How Does Proctosedyl Ointment Work? Proctosedyl Ointment is a dual-action formula containing two active ingredients, cinchocaine hydrochloride and hydrocortisone. Cinchocaine is a local anesthetic. These medicines work by blocking the pain messages along the nerve fibres at the point of application. This prevents the pain signals from reaching the brain. The patient experiences a numbing sensation in the area where the ointment is applied. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid. These medicines work to reduce and relieve pain and inflammation. Inflammation occurs from an immune response that causes blood vessels to dilate, resulting in the affected area becoming red, itchy and swollen. Hydrocortisone reduces painful inflammation and lumps.
