Rectogesic is intended for treating anal fissures.

Hemorrhoids are best treated with banding or a HALRA procedure where a somewhat 'mechanical' therapy is needed - essentially these are big veins that need to be trimmed off or the source of blood to them cut off at the base. Topical therapies do not treat these. Indeed as Rupert has pointed out Rectogesic is for anal fissures. At our clinic we have also got access to topical anaesthetic combinations much improved than rectogesic creams.
