Treatment of Piles

If you've got piles, you should know that one in two people across the UK will understand exactly how you feel. It can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and even painful.

If you've got piles, you should know that one in two people across the UK will understand exactly how you feel. It can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and even painful.

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.

So how do you know which format to go with?

  • Creams are good for treating internal and external piles.
  • Ointments can also be used for either – and because they're a tad greasy, you may find they help relieve sore, dry skin too.
  • Suppositories are ideal for treating internal piles, ensuring a full dose of medication gets as close to the trouble spot as possible.
