Germoloids Ointment contains the active ingredients zinc oxide and lidocaine hydrochloride. Zinc oxide is an antiseptic that has soothing and protective properties, while lidocaine is a local anaesthetic which helps relieve pain and itching. Germoloids Ointment also includes antiseptic properties, which act as a lubricant to aid the passing of stools whilst reducing straining bowel movements.
When it comes to choosing Germoloids Ointment or Germoloids Cream, it is simply a matter of personal preference. You can rest assured that both have the same active ingredients; however the ointment base has a slightly thicker formulation than the cream base, with lubricating properties.
Wash your hands before and after using the ointment. Gently clean and dry the area around the anus. Apply ointment twice a day at minimum of 3-4 hourly intervals preferably after a bowel movement. Further applications can be made at any time of the day. Maximum 4 applications in 24 hours.
