Preparation H is a topical ointment for the treatment of uncomfortable symptoms associated with hemorrhoids. The active ingredient in Preparation H is Phenylephrine which is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it narrows the blood vessels where applied. This comes to aid with hemorrhoids because they are an inflation of the rectal tissue.
Preparation H is used to relieve the itching and discomfort associated with hemorrhoids, while it temporarily shrinks the hemorrhoidal tissue and therefore relieves the burning, it does not remove the hemorrhoid. As hemorrhoids are uncomfortable, Preparation H provides a protective coating which further relieves anorectal irritation. While it does not solve the issue of hemorrhoids, Preparation H protects the inflamed and irritated surface to ease the passing of bowel movements, which tend to be painful during an inflammation.
