What is Uniroid-HC used for?

Uniroid-HC is a haemorrhoid treatment that contains hydrocortisone and cinchocaine.

Both active ingredients work to reduce the symptoms of haemorrhoids, such as:

  • Discomfort
  • Inflammation
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Swelling

With Prescription Doctor, you can order Uniroid-HC online and have it delivered directly to your door. Our pharmacy offers a fast and discreet next-day delivery service on orders approved before 3pm on weekdays.

What are haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids, commonly known as piles, are formed when blood vessels surrounding the anus become inflamed. They can make passing stools a difficult endeavour, or sometimes 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.

There are also a number of ways you can prevent haemorrhoids, including drinking plenty of water, eating a healthy and balanced diet enriched with fibre, and exercising regularly.

How does Uniroid-HC work?

Uniroid-HC ointment contains two active ingredients which work together to relieve the pain and discomfort of haemorrhoids.

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 numbing the nerves around the affected area.

How long does Uniroid-HC take to work?

Uniroid-HC works quickly to provide fast and effective relief from itching and discomfort.

However, it can take a few days for the swelling to reduce.

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 piles:

Squeeze a 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 the ointment.

For internal piles:

Uniroid-HC cream comes with an applicator nozzle for internal application.

  1. Screw the provided plastic applicator nozzle onto the tube. Insert the whole nozzle into the back passage.
  2. Gently squeeze the tube while pulling the nozzle out.
  3. Wipe the nozzle after every use.

Do not apply a gauze (dressing) after using Uniroid-HC as this can cause unnecessary discomfort and irritation.

Uniroid-HC suppositories are inserted into the back passage.

Avoid handling the suppository too much, as they are designed to melt at body temperature.

  1. Take one suppository from the packaging and tear it away from the strip.
  2. While holding the suppository upright, so that the tip is pointing to the ceiling, carefully peel away the foil wrapping.
  3. Lie on your left side with your right knee brought up to your waist.
  4. Carefully insert the suppository into the back passage (anus).
  5. Wash your hands after inserting the suppository.

What should I do if I forget to use Uniroid-HC?

If you forget to use Uniroid-HC, use 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 use more Uniroid-HC ointment or suppositories to make up for the missed dose.

What should I do if I use too much Uniroid-HC?

If you apply more Uniroid-HC ointment to external haemorrhoids than intended, wipe away the excess with cotton wool.

If you accidentally insert too much Uniroid-HC ointment, or insert more than one suppository, or if you or somebody else swallows any of the ointment, tell your doctor, pharmacist or nearest hospital casualty department immediately.

Take the Uniroid-HC ointment tube with you so that healthcare providers can see what you have used or taken.

Using more Uniroid-HC ointment will not clear up your symptoms faster, but may increase your risk of side effects.

Side effects and cautions of Uniroid-HC

Before you use Uniroid-HC, you must read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine. The patient information leaflet contains instructions on how to use, store, and discard Uniroid-HC safely.

All medicines can cause side effects, though not everybody gets them. It's important to familiarise yourself with the safety information found within the patient information leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medicine. The patient information leaflet contains important information on how to use and store Uniroid-HC, as well as other important information regarding its safety.

With prolonged use, Uniroid-HC can suppress the adrenal gland. If you use Uniroid-HC regularly, speak to your doctor for more information.

A complete list of side effects and cautions can be found in the patient information leaflet (PIL) supplied with your medicine.

If you experience any side effects of using Uniroid-HC, regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, report them to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.

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

If you experience an allergic reaction to Uniroid-HC, go straight to your nearest accident and emergency department. Remember to take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you, so that doctors treating you know exactly what you took.

Signs of an allergic reaction may include:

  • Breathing problems
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Rash
  • Swelling of the lips, face, tongue or throat

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