How should I use diosmiplex, hydrocortisone, and pramoxine (Analpram Advanced)?
Use exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.
Wash your hands before and after applying this medication.
Before you apply the rectal cream, clean the rectal area with a cleansing wipe provided with the Analpram Advanced kit. Follow the directions on the label.
Use only a small amount of medicine when applying the hydrocortisone and pramoxine cream around the outside of the rectum. You may apply the cream 3 to 4 times daily or as directed by your doctor.
Do not cover the treated rectal area with a bandage or other covering unless your doctor has told you to. If you are treating the diaper area of a baby, do not use plastic pants or tight-fitting diapers. Covering the area that is treated with hydrocortisone topical can increase the amount of the drug your skin absorbs, which may lead to unwanted side effects. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Do not use diosmiplex, hydrocortisone, and pramoxine for any condition that has not been checked by a doctor.
Contact your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it gets worse after using this medication.
