Anorectal preparations are products that contain a combination of an anti-inflammatory agent, or a pain reliever, and a local anesthetic as a suppository, or an ointment. External or internal hemorrhoids are treated by the topical application of anorectal preparations. Hemorrhoids are masses or lumps of tissue in the anus that contain enlarged blood vessels. The formation of hemorrhoids is due to an increase in abdominal pressure. Frequent constipation, which is likely to lead to repeated straining to have a bowel movement, pregnancy, obesity, and repeated episodes of diarrhea are possible causes of the formation of hemorrhoids.
External hemorrhoids are formed just outside the anal opening. The symptoms include discomfort, bothersome protrusions, or swelling. Sometimes there may be development of a blood clot, known as thrombosis, mostly caused after the period of constipation or diarrhea. Internal hemorrhoids are formed just inside the anal canal. The symptoms include intermittent mucous discharge or bleeding, usually with bowel movements. The internal hemorrhoids are usually painless. Many patients may have both the external and internal hemorrhoids.
The other conditions that can be treated by the use of anorectal preparations include psoriasis, diaper rash, dermatological disorders, dermatitis, condylomata acuminata, and anal itching. Psoriasis is an inflammation of the skin, characterized by frequent episodes of silvery scales, dry, thick, itching, and redness on the skin. The synonyms of psoriasis include pustular psoriasis, palmo-plantar psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, guttate psoriasis, and erythrodermic psoriasis. Diaper rash is the irritation caused in the diaper area. Irritation commonly occurs secondary to chronic moisture to the skin. Condylomata acuminata is a skin disease caused by a virus due to the formation of soft wart-like growth on the genitals. In adults, the disease is considered to be a sexually-transmitted disease.
Increasing prevalence of psoriasis, diaper rash, hemorrhoids, dermatological disorders, dermatitis, condylomata acuminata, and anal itching is driving the global anorectal preparations market. Increasing research and development regarding anorectal preparations across the world is propelling the anorectal preparations market. According to current studies, approximately 7.5 million people in the U.S., about?2.2% of the population, suffer from psoriasis. 125 million people all over the world, approximately 2% to 3% of the total global population, suffer from psoriasis, as stated by World Psoriasis Day Consortium.
