What is Germoloids Ointment?

Germoloids Ointment is an ointment that helps to treat haemorrhoids or piles by working directly on the affected area. It helps to soothe the area while shrinking swelling and relieving pain. Ideal for anyone suffering from irritation caused by haemorrhoids or piles.

 

What causes haemorrhoids or piles?

Nobody knows the exact cause for haemorrhoids, also known as piles. There are a couple of things that are thought to cause piles, the most common of which being straining too much when you use the toilet. You might do this when you’re suffering from constipation.

 

How does Germoloids Ointment treat haemorrhoids or piles?

Germoloids Ointment contains two active ingredients which work together to treat piles and ease your symptoms. The first is zinc oxide, which helps to shrink swelling and protects the affected area from further damage. The second is lidocaine, a local anaesthetic which helps to relieve pain while relieving symptoms of itching and irritation. Germoloids Ointment also acts as a lubricant, making it easier for you to pass a bowel movement.

 

How to use Germoloids Ointment

Wash your hands before and after using Germoloids Ointment. For external haemorrhoids, gently apply the ointment to the affected area. For internal haemorrhoids, use the included applicator nozzle to insert some Germoloids Ointment into the back passage. Clean nozzle after each use. Apply to the affected area at least twice a day, but do not use more than 4 times in 24 hours.

 

When should Germoloids Ointment not be used?

Germoloids Ointment is not suitable for children under the age of 12. Do not use Germoloids Ointment if you are allergic to zinc oxide, lidocaine, or any of the ingredients listed. If you suffer from regular haemorrhoids, extreme haemorrhoids, or excessive bleeding, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using Germoloids Ointment.

Like all medicines, Germoloids Ointment can have side effects, although not everyone will get them. After you have applied Germoloids Ointment, you may experience:

  • Increased irritation
  • Burning sensation
  • Rashes

Seems to relieve the stinging pain but not to cure or shrink the piles.

Can I take two painkillers at once?

Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.

This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?

If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.
