Having Piles once doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get them again. There’s a lot you can do to help keep them away. And a few little changes can make a huge difference.

Piles can develop when there’s too much pressure on the abdomen. In some instances, like when you’re pregnant, this extra weight is hard to avoid. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to prevent piles coming on or making a comeback.

  • Eat lots of high-fibre foods to keep things moving as they should. Bump up your brown rice, wholemeal bread, vegetable and fruit intake, and minimise the things that bind you up, especially refined and processed foods like cakes and biscuits.
  • Drink plenty of fluids, especially water and fruit juices. But cut back on the coffee and alcohol – they can dehydrate you, and cause constipation.
  • Taking regular light exercise
  • Go to the toilet when you need to and don’t wait.

In most cases, your symptoms will clear up within a week or two. If they do not then please call us for more information and advice on HALO : a fast and effective Day Case Treatment for Haemorrhoids.

One of the unfortunate results of Pregnancy can be Piles…your body has been undergoing a huge change over the last few months and as a New Mum, your Piles should be the last thing on your mind. There are many treatments and creams available over the counter for the immediate relief, but if they are persistent then we can help.

With an effective treatment working to relieve your symptoms, you can do even more to minimise your discomfort:

  • Wash your bottom with unperfumed soap after each bowel movement. Then dry off thoroughly by gently patting with a soft towel.
  • Wear loose, cotton underwear instead of synthetic fibres to keep the area as dry as possible.
  • Avoid using talcum powder.
  • Don’t stay standing or sitting longer than you have to. A warm bath can help with itching. You may find an ice pack does the trick as well.

In most cases, your symptoms will clear up within a week or two. If they do not then please call us for more information and advice on HALO : a fast and effective Day Case Treatment for Haemorrhoids.
