Some people have tried to reduce bags under the eyes using haemorrhoid creams – the effect is achieved by the local anaesthetic that might even contain small amounts of adrenaline, this is to cause vaso-constriction (closing the blood vessels and reduce pain around the anus) it reduces oedema or swelling in the skin and it is this effect the users of haemorrhoid cream are after.
The unwanted side effect of the creams is it also contains a local steroid – usually Prednisolone. The effects of this with long term use on the thin skin, under the eyes can cause (ESPECIALLY in a deviated (higher pigmentation) skin )- HYPERPIGMENATION and HYPOPIGMENTATION, which are well recorded unwanted complications .
