Method of using ointment
Thus, the main purpose of Relief ointment is to remove puffiness and reduce inflammation in the area of hemorrhoidal nodes and internal tissues.
In this case, the drug has a regenerative and analgesic effect, toning and softening the problem areas.
With external open forms of hemorrhoids ointment is used as a medical application. For this, a special rectal tip is applied to each package, with which the ointment can be applied directly inside the rectum.
Rectal tip can be used not only for external, but also for internal forms of hemorrhoids, as well as various kinds of inflammation of hemorrhoids.
Before applying the ointment, mandatory hygienic procedures are carried out, in particular - the rectum is cleaned and cleared together with the area around the anus.
After these procedures are completed, the perineum should be wiped dry with a clean cloth or dried with a towel. Only after this, with light movements, apply a thin layer of ointment on the hemorrhoids. Do not rub or massage.
After this procedure, you should give the body a small rest. For this, you need to relax and lie down for a few minutes on your stomach.
At the first stages of treatment, this procedure should be repeated up to 5-6 times a day. After the appearance of positive results, the number of sessions can be gradually reduced, making up to two times a day.
The best time for this is after the morning and evening cleansing of the intestine. The course of treatment for each person is individual, but on average it lasts from two weeks to 20 days.

It is also common practice to use an ointment for external hemorrhoids and antihemorrhoidal candles for the internal.

The maximum effect of the ointment is particularly well manifested when it is correctly used in the early stages of the disease.
