Germoloids suppositories are a treatment for piles and haemorrhoids which works from the inside out to help relieve symptoms of piles. It helps to relieve pain and discomfort in the affected area, while soothing and reducing swelling.
Haemorrhoids, or piles, are swollen blood vessels which can be found in or around your anus. The exact cause of piles is unknown, but increased blood pressure in the area can be a factor. For example, if you strain when you’re on the toilet due to constipation, this can cause piles.
Germoloids suppositories contain two active ingredients which work together to treat piles and haemorrhoids. The first ingredient is zinc oxide, which helps to shrink swelling in the affected area. It also has mild antiseptic properties, working to soothe and protect the area. The second ingredient is Lidocaine, a local anaesthetic which soothes swelling, pain, and irritation and can also help to relieve itching. Germoloids suppositories also work as a lubricant, helping your bowel movements to pass more easily.
Gently wash and dry the area around your anus before using Germoloids suppositories and wash your hands before and after use. Remove the suppository from it’s packaging and insert into your back package, round end first. Insert one Germoloids suppository before you go to bed, one first thing in the morning, and one after you have a bowel movement. Do not use more than 4 suppositories in any 24-hour period.
Germoloids suppositories are not recommended for children under the age of 12. Germoloids suppositories are for anal use only, do not swallow or put the suppository in your mouth. Do not use Germoloids suppositories if you are allergic to zinc oxide, lidocaine, or any of the other listed ingredients. See your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using Germoloids suppositories if you have excessive bleeding, suffer from haemorrhoids frequently, or have extreme haemorrhoids.
