Zinc oxide has astringent properties, which help to shrink swelling. It also helps soothe and protect the area around the back passage from damage and has mild antiseptic properties. Lidocaine is a local anaesthetic which helps to soothe swelling, pain and irritation and relieve itching. The ointment base acts as a lubricant and emollient to help the passing of stools and reduce the straining which is bad for piles (haemorrhoids).
Germoloids ointment is a thick formulation which helps protect the skin around the anus. For those who prefer the same ingredients in a thinner formulation, try Germoloids cream.
