Germoloids Suppositories are used to relieve the symptoms of pain, swelling and irritation associated with internal haemorrhoids and anal itching (pruritus ani). 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
Insert one suppository into the anus when you go to bed at night and one in the morning, preferably after the bowel movement. If necessary the suppositories may be used at any time during day, with a minimum of 3 to 4 hours between suppositories.
Do not use more than 4 times in any 24 hour period.
If symptoms persist consult your doctor.
Wash your hands thoroughly before and after application.
Germoloids suppositories are not recommended for children under 12 years.
