Question: A disadvantage of suppositories for haemorrhoids is that the active
ingredients may bypass the anal areas. Suppositories are preferred for
the treatment of haemorrhoids.

  1. C is the answer and Nickysylva is the only winner.
    When suppositories are used for the management of haemorrhoids, there is
    a probability that they may melt in the rectum, thus bypassing the anal areas.
    The active ingredients therefore do not reach the inflammation. Creams and
    ointments are preferred for the management of haemorrhoids.
