What Are Germoloids Suppositories?

Germoloids Suppositories contain a unique triple action formula which provides local anaesthetic pain relief, soothes itching and shrinks piles. They provide fast and effective relief from from piles (haemorrhoids) and anal itching. Haemorrhoids are swolen or enlarged blood vessels, which can cause discomfort, itching and irritation, particularly after a bowel movement. They may be internal or external. Germoloids suppositories are used to provide relief from internal haemorrhoids. The suppositories contain two active substances, zinc oxide and lidocaine. Zinc oxide 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 is a local anaesthetic, which helps to soothe swelling, pain and irritation and relieve itching. The suppository base acts as a lubricant and emollient to help the passing of stools and reduce straining during bowel movement which is bad for haemorrhoids

How To Use Germoloids Suppositories

Wash your hands before and after using the suppository. Adults and children aged 12 years and over: The suppositories are only for use inside the anus.

  • Gently clean and dry the area around the anus.
