What is Anusol Hemorrhoid Ointment?
The following review covers Anusol Hemorrhoid Ointment, a formula that claims to soothe and ease the burning caused by hemorrhoids while reducing the swelling. The manufacturer states that it relieves the pain and discomfort of both internal and external hemorrhoids.
- Zinc Sulphate monohydrate 0.5%
- Calcium phosphate
- mineral oil
Zinc sulfate monohydrate 0.5% is the main ingredient which acts as an astringent and decreases irritation in the affected area. The manufacturer clearly warns that you should read the package insert for complete directions before use. You should contact your doctor before using this ointment if you are pregnant. Also avoid use if your skin is sensitive to any of its ingredients.
Anusol Hemorrhoid Ointment comes in a tube of 30 gm with an applicator. The manufacturer recommends that you should start by bathing the affected area and dry it gently. Apply the ointment freely to the affected area every four hours or as needed as well as after each bowel movement.
What is the Cost?
It was somewhat concerning that we could not find the recommended purchase price of this formula on the manufacturer’s official website. However, we discovered that it is being sold online in a number of drugstores and outlets though at varying prices. At the time of writing you could buy a 30 gram tube for $15.50 on Amazon.
The manufacturer does not offer a satisfaction or money back guarantee. This raised our concerns because it could possibly mean that the product is not as effective as it is claimed to be. We do, however, recognize there may be hygiene and health issues involved in receiving back used product.
Our Final Review of Anusol Hemorrhoid Ointment
Anusol Hemorrhoid Ointment is a promising formula for treating hemorrhoids. It does not seem to have any adverse side effects or reactions associated with its use and, at the time of this review it had garnered a reasonable number (67) of customer reviews which were notably positive overall (83% positive).
However, it does not come with the money back guarantee and thus we can not guarantee its effectiveness.
