Cinchocaine is a local anesthetic which relieves severe pain and relaxes sphincteric spasm. Hydrocortisone acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic agent and thereby eliminates itching and inflammation. Neomycin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which eradicates most infections which may already be present or arise in lesions of the anorectal area. Esculin improves skin vasculature and is effective in management of cellulitis.
