Description

Germoloids HC Spray relieves the symptoms of external haemorrhoids (piles) which include pain, itching and irritation immediately around the anus

Piles (also known as haemorrhoids) are swollen or enlarged blood vessels, which can cause varying degrees of discomfort, itching and irritation, particularly after a bowel movement. They may be either internal (inside the anus) or external (outside the anus).

Germoloids HC Spray contains Hydrocortisone and Lidocaine hydrochloride:

Hydrocortisone is one of a group of substances called steroids (which should not be confused with "anabolic steroid" tablets or injections misused by some athletes), and occurs naturally in the body. Topical steroids have been shown to reduce the itching, redness and inflammation of certain skin problems.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is a local anaesthetic and is included in Germoloids HC Spray to relieve pain.
Directions
How to use Germoloids HC Spray

Germoloids HC Spray is supplied in a collapsible laminate tube fitted with a metered dose pump spray, which is ozone-friendly. Prime the pump by depressing its top once or twice before initial use.
Parting your buttocks if necessary, spray once over the affected area up to three times daily, depending on the severity of your condition. The spray can be used at any angle.
Wash hands and replace cap after use.
During your treatment: You may experience tingling at the site of application when the spray is first applied. This is normal and only temporary. Rarely, some people experience more persistent discomfort and irritation. If this occurs stop using Germoloids HC Spray and consult your doctor. If you are in any doubt about the treatment, or notice any side-effects, you should talk to a doctor or pharmacist.

Contents
Germoloids HC Spray contains two active ingredients: Hydrocortisone (0.2% w/w) and lidocaine hydrochloride (1% w/w).

It also contains: cetomacrogol 1000, citric acid, sodium citrate, propyl gallate, phenoxyethanol and purified water as inactive ingredients.

Warnings
Do Not Use Germoloids HC Spray :

if sensitive to lidocaine (also known as Iignocaine( or any of the other ingredients
on broken or infected skin
internally (inside the anus)
anywhere other than the anal area
if you are pregnant, breast feeding or under 16 years of age.
For your safety:

Germoloids HC Spray should be used for limited periods only:

Do not use it continuously for more than 7 days.
If your condition does not improve or gets worse consult your doctor.
It is very important to obtain medical advice if you have persistent pain or bleeding from the anus, particularly if there has been a change in your bowel habit, if your stomach is swollen or bloated, you hove abdominal pain or if you are losing weight.

Do not delay in consulting a doctor if you have these symptoms, as you may require prompt treatment.

Do not use if you are already using another product containing a steroid (e.g. prednisolone, beclometasone, betamethasone,z dexamethasone), unless your doctor has said that you can use both products together. If you are not sure check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep the spray away from your eyes, nose and mouth.
In exceptional circumstances, if steroids such as hydrocortisone are used excessively, thinning of the skin may occur. The symptoms are normally reversible when treatment is stopped.

One of Germoloids HC Spray's active ingredients, hydrocortisone, occurs naturally as part of the normal function of the body. Theoretically, if Germoloids HC Spray is used excessively for long periods, it could suppress this natural process, although no such problem has ever been reported.

It is possible to develop an allergy to either lidocaine or hydrocortisone, in which case the use of Germoloids HC Spray will make the skin even more sore and itchy. If this happens, the spray should no longer be used.
