Germoloids Ointment

Germoloids Ointment relieves the symptoms of pain, swelling and irritation associated with internal and external haemorrhoids and anal itching (pruritus ani). It also acts as a lubricant to ease the passing of stools to reduce straining which can make the piles or haemorrhoids worse. Germoloids Ointment contains:
  • Zinc Oxide: This has astringent properties (causes contraction when applied to the skin), which help to shrink swelling. It also helps to soothe and protect the area around the anus from damage and has mild antiseptic properties.
  • Lidocaine: A local anaesthetic which helps to soothe swelling, pain and irritation and relieve itching. 
  • Adults and children aged 12 years and over: Apply the ointment to the affected area at least twice a day with a minimum of 3 to 4 hours between applications. Further applications can be made at any time of the day, and are particularly recommended after a bowel movement. Do not use the ointment more than 4 times in any 24 hour period.
  • Children under 12 years: Not recommended, unless it is used under the supervision of a doctor.
Wash your hands before and after using the ointment.
  • For external haemorrhoids: Apply the ointment directly to the affected area.
  • For internal haemorrhoids: Screw the applicator nozzle onto the tube and smear some of the ointment on the outside of the nozzle to ease application. Carefully insert the applicator into the opening of the anus. Gently squeeze the tube whilst slowly withdrawing the nozzle so that the ointment moves gently up the anus.
  • Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 6.6% w/w and Lidocaine Hydrochloride 0.7% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Yellow Soft Paraffin, Wool Fat, Methyl Salicylate, Propylene Glycol and Menthol.
  • Germoloids Ointment contains wool fat and propylene glycol which may cause local skin reactions (e.g. irritation, contact dermatitis).
Do not use Germoloids Ointment:
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to zinc oxide or lidocaine, or any of the other ingredients in the product.
  • For children under 12 years, unless directed to by your doctor.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Germoloids Ointment:
  • If you continually suffer from haemorrhoids or have severe haemorrhoids.
  • If you experience excessive bleeding.
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You may use the ointment, but as with all medicines at this time, you should discuss it with your doctor first.
