Preparation H Suppositories Overview


Preparation H suppository is an over the counter medication used to provide prompt, soothing relief from painful burning, itching, discomfort, and reduce internal swelling.

It is a single product containing 2 ingredients: cocoa butter and phenylephrine.

Common side effects of Preparation H suppository include mild pain or stinging.
