g., cocoa butter, hard fat, mineral oil, shark liver oil) that form a protective barrier to prevent too much irritating contact with stool.
