Question about 5 years ago

Is Xylo used anally (Rectally)?

Dr. Braj Bhushan Ojha BAMS , Gastroenterology, Dermatology, Psychiatry, Ayurveda, Sexology, Diabetology

Yes, Xylo is used anally for alleviating discomfort due to anal fissures and hemorrhoids. An anal fissure is a minor tear or cuts near the delicate skin of anus which could result from a trauma or an injury. Anal fissures can be prevented or managed by taking adequate time in passing the bowel, by not putting much strain while passing the bowels, by cleaning the anal area gently and by keeping the anal area dry. Hemorrhoids, on the other hand, are the swollen veins in the anus and rectum region. These can develop from chronic constipation, aging, genetics, pregnancy, etc. These can be prevented and managed by eating a lot of fiber, getting some exercise, not spending a lot of time in the bathroom, cleaning up gently, taking warm water bath, and so on.
