Proctosedyl BD Cream is used in the treatment of piles.
How it works
Proctosedyl BD Cream is a combination of three medicines: Beclometasone Topical, Lidocaine Topical and Phenylephrine which treat piles. Beclometasone Topical is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Lidocaine Topical is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing pain sensation. Phenylephrine is a decongestant which shrinks blood vessels in the affected area and decreases swelling.
