More information about Uniroid-HC
Uniroid-HC is a versatile treatment for haemorrhoids. It is favoured by sufferers of chronic piles due to its dual-action effects - pain relief and anti-inflammatory.
This treatment is available in two forms; ointment or suppositories. The ointment is generally prescribed for external piles (however, it can be applied to internal piles with the included applicator). The suppositories are prescribed to treat internal piles.
You can buy Uniroid-HC online in both forms from HealthExpress. To begin the order process, click ‘Express Checkout’.
Haemorrhoids can cause very uncomfortable symptoms such as:
Uniroid-HC contains cinchocaine hydrochloride and hydrocortisone. These are two active ingredients that alleviate the above symptoms.
Please note - for best results, this treatment should be combined with dietary changes. Consult your doctor for more information.
For complete instructions, please consult your doctor or the patient information leaflet (PIL). The PIL can be viewed on the top right of this page. It will also be included in all orders.
You should combine this treatment with a diet high in fibre. You should also drink plenty of fluids.
Uniroid-HC is a short-term treatment that should not be used for more than seven days to avoid increasing your risk of developing serious side effects.
Whether you purchase the cream or suppositories, you should always wash your hands before using Uniroid, and you should ensure that the anus area is clean. Dry the area completely by patting so as not to aggravate the haemorrhoids further.
For external haemorrhoids:
For internal haemorrhoids*:
*You will have to use the applicator for internal piles.
As a rule of thumb, Uniroid-HC ointment should be applied twice daily (once in the morning, once in the evening) and once after every bowel movement.
If your symptoms are very severe, you can use the ointment 3-4 times on the first day.
Suppositories can only be used for internal haemorrhoids.
Avoid over-handling suppositories.
You should insert suppositories twice daily (once in the morning, once in the evening) and once after every bowel movement.
The quantities have been formulated by the manufacturer in order to maximise potency, whilst minimising any possible side effects.

There are other treatment options available for haemorrhoids. If any of the above apply to you, please ask your doctor about alternatives.
If you have ever had a bad reaction to this treatment, pay close attention to how you react.
