About Germoloids

Germoloids Ointment is a treatment for piles (haemorrhoids). It is one of the most popular treatments for piles available at Express Chemist.

Germoloids Ointment contains zinc oxide, which helps to shrink piles by reducing the swelling. In addition, Germoloids ointment contains lidocaine, which is a powerful anaesthetic. This helps to provide relief from the pain and itching associated with piles.
