Is Lcaine used anally (Rectally)?

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

Yes, Lcaine is used anally for alleviating discomfort due to anal fissures and hemorrhoids.

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.
