Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment - Does It Work?-Review

What Is Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment?

The following review is for a product called Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment. The  manufacturer claims that this medication is used to alleviate pain and itchiness around the rectal area, by using a type of anesthetic in order to relieve symptoms associated with hemorrhoids. The manufacturer also claims that it has anti-inflammatory properties to further facilitate the healing process.

Ingredients And How it Works

Key Ingredient:

  • Benzocaine

Benzocaine is a form of anesthetic commonly used in most generic topical pain relievers and cough formulas. It also has anti-inflammation properties which makes it an essential compound with these kinds of topical medications.

Other Ingredients:

  • Benzethonium chloride
  • Polyethylene glycol
  • Polyethylene glycol

Benzethonium is a synthetic salt that provides antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Polyethylene glycol, referred to as PEG, is used as an inactive ingredient, and is therefore an additive in this ointment.

Scientific research has shown that topical ingredients such as Butcher’s Broom, Witch Hazel, and Ginger are beneficial when used as a treatment for hemorrhoids as they combat itching, circulation and pain. These are all-natural ingredients and we feel that Amercaine could strengthen their ointment by adding these ingredients.

Daily Serving

As per the manufacturer, the application of this topical ointment is quite simple. Firstly, clean the area with warm or lukewarm water and soap. The area must then be thoroughly rinsed and gently dried off using a paper towel. Once completely dry, the ointment may be applied to the affected area. This has to be done six times per day. Children who are below the age of 12 should first consult a doctor before using this ointment.

The Cost

One tube of Americaine Hemorrhoidal Ointment contains about 28g of the topical ointment and can be purchased through online stores at $7.03


We have found that the manufacturer does not state any kind of return or refund for this
product. We find this a downside to this product as most leading manufacturers offer either a return policy or 100% 365-day money back guarantee. This product is an over-the-counter topical medication and as such will be under various types of refund or return policies depending on the pharmacy that it has been bought from. It is best to simply ask the local pharmacy or online retailer of their own refund/return policy if they have one. If there is no guarantee whatsoever we would doubt how effective this product actually is.
