Uniroid-HC is a haemorrhoid treatment which contains hydrocortisone and cinchocaine. These two ingredients reduce the symptoms of haemorrhoids including:
Haemorrhoids, commonly known as piles, are formed when blood vessels surrounding the anus become inflamed. They can make going to the toilet a difficult endeavour, or cause rectal bleeding.
People at an increased risk of developing haemorrhoids include:
In many cases, haemorrhoids are painless and often go away on their own within a few days. However, some people may experience pain and discomfort from their haemorrhoids. For these cases, medicines can be sought to treat the symptoms.
Uniroid-HC ointment contains two active ingredients which work in conjunction to relieve the pain and discomfort of piles.
Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid which reduces the inflammation in the blood vessels. It works by inhibiting the production of inflammatory chemicals in nearby cells.
Cinchocaine is a local anaesthetic which works by temporarily desensitising the nerves around the affected area.
Uniroid-HC ointment is applied directly to the area inside and around the anus.
Always wash your hands before and after using Uniroid-HC.
If you are using the internal applicator nozzle, wash the nozzle with warm soapy water before and after each use.
For external use, squeeze a small pea-sized amount of the ointment onto your fingertip and spread it onto the affected area without rubbing it in. Do not use toilet paper to apply to the ointment.
For internal use, screw the provided plastic nozzle onto the tube. Insert the whole nozzle into the back passage. Gently squeeze the tube while pulling the tube out.
Do not apply a gauze (dressing) after using Uniroid-HC as this can cause unnecessary discomfort and irritation.
All medicines can cause side effects, though not everybody gets them. Understanding the risks associated with your medicine is important to your care.
Possible side effects include:
Report any and all side effects to your doctor or pharmacist. You can also report your side effects online using the Yellow card Scheme.
If you experience an allergic reaction to this medicine, inform your doctor straight away. Seek emergency medical attention if necessary.
Signs of an allergic reaction may include:
Please inform our prescribers of all the medicines you are taking, including those bought with or without prescription and health supplements. Some medications may affect the way Uniroid-HC works.
Do not use Uniroid-HC if you:
Do not use the ointment if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding. Speak to your doctor for further advice on taking medicine while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Uniroid-HC should not affect your ability to drive or operate machinery.
The ointment contains ceotstearyl alcohol which may cause local skin reactions, such as contact dermatitis.
Always keep medicines out of the sight and reach of children.
Store Uniroid-HC ointment below 25 °C.
If you forget to use Uniroid-HC, take it as soon as you remember.
If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your normal schedule of treatment.
Do not apply more ointment to make up for the missed dose.
If you apply more ointment to external haemorrhoids than intended, wipe away the excess with cotton wool.
If you accidentally insert too much ointment, or if you or somebody else swallows any of the ointment, tell your doctor, pharmacist or nearest hospital casualty department immediately. Take the ointment tube with you so that healthcare providers can see what you have used or taken. Do this even if you feel well.
Using more ointment will not clear up your symptoms faster, but may increase your risk of side effects.
If you accidentally get any of the ointment in your eyes, rinse your eyes with water. Contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
If the pain persists, contact your nearest casualty department. Take the medicine and it's packaging with you.
