Today we are reviewing a product called Tronolane Dual Action Anesthetic Cream. This is an ointment designed to treat hemorrhoids. The manufacturer of this product claims that this ointment can shrink hemorrhoids and cure common symptoms such as inflammation, itching, and burning sensations.
- Pramoxine hydrochloride

Pramoxine hydrochloride acts as a local anaesthetic because it binds to sodium channels on free nerve endings. Zinc oxide acts to prevent irritation from any form of chafing and as an astringent. The lubricating agents cetyl alcohol and glycerine protect the hemorrhoid tissue from further damage.
Clean and carefully dry the affected area using warm water and a mild soap. Apply the ointment to the area up to five times per day. The ointment has an applicator for easier application.

Conclusion – Tronolane Dual Action Anesthetic Cream Review
We have a few positive things to say about this hemorrhoid ointment. The ointment is not too expensive to buy and comes with an easy to use applicator. We liked that the ointment is non-scented, non-greasy, and non-staining. The active ingredients might provide some benefits in the treatment of hemorrhoids by lessening inflammation and numbing pain through its local anesthetic agent. Among the negative comments that we have are that there is no guarantee nor return policy provided by the manufacturer. There is no bulk buying nor first time customer incentive. If using the product up to 5 times a day, a 1 oz tube of cream could run out very quickly and therefore making the $6.25 purchase seem high. The instructions do not state how long to use the ointment for or how much to apply to the affected area. The reviews that we read on Amazon indicated that there were very mixed results. Many people stated that they did not see a marked improvement in their hemorrhoid or that the benefits of the ointment were too slow or minimal to make the product worthwhile to recommend. We recommend that you look for a better product that has the backing of a reliable guarantee and return policy and one that offers bulk buying and more positive, trusted reviews.
