How Do Proctosedyl Suppositories Work? Proctosedyl ointment and suppositories contain hydrocortisone, a steroid, and cinchocaine hydrochloride, a local anesthetic. These work together to reduce swelling and itchiness and numb pain. Proctosedyl suppositories work by temporarily blocking the pathway of pain messages along nerve fibers. This numbs sensation in the area where the medicine has been applied. It produces relief from pain and itching resulting from hemorrhoids, rectal fissures, and lumps.
