There are some simple steps you can take to help prevent piles such as drinking plenty of water and eating a high-fibre diet such as pasta, bread, rice, fresh fruit and vegetables. Also – avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise.
There are many very effective treatments for piles available. Treating yourself with a suitable product can often mean that you’ll clear up the problem.
You may prefer to use Germoloids HC Spray – the convenient spray treatment for piles. The spray is easy to use and has a non-touch application. The soothing and cooling formulation can simply be sprayed onto the area with no mess. It also reduces the risk of cross-infection and is more hygienic to use. Its convenient and portable format means you can keep it close so it's there when you need it.
In addition to its local anaesthetic content which helps to soothe the pain fast, HC Spray contains hydrocortisone, which works as an anti-inflammatory to help reduce swelling.
Due to the hydrocortisone formulation, you will have to ask the pharmacist for Germoloids HC Spray as it is kept behind the counter.
Germoloids treatments are available in a variety of other formats. Please see The Germoloids range for further information.
If piles are bad enough to cause you a lot of pain or interfere with your daily life, then you must seek medical advice.
