What is Perinal Cutaneous Spray

Perinal contains two active ingredients- Hydrocortisone and Lidocaine. These ingredients are what helps to lessen your symptoms without provoke any Serious Side effects.

How effective is Perinal?

Perinal contains two major active ingredients, lidocaine and hydrocortisone. The hydrocortisone in this product helps to reduce the inflammations and itchiness in your anal area. Lidocaine, on the other hand, allows you to minimize the discomfort caused by piles hence making your condition more bearable. 

Recent studies conducted by different researchers also show that Perinal is one of the most effective medications that you can use to treat piles. These studies involved about 150 people with piles. The researchers administered different doses of this medication to these patients depending on the severity of their conditions. After the study, these experts noted that using Perinal helped all patients to treat their piles within a short period and more effectively than any other medication they had tried before.

What dose should I choose?

Perinal mostly comes in a 30 ml bottle and can be used by adults and kids above 14 years old. Kids under the age of 14 can also use this product, but only if prescribed by a doctor. You can use this medication one or about three times daily, depending on the severity of your condition. However, you must avoid using Perinal more than seven days continuously to avoid experiencing severe side effects. If you forget to administer one dose of this product, do not double the dose to help avoid experiencing severe side effects. Instead, wait for the next time you feel pain or itchiness and administer your Perinal then.

How should I use Perinal?

Before using this medication, ensure you prime the pump by pressing at the top once or twice. Spray your Perinal over the anal area, making sure not to touch any other body part to avoid side effects.

You can also combine using this product with other home remedies, such as applying aloe vera on days when you’re not using it. Doing that helps to increase the chances of treating your condition more effectively and even reduce the likelihood of getting severe side effects caused by continuous use.

How does Perinal work?

Perinal contains lidocaine and hydrocortisone as its active ingredients. Lidocaine is a popular anaesthetic and works by blocking the pathway of major pain messages along your nerve fibres. Doing that numbs the affected area hence helping you to reduce the itching and pain that you were feeling. 

Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid, and it works by entering inside the cells near your anal area and decreasing the production of substances causing inflammation. Doing so helps minimize the swelling and itching that you are feeling hence making the recovery process more manageable.

How long do I take Perinal for before I notice a difference?

There is no exact duration that this medication takes to treat piles as its active ingredients act differently on people. So, you might experience some benefits within the first day of use or not. Most people notice significant changes from the second or third day of use. However, some users also use this product for even a week without noticing any changes, which is extremely rare. Therefore, expect to see some changes from the second or third day of use. If you do not experience any benefits after about a week, then consult a doctor to help you determine what you are doing wrong or get another medication. Also, make sure not to overuse this product if you feel like it is not providing the desired results, as that might cause severe side effects.
