What is Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream?
Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream has been designed for temporary relief of pain, soreness and burning as well as helping to ease the itching and discomfort associated with hemorrhoids. The cream will help provide a coating for relief of anorectal discomforts and will assist in making bowel movements less painful. Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream will shrink the hemorrhoidal tissue allowing consumers to get on with their daily lives.
Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream has an extensive ingredient list. The cream contains:
- Phenylephrine HCl

These ingredients have been tried and tested, but the sheer amount of them may lead to consumers suffering adverse effects.
The instruction for using Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream will vary depending on if the hemorrhoids are external or internal. Where practical, cleanse the affected area by patting or blotting with an appropriate cleansing wipe. Gently dry by patting or blotting with a tissue or a soft cloth before applying the cream. The cream should be applied externally or in the lower portion of the anal canal only up to 4 times daily, especially at night, in the morning, or after each bowel movement
When the application is in the lower anal canal, consumers should remove the cover from the dispensing cap. Attach dispensing cap to the tube. Lubricate dispensing cap well, then gently insert dispensing cap partway into the anus. The dispensing cap should be thoroughly cleaned after each use. If children or those pregnant or breastfeeding need to use Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream, then a consultation with a doctor should take place.
Equate Hemorrhoidal Cream is sold in tubes and a 2oz tube can cost as little as $3.28. When the product is purchased in stores there is obviously no shipping charges, but there does not appear to be any advantages when buying the product in bulk.
