Q: How does P COOL CREAM work?
A: P COOL CREAM contains calamine, lignocaine (lidocaine), and phenylephrine. Calamine relieves itching and soothes the skin. When applied to the skin, the aqueous component of calamine lotion evaporates. The heat required for evaporation is taken from the body, which gives a cooling effect at the site of application.
Calamine has antibacterial properties, which help prevent infections. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that shrinks swollen blood vessels. Enlarged blood vessels result in piles, so phenylephrine helps treat the symptoms of burning, itching, and swelling associated with piles. Lidocaine blocks the pain alerts from the nerves to the brain, thereby decreasing the feeling of pain.
