Buy Uniroid HC for Piles (haemorrhoids)

Uniroid-HC preparations contain 2 active ingredients: hydrocortisone and cinchocaine, which is used to treat  haemorrhoids. Hydrocortisone works to reduce inflammation, itching and torn skin around the anus. Cinchocaine is an anaesthetic used to relieve pain.

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. At Ashcroft, we only current supply the ointment.

How does Uniroid-HC work?

Uniroid HC works through its two main active ingredients: hydrocortisone (a corticosteroid) and cinchocaine (a local anesthetic). Here's how each component contributes to the effectiveness of Uniroid HC:

Hydrocortisone (Corticosteroid):

Anti-Inflammatory Action: Hydrocortisone has anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce swelling and inflammation in the affected area.

Immune System Regulation: As a corticosteroid, hydrocortisone can modulate the immune response, further contributing to the reduction of inflammation.

Cinchocaine (Local Anesthetic):

Pain Relief: Cinchocaine is a local anesthetic that provides relief from pain by numbing the nerves in the application area.

Itching and Discomfort: By blocking nerve signals, cinchocaine helps alleviate itching and discomfort associated with hemorrhoids.

Combined Effect:

The combination of these two active ingredients in Uniroid HC aims to provide comprehensive relief from the symptoms of hemorrhoids.

Hydrocortisone addresses the inflammation, while cinchocaine focuses on pain relief and reducing discomfort. This dual-action approach makes Uniroid HC effective in managing the symptoms of hemorrhoids.

How effective Uniroid HC ointment for rectal hemorrhoids?

Uniroid HC ointment is a prescription medication commonly prescribed to treat piles (haemorrhoids), lumps inside and around your bottom (anus). It is 100% effective fast acting solution for this purpose.

This treatment can be more effective, and to get the best results, it should be combined with healthy dietary changes, as recommended by healthcare providers.

Which one is the best cream: Uniroid HC or Proctosedyl?

Uniroid HC and Proctosedyl are both medications used to treat various conditions related to the ano-rectal area, but they have different compositions and are used for slightly different purposes.

Uniroid HC:

Composition: Uniroid HC contains hydrocortisone (a corticosteroid) and cinchocaine (an anesthetic).
Indications: It is primarily used for the treatment of hemorrhoids (piles), providing relief from symptoms such as pain, inflammation, and itching.

Proctosedyl:

Composition: Proctosedyl contains two active ingredients, hydrocortisone (corticosteroid) and cinchocaine (anesthetic), similar to Uniroid-HC. Additionally, it contains another component called framycetin, which is an antibiotic.

Indications: Proctosedyl is another POM treatment for hemorrhoids (Piles), particularly when there is an inflammatory component or if infection is a concern. The addition of framycetin provides antibacterial properties.

It's important to note that the choice between Uniroid HC and Proctosedyl depends on the specific needs of the patient, the nature of their condition, and the healthcare professional's recommendation.
