What is Uniroid-HC?

Uniroid-HC is a haemorrhoid treatment which contains hydrocortisone and cinchocaine. These two ingredients reduce the symptoms of haemorrhoids including:

  • Discomfort
  • Inflammation
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Swelling

How do haemorrhoids form?

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:

  • People over the age of 45
  • People who spend extended periods of time sitting
  • People with a family history of haemorrhoids
  • Pregnant women

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.

How does Uniroid-HC work?

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.

How do I use Uniroid-HC?

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.

Side effects and cautions of Uniroid-HC

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:

  • Suppression of the adrenal gland if used for longer than 7 days.

Report any and all side effects to your doctor or pharmacist.

What should I do if I experience an allergic reaction to this medication?

  • Swelling of the lips, face, tongue or throat

Will Uniroid-HC interact with any of the medicine I currently take?

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.

Who should not use Uniroid-HC?

Do not use Uniroid-HC if you:

  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients
  • Are allergic to cinchocaine, or to any other local anaesthetics
  • Are allergic to hydrocortisone, or to any other steroids
