How Hem-spray Works?
Hem-spray™ provides instant relief from hemorrhoids. Its active ingredients work
together to help soothe itching, pain and the swelling.
Witch hazel acts as an astringent that disinfects the affected area and stops itching
that may be associated with a healing hemorrhoid. It is important to control itching
during the healing phase as accidentally scratching the affected area may trigger
a new inflammation. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory not just for hemorrhoid
cases but for inflamed pimples, eye bags and varicose veins as well.
Phenylephrine Hydrochloride is a vascoconstrictor used in many colds and sinusitis
medication. Hem-spray™, works by provisionally narrowing the blood vessels in the
area applied and thus, reduces swelling.
It also contains Camphor, which is a known analgesic and anesthetic, providing instant
relief from pain upon absorption of the liquid into the skin. A clinical study in
2003 showed that topical application of Camphor in pain inflicted areas significantly
reduces suffering among patients, albeit temporarily. It is believed to act as a
mediator between the source, the pain impulses and the brain, thus reducing the manifestation
of pain sensations.
Glycerin, another active ingredient in Hem-spray™, acts as a moisturizer and helps
heal damaged skin layers in the affected area
In product reviews and testimonials by users, many users cite the ease in use of
the product as the ultimate advantage over other hemorrhoid relief products. Unlike
creams, it is not messy and can be applied with no or minimal assistance from another
person. Thus, it is the best quick fix item against hemorrhoids in your medicine
The product manufacturer guarantees instant relief from the pain and discomforts
of hemorrhoids and this is backed by feedbacks from users. A mild stinging sensation
is felt immediately upon application, but relief from pain and itch is achieved in
less than a minute.
Possible Side Effects
The product contains phenylephrine. Phenylephrine pre-disposes hypertension in a
number of cases. Hence, if you have hypertension, or feel that you might be prone
to such, it is highly recommended that you consult a doctor before using Hem-Spray™.
Because this is a strong substance, it should be applied in small, controlled quantities
in the affected areas. If you do not get the desired healing effect in a week or
so, it is important that you consult your physician.
Phenylephrine is also observed to induce upset stomach, vomiting and acute abdominal
Using the spray for purposes other than those intended and indicated in the package
should be avoided at all costs. It is not uncommon for patients to apply hemorrhoid
relief preparations to swollen eye bags and inflamed muscles due to the instant effect
against swelling and inflammation.
