Presentation
Anacaine HC

Anacaine HC Cream: Each gram cream contains Lidocaine Hydrochloride BP 30 mg and Hydrocortisone Acetate BP 5 mg.

Descriptions
Lidocaine inhibits the ionic fluxes required for initiation and conduction of impulses, thereby effecting local anesthetic action. Hydrocortisone acetate provides relief from inflammatory and pruritic manifestations.
Indications
Anacaine Cream is used for the anti-inflammatory and anesthetic relief form itching, pain, soreness and discomfort due to hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal pruritus and similar conditions of the anal area.
Dosage & Administration
Anacaine cream should be applied to the affected area(s) twice daily or as directed by physician. Applicator tip should be gently inserted into the anal area (areas of discomfort and anal opening). Applicator and tube should not completely insert in the anus or rectum.
Side Effects
During or immediately following application of Anacaine Cream, there may be transient stinging or burning from open areas of skin, or transient blanching (lightening), or erythema (redness) of the skin.

Systemic absorption may occur when extensive areas are treated and may cause suppression of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis; avoid using for prolonged periods or with occlusive dressings.
