Also known as haemorrhoids, piles are swollen varicose veins inside and around the rectum and anus. It’s a very common problem that doesn’t always come with symptoms, but left untreated piles can become very uncomfortable, painful and itchy, and may even bleed too.
To treat piles at home, you can use piles cream treatments and pain relief available from Rowlands Pharmacy. Our range of treatments for piles includes creams, ointments and suppositories by Germaloids and Preparation H, that are easy to use and discreet to order online.
Some lifestyle changes may also help to reduce your symptoms of piles or stop them from returning. These include increasing the fibre in your diet, drinking more water and less caffeine to make your stools easier to pass; not delaying emptying your bowels for extended periods of time; not ‘straining’ when you do empty your bowels; and losing excess weight and exercising regularly to lower your blood pressure and strain on the blood vessels around your rectum.
