Ointment is very similar to creams, but differ in their consistency and feel. Because they’re a tad greasier, you may find they help relieve sore, dry skin, too.
Anusol™ Ointment is for topical use only, which means it is applied directly to the affected area. To use, simply rub the ointment directly onto the outside of your anus. Anusol™ Ointment also has lubricating properties for use alongside suppositories.
The Anusol™ range also includes Soothing Relief Ointment with hydrocortisone to help reduce inflammation.
