Germoloids is an over-the-counter haemorrhoid (piles) treatment that contains an anaesthetic. Germoloids' triple action treatment shrinks piles, soothes itching, and numbs the area with a local anaesthetic.
You can buy Germoloids cream, ointment or suppositories without a prescription from Prescription Doctor’s online pharmacy. Simply complete our online form for our pharmacy team to review. All items are dispatched from our pharmacy in secure and discreet packaging to maintain your privacy.
If your order is approved before 3 pm on weekdays, our pharmacy can dispatch it the same day for next-day delivery.
Germoloids is used to treat the symptoms of haemorrhoids (piles) including:
Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen blood vessels that develop in and around your anus.
Haemorrhoids can be very unpleasant and painful but can be easily treated with Germoloids, which is available as a cream, ointment and suppositories.
The exact cause of haemorrhoids is unknown, however, straining when you are on the toilet due to constipation can lead to haemorrhoids developing.
Pregnant women may also experience haemorrhoids in their third trimester due to the increasing pressure on the pelvis and an increase in blood volume.
All forms of Germoloids contain two active ingredients; Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Zinc Oxide, which work together to treat haemorrhoids.
Lidocaine Hydrochloride is a local anaesthetic that reduces the swelling and numbs the sensations of pain and itching.
Zinc Oxide has astringent properties, which helps to reduce painful swelling and shrink the haemorrhoids. It also has antiseptic properties, which help to protect the skin around the anus from infection.
Germoloids suppositories are inserted into the rectum and are usually more suitable for treating internal haemorrhoids. These types of haemorrhoids are deeper inside and tend not to cause too much pain or discomfort.
Germoloids cream and ointment are applied directly on and around the anal area, to provide relief from external haemorrhoids. These haemorrhoids can be very sensitive and painful as they are close to the skin around the anus, where there are more pain-detecting nerve endings. If they prolapse, you may feel bulges or bumps near your anus.
Before you use Germoloids, always read and follow the instructions on the packaging, or given by your doctor. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure about any of the instructions.
Germoloids cream and ointment are applied topically to the affected area.
Do not use Germoloids cream more than 4 times in any 24 hours.
Germoloids suppositories are inserted into the back passage.
Do not use more than 4 Germoloids suppositories in any 24 hours.
If you are unsure which formulation is the most suitable for your condition, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.
You do not put Germoloids into your mouth or swallow. If you accidentally swallow Germoloids, seek medical attention ASAP.
Before using Germoloids, you must read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine. This leaflet contains instructions on using and storing Germoloids, as well as information regarding the safety of Germoloids.
If you have any doubts about anything you read in the patient information leaflet, speak to a doctor or pharmacist. You can also send a message to one of our online doctors.
Germoloids may not be suitable for everyone.
Do not use Germoloids Cream or Suppositories if you are allergic to zinc oxide, lidocaine, or any of the other ingredients listed within the patient information leaflet.
Speak to your doctor before using Germoloids Cream or Suppositories if you:
If you are unsure whether Germoloids are suitable for you, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
Every medicine carries the risk of side effects. Not everybody who takes the medicine will experience side effects.
It’s important to look out for any side effects which may occur after using Germoloids.
Some people may experience irritation at the site of the application, though this is rare.
If you experience any side effects, regardless of whether they are listed in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
Germoloids Cream and Suppositories may be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, you should speak to your doctor or a pharmacist before using Germoloids.
Always speak to a doctor before using Germoloids.
If you have any questions about the medicine or your condition, you can send a message to one of our online doctors.
Do not use Germoloids past the expiry date printed on the packaging.
Never dispose of medicine via household or water waste, as this damages the environment. Take any unwanted or expired medicine to your local pharmacy and ask them to throw it away for you.
Always store medicines out of sight and reach from children and pets.
Never share your medicines with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms or have the same condition as you.
If you forget to use Germoloids when you should, use it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue to use Germoloids as normal.
If you apply too much ointment or cream, wipe away the excess with a clean tissue and discard it in the bin. Do not use more than one suppository at a time. Using more Germoloids treatments will not treat your haemorrhoids faster but may increase your risk of side effects.
While alcohol is unlikely to interact with Germoloids, you should avoid drinking excessive alcohol while treating haemorrhoids.
Germoloids should not impact your ability to drive or operate machinery. If you experience any side effects, which impair your cognitive functions, avoid such activities until you feel safe to do so.
Your doctor or pharmacist may recommend using over-the-counter treatments such as Anusol or Germoloids.
Depending on whether you have internal or external piles, your doctor will recommend the most suitable treatment. For example, external piles can be treated with a cream or ointment, while internal piles may be treated with suppositories.
There are also a few other things you can do alongside using your Germoloids suppository/Germoloids cream, to avoid making your haemorrhoids worse. These include:
