Can Faktu ointment be used for hemorrhoids after constipation?

I would like to know the correct application of Faktu ointment please. Sometimes i experience constipation. Yesterday, it was my vry first to experience feeling some slimy hanging on my anus. I keep on washing with anti bacterial wash and put some Elica cream and push it back. Is that hemorrhoid anal fissure? Will Faktu help? Thank you so much YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Faktu is a medicine that contains cinchocaine and policresulen. It belongs to a group of medicines for the treatment of hemorrhoids.
Policresulen protects and heals the damaged tissue and Cinchocaine has a role to reduce the pain and itching due to hemorrhoids.
Faktu ointment should be applied to the affected area 2-3 times a day using the applicator that comes with the ointment and should be used after emptying the bowel.
To know weather your condition is hemorrhoids or anal fissures, you need to get per-rectal examination by consulting Surgeon. Accordingly, other mode of treatment can be instituted, if necessary.
Kindly maintain good personal hygiene and avoid constipation by consuming soft diet, diet rich in fibres and consuming adequate quantities of fluids.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
