Proctofoam HC is a combination medication used to treat minor pain, itching, swelling, and discomfort caused by hemorrhoids and other problems of the anal area, such as anal fissures.

This medication contains pramoxine, an anesthetic that works by temporarily numbing the area, and hydrocortisone, a corticosteroid that reduces redness, itching, and swelling.


  • Clean the affected area with mild soap and water if possible (wash well and pat dry).
  • Shake the canister well before each use.
  • Use the applicator provided to insert the medication.
  • Insert the applicator tip only 1/2 to 1 inch (1.5 to 2.5 centimeters) inside the anus.
  • Wash your hands immediately after use.
  • Use the medication as directed by your healthcare provider, typically 3-4 times daily or after bowel movements.
  • Use the medication regularly for best results.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your condition improves or worsens.


  • Don't insert any part of the canister directly into your anus.
  • Don't insert the applicator more than 1/2 inch inside.
  • Don't use your finger or tissue to apply the medication internally.
  • Don't apply the medication to your eyes, nose, ears, or mouth.
  • Don't cover the treated area with plastic or bandages unless your healthcare provider instructs you to.
  • Don't use more medication, use it more often, or use it for longer than prescribed.
