The problem of hemorrhoids is familiar to both men and women. The initial symptoms of the disease include: discomfort in the anus, mild itching, problematic bowel movements. Over time, blood appears during the bowel movement. The more neglected the disease, the more intense its manifestations are.

Many patients postpone a visit to a proctologist and try to treat hemorrhoids using local remedies: suppositories (suppositories) or ointments (creams, gels). Such dosage forms have their advantages and disadvantages. Some patients prefer ointments. But in pharmacies they are presented in such abundance that one can simply get confused. Our experts conducted a study and ranked the best hemorrhoid ointments.

What is better than suppositories or ointment for hemorrhoids

For different types of hemorrhoids, their dosage forms are suitable. With an external manifestation of pathology, it is advisable to use ointments, and with an internal manifestation, candles. Sometimes the use of these dosage forms is combined, which increases their effectiveness.

As the symptoms become less pronounced, the ointment is used less and less.
