Description of the drug
Ultraprot from hemorrhoids( candles andointment) is a complex preparation intended for topical application. Has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiallergic and antipruritic effect. Contains in its composition zinccoquine and derivatives of fluocortolone.
The effectiveness of the drug is achieved through two forms of fluocortolone, which provide a rapid therapeutic effect, alleviating the painful symptoms of hemorrhoids, and at the same time contribute to the continued action of the remedy. The drug is available in two dosage forms: ointment and suppositories, and has practically no contraindications to use.
Pharmacological action Ultraprot from hemorrhoids
The main active substances of the Ultraproject are two components: fluocortolone and zinccoin.
Fluocortolone - is a glucocorticosteroid that provides local antipruritic, anti-inflammatory, anesthetic and antiallergic effects. These effects are achieved due to a number of changes occurring in the body as a result of hormones. Thus, the reduction of inflammatory processes occurs due to a decrease in the activity of enzymes that destroy tissues and cells.
Under the influence of glucocorticosteroids, the rate of synthesis of substances playing the role of inflammatory agents in the body is significantly reduced, the oxidation of lipids and the formation of free radicals in the inflammatory focus are inhibited. Thus, an antioxidant effect is achieved, the permeability of the vessel walls decreases, the amount of exudate decreases and the capillary circulation normalizes.
Two esters of fluocortolone, which are part of the preparation, have a different degree of dissolution in fats and molecular weight. As a result, the active substance reaches the inflammatory focus at different rates, which on the one hand provides instant therapeutic effect, and on the other hand maximally long therapeutic effect of the drug components.
Antiallergic and antipruritic effect of the drug is achieved by increasing the ability of blood cells to bind histamine and reduce the sensitivity of tissues to its effects. With topical application of glucocorticosteroids, microcirculation improves, puffiness decreases, anal itching disappears and healing and regeneration of the rectal mucosa is accelerated.
TSINHOKINE is a strong local anesthetic that blocks the nerve endings and effectively cures pain.
Despite the fact that the Ultraproject includes such potent components, the drug is considered quite safe, since the penetration of active substances into the bloodstream is very low and systemic effects from the use of glucocorticosteroids are practically absent. Only minor doses of fluocortolone penetrate the blood, which are metabolized in the liver and are excreted from the body by the kidneys.

For the treatment of external hemorrhoids, a small amount of ointment( with a pea size) is taken to the tip of the finger and gently applied to the damaged area. If the external hemorrhoids are highly inflamed and painful, they should be densely lubricated with the drug and carefully back into the rectum. With internal hemorrhoids, the attached plastic tip is put on a tube with ointment and injected into the rectum. Then a small amount of ointment is squeezed out and the tip is removed.
Rectal suppositories Ultraproect should be used once a day, trying to inject a candle as deep as possible into the anus.

In the treatment of hemorrhoids, along with the use of medicines, an important role is played by adherence to a special diet and adjusting the way of life.

Therapy even with the most modern and effective drugs will not give the proper result if the patient does not eat properly and his diet will be dominated by fatty, fried, spicy, salty and spicy dishes. Their use will contribute to irritation of the mucous membrane, blood flow to the pelvic organs and eventually lead to the appearance of constipation, which is the main cause of hemorrhoids development.
Proper nutrition involves the use of a large number of vegetables and fruits, rich in fiber, low-fat varieties of meat and fish, a variety of cereals and fermented milk products. You should observe the drinking regime and drink up to two liters of liquid daily in the form of juices, herbal and green teas, compotes, drinking and mineral water.

You should walk more, do active sports, perform special exercises. Only an integrated approach to the treatment of the disease will cope with the symptoms of hemorrhoids and eliminate the causes leading to the progression of the disease.

Nicholas, St. Petersburg
On the advice of a doctor, I recently bought Ultraproject suppositories for the treatment of a rectal fissure. Recently, I was very much tormented by this problem. There were constant pains, bleeding appeared after defecation, constantly felt itching and burning in the anus. After the first application, I immediately felt a great deal of relief.
The pain and itching disappeared, a few days later the blood ceased to appear during the emptying of the intestine. Now I feel good, but the doctor advised me to continue the course of treatment for another week, using 1 candle a day. I hope that the fissure of the anus will completely heal and stop bothering me. The drug is very strong, I will use it in the future if there are unpleasant symptoms.
