More information about Uniroid-HC

What is 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’.

How does it work?

Haemorrhoids can cause very uncomfortable symptoms such as:

  • itching
  • pain
  • discharge
  • bleeding

Uniroid-HC contains cinchocaine hydrochloride and hydrocortisone. These are two active ingredients that alleviate the above symptoms.

  • cinchocaine hydrochloride - this is a local anaesthetic that will temporarily numb the area it is applied to, providing immediate relief from pain and itching
  • hydrocortisone - a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation, which is the main cause of symptoms

Please note - for best results, this treatment should be combined with dietary changes. Consult your doctor for more information.

How do I use Uniroid-HC ointment and suppositories?

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.

Ointment

For external haemorrhoids:

  • squeeze a pea size amount onto your finger
  • spread gently over the skin
  • do not rub the ointment in
  • do not use tissue to apply Uniroid-HC ointment

For internal haemorrhoids*:

*You will have to use the applicator for internal piles.

  • clean the applicator with warm soapy water before each use
  • screw the nozzle on to the tube
  • fill the nozzle with the ointment
  • this is the correct dosage for one application
  • insert the nozzle into the anus slowly - the whole nozzle should be inside
  • squeeze the tube gently
  • withdraw the nozzle
  • wash nozzle thoroughly ready for next use

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

Suppositories can only be used for internal haemorrhoids.

Avoid over-handling suppositories.

  1. remove foil wrapper.
  2. moisten the suppository with water or water-based lubricating jelly.
  3. lie on your left side, and bend your right knee up toward your chest. Gently push the suppository into your rectum

You should insert suppositories twice daily (once in the morning, once in the evening) and once after every bowel movement.

What dosages are available?

  • the suppositories are available in packs of 10 or 12 - each suppository contains 5mg of the active ingredients
  • the ointment is available in a 30g tube (15g tubes are also available)

The quantities have been formulated by the manufacturer in order to maximise potency, whilst minimising any possible side effects.

What are the possible side effects?

Side effects are not a common occurrence with Uniroid-HC. However, as a prescription treatment, there is always a chance. The most commonly reported are:

  • adrenal suppression (risk increases with overuse)
  • skin reactions
  • vision disorders

If you experience any adverse effects, you should inform your doctor ASAP.

Likewise, if you suffer a serious allergic reaction to the medication, you should seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms of allergic reactions include rashes, facial and throat swelling and breathing issues.

Who can use this treatment?

Most adults with piles can use this treatment, although there may be certain cases where the treatment may be unsuitable. This is the case for anyone with:

  • allergies to hydrocortisone or steroids
  • allergies to cinchocaine or local anaesthetics
  • any infection on the area of application (including viral infections affecting skin)

There are other treatment options available for haemorrhoids. If any of the above apply to you, please ask your doctor about alternatives.

What precautions should I take?

If you have ever had a bad reaction to this treatment, pay close attention to how you react.

You should avoid this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding (unless your doctor has recommended it especially).

When using the ointment, do not bandage the area of application.

For more information about side effects, interactions and precautions, please refer to the patient information leaflet, which is included with your order.
