How Effective Is Uniroid HC Cream?

Uniroid HC Cream provides short-term relief of pain, irritation, and itching around the anus. Its active ingredients are hydrocortisone and cinchocaine hydrochloride. Hydrocortisone soothes and relieves the irritation and inflammation of the skin. Cinchocaine hydrochloride is a local anaesthetic which provides relief from pain and discomfort. 

It may be used on external and internal haemorrhoids and may be used alone or in conjunction with suppositories. Uniroid HC Cream is generally used for 7 days unless prescribed for longer by the doctor. 

During a haemorrhoid flare-up, it is essential to keep the stool soft by consuming a diet high in fibre and plenty of fluids. Your doctor or pharmacist may also suggest the use of faecal softeners. This is because the passing of stools by haemorrhoids may cause pain and bleed, and constipation will make the situation worse. 

The bowel movements should not be delayed, and the raising of feet onto a step stool when sitting on the toilet may allow easier passage of stools. 

It may help to use wet tissues and avoid over-wiping with toilet paper. A sitz bath will ease some of the discomforts following a bowel movement. The patient may soak the inflamed area in warm water for 10-15 minutes two or three times per day.

What dose should I choose?

How should I use Uniroid HC Cream?

Internal haemorrhoids should be treated by applying the cream with the nozzle applicator provided. External haemorrhoids should be treated by applying with clean fingers, without the use of the nozzle applicator.

Using without applicator:Hands should be washed thoroughly, and a small quantity of the ointment applied onto a finger. The ointment should be spread onto the affected area without rubbing. The ointment should not be applied with toilet paper. Hands should be washed thoroughly afterwards.

Using with applicator:

The nozzle applicator should be used for internal haemorrhoids in order to ease application. The nozzle applicator should be cleaned thoroughly with warm soapy water before and after each use. It should be screwed onto the end of the ointment tube and inserted fully into the back passage.

Then the tube should be squeezed gently from the lower end while simultaneously pulling it out of the back passage. The nozzle applicator should then be unscrewed and washed. 

The hands should also be washed thoroughly after application of the ointment.

The area should not be covered with bandages or plasters or any other dressing. It is safe to cover the area with undergarments and clothes.
