The good news: there are lots of ways to get yourself feeling better quickly.
An effective treatment and a few small changes to your daily routine can really work wonders. You can buy a variety of treatments from local pharmacies and major supermarkets. If you'd prefer, you can also buy them online – they'll arrive within a couple of days in an unmarked package.
In most cases, the symptoms of piles will clear up within a week or two.
The ANUSOL™ range includes options to suit virtually every need when it comes to piles. Whether you use cream, ointment, suppositories or a combination of applications, they provide effective, soothing relief from discomfort and irritation.
Pile treatment creams help shrink piles and reduce the itching and swelling associated with less severe piles. These products are also mild antiseptics, so they help discourage growth of bacteria cells as well.
To use, simply rub the cream directly onto the outside of your anus. ANUSOL™ Cream also has lubricating properties for use alongside suppositories.
Ointments work largely the same way as creams and contain similar ingredients. The main difference is consistency and feel, and you can alternate them based on your personal preferences. Along with creams, they are to be used for less severe piles.
Because they're a tad greasy, you may find they help relieve sore, dry skin too.
Suppositories are inserted directly into the anus to deliver medication straight to the piles to help shrink them, soothe itching and relieve pain and discomfort. They are most appropriate for internal piles, and can be used alongside creams.
