How to avoid making haemorrhoids worse
If you have painful, itchy or uncomfortable haemorrhoids the very last thing you want to do is make the symptoms any worse. Eating well and drinking plenty of water, among other simple things, can make a difference. Here are a few things you can try to help manage the bothersome symptoms and feel more comfortable.
If you’re experiencing unusual symptoms during or after a bowel movement, like bright red blood on the toilet tissue, mucus on your underwear, lumps around the bottom, feeling like you still need to go, or general pain and itchiness around the anus, you might be suffering from haemorrhoids (piles).
In many cases, the symptoms of piles can be fairly mild, however, for some people they can become rather bothersome and get in the way of everyday life if they are more severe. Haemorrhoids do often go away on their own but there are also a few things you can do to help avoid making the symptoms worse.
