A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
Anorectal products generally contain a local anesthetic and a pain reliever or an anti-inflammatory agent in combination as an ointment or suppository. They are applied topically either to treat internal or external hemorrhoids. Ointments can be used on external and internal hemorrhoids, and suppositories are used inside the rectum to treat internal hemorrhoids.
Other anorectal products are agents that are used to treat genital or anal warts.
