How to buy Anusol HC online?

Haemorrhoids (piles) are distracting in your day-to-day life, which is why many opt for treatment such as Anusol HC to get rid of discomfort quickly. Available in both a suppository and cream, Anusol HC's flexibility in how it is applied means many men and women have plausible options when treating an outbreak of piles. You can buy either a 30mg tube of ointment or 12 packs of suppositories at OnlineClinic after completing a quick and free online consultation. When ordered before 4.30pm, you will receive your medication the very next day free of charge, so you can start treatment quickly before symptoms worsen.

With any medication in the UK, you need to enquire a prescription slip before buying. By doing this online, you avoid the time wasted booking and attending an appointment in person; especially for treatment you know works for you.

What is Anusol HC?

Anusol HC is an ointment to help reduce discomfort of haemorrhoids (piles). It is also effective at clearing up the infection quickly, stopping itching and painful bowel movements as well as further infection to the surrounding area. Available in both a cream and suppository, you have the choice of how to apply the solution based on ease and personal preference. This means Anusol HC is suitable for internal and external piles. Applied directly to the infected area, Anusol HC works swiftly at minimising discomfort and the steroid competent of the solution is only activated when symptoms are particular unpleasant.

Short facts about Anusol HC
How to use

Anusol HC suppositories can be used mainly for internal piles whilst the ointment is used for external piles. The ointment comes with a nozzle for easy application. Both types of Anusol HC is typically used twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.

How it works

Anusol HC is a steroid treatment used directly on the infected area to numb any pain or itching. It can also reduce inflammation and the risk of spreading the infection further.


Anusol HC is a treatment that should be used soon after the condition appears.


The cream/ointment is a dosage of 30g whilst the suppositories are 33g.

Side effects

Side effects are rare with Anusol HC however before buying, patients should be aware that skin irritation may occur when applied directly to unbroken skin.

How does Anusol HC work?

Anusol HC is a steroid treatment with the active ingredient hydrocortisone acetate that is rubbed directly onto the area in question. This reduces inflammation, discomfort and helps the area heal much quicker. Rather than working continuously, the formula in Anusol HC is only activated when the area is in significant discomfort or pain meaning that the solution is much more concentrated. Other ingredients in Anusol HC include zinc oxide and bismuth subgallate (bismuth salts) that work to clean and heal the area, substantially removing the risk of further infection around the area.

How to use Anusol HC?

Using Anusol HC will depend on whether you buy the ointment in cream form packaged in a tube or individual suppositories. For both, the same process goes as follows:

  • Clean and dry your hands and the infected area
  • Pat the infected area to avoid further irritation
  • Applied twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening)
  • Often applied after a bowel movement

Anusol HC shouldn't be used for more than seven days, however this could vary depending on doctor's instructions.

Anusol HC cream

  • Typically used for external haemorrhoids
  • Comes with rectal nozzle
  • Apply directly to the piles using the nozzle
  • Clean the surrounding area to avoid irritation

Anusol HC suppositories

  • Can be used for mainly internal piles
  • Can by used with the cream to lubricate the area before application
  • Delivered in packs with perfected dosage so you don't have to guess


Anusol HC dosages vary depending on which type of application you buy. The ointment/cream is in a 30g dosage whilst the suppository is in 33g dosage. As both are low doses within 3g of each other, it is a personal preference and where the infection is (internal or external) that determines which Anusol HC solution you buy, not the most tolerable.

Side effects and precautions

Like all haemorrhoids treatments, Anusol HC have minimal side effects that are unlikely to occur. For Anusol HC, this is down to the medicine not being directly ingested and therefore not passing through your body as well as a low dosage. Side effects include itching or pain where you have applied the cream or a rash appearing. Toa void such effects, it is common practise to remove any cream or ointment not touching the infected area after applying.

Precautions of Anusol HC cream should be considered before buying. These include if you are, have or have had:

  • Allergic to any of the ingredients
  • A viral skin infection (genital warts for example)
  • A bacterial skin infection

Note: Decisions about treatment are for both the prescriber and the person to jointly consider during the consultation. However, the final decision will always be the prescriber’s.
