What does Proctofoam HC do? 

Proctofoam, with the generic name pramoxine hydrochloride, is a topical anesthetic indicated to treat the signs of symptoms of rectal irritation or hemorrhoids. It relieves itching and pain due to the inflammation and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses in the anal region. 

This is available in Proctofoam (protamine hydrochloride) 1% hemorrhoidal foam. 

How does Proctofoam HC work? 

This local anesthetic works by interfering with the transmission of impulses along sensory nerve fibers, which results in the relief of irritation, itching, and pain. It blocks the initiation and conduction of nerve impulses from sensory nerves by decreasing the permeability of the neuronal membrane to sodium ions. This action stabilizes the membrane and hinders depolarization which results in the failure of propagated action potential and subsequent conduction blockade.
