Germoloids Cream

Germoloids Cream is a combination medication containing two active ingredients, zinc oxide, and lidocaine. It helps treat hemorrhoids (piles). The condition causes pain, swelling, and irritation around the anus after a bowel movement. Hemorrhoids can be either internal or external.


Germaloids Cream is an effective treatment for both internal and external haemorrhoids (piles). The medication contains two active ingredients to soothe and protect the area around the anus. Since it is a cream-based treatment, it acts as an emollient to aid stool passing while reducing any strains during bowel movements.

It is used to relieve the painful symptoms, swelling, and irritation caused by piles, as well as reducing swelling.

The two active ingredients in Germoloids Cream, zinc oxide and lidocaine, work together to soothe and relieve the symptoms of haemorrhoids. When applied to the skin they reduce swelling, numb sensation around the anus, and reduce pain or discomfort.

Some of the primary features of this medication include:

  • Contains Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Zinc Oxide
  • Suitable for internal and external piles
  • Applicator for easy, hygienic use
  • Suitable for vegetarians
  • Can be used during pregnancy & breastfeeding when recommended by a doctor

Germoloids Cream contains two active ingredients namely, Zinc oxide and Lidocaine. Zinc oxide has astringent properties, hence on application to the skin, it starts to cause contractions to shrink the swelling due to haemorrhoids. This ingredient is also known to soothe and protect the anal area from further damage by injecting mild antiseptic properties.

Lidocaine, on the other hand, being a local anaesthetic helps to soothe the pain, swelling, and irritation related to haemorrhoids. It also overcomes itching and since it is a cream-based medication, it helps to pass stools by reducing the straining during bowel movement.

Haemorrhoids can give rise to a lot of pain and discomfort when going to the toilet. The primary advantage of treating them with Germoloids cream is that you can get rid of such discomforts easily and quickly and numb any pain or irritation. It works at soothing the area around the anus.

For optimum results, you need to apply the cream to the affected area at least twice a day. Make sure to maintain a gap of 3 to 4 hours minimum between each application.

You can make any additional applications at any time of the day, particularly after a bowel movement. But with extra applications, make sure that you do not use the cream more than 4 times in a single day.

For adults and children aged 12 years and above, the below-mentioned steps are to be followed when applying the medication:

  • Always wash your hands before using this product
  • For external haemorrhoids, simply apply a small amount of cream directly to the affected area.
  • For internal haemorrhoids, use the applicator nozzle by screwing it onto the tube. Then smear a small amount onto the nozzle for a more comfortable application.
  • Carefully insert the applicator into your anus while gently squeezing the tube as you withdraw the nozzle slowly to move the cream inside.
  • Replace the cap firmly after use. Always keep the tube of cream, cap, and nozzle clean by washing them after each use
  • Wash your hands thoroughly again after applying the medication

Every medication should be used as per the instructions by a doctor or as mentioned on the patient information leaflet. Below are some key facts about Germoloids cream that you should keep in mind:

  • Constipation or strained bowel movements can make haemorrhoids worse and more painful. Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids, and eat enough fibre as part of a balanced diet to avoid this.
  • It is only to be used on or inside the anus and should not be ingested.

Follow the guidelines below to use the medicated cream safely. Do not use the medication if you are:

  • allergic to zinc oxide or lidocaine or any of the other ingredients listed on the patient information leaflet.
  • continually suffering from haemorrhoids or have severe haemorrhoids
  • under 12 years old
  • experiencing excessive rectal bleeding
  • pregnant or breastfeeding

You should not swallow the cream. If accidentally swallowed, go to the nearest emergency department. Similar to other medications, Germoloids cream can cause side effects. However, not every person who uses it will necessarily face them. In case you notice any pain or irritation when using the medication, or suffer from something abnormal, discontinue using the cream immediately and follow up with your doctor.
