Thank you for visiting

You can use Anusol cream (for the pain) and Dulcolax suppositries to alleviate the pressure when passing stools. The best will however, be to have the piles surgically removed.

Kind regards

Scheriproct of Proctosedyl (ointments or suppositories) are generally the best treatments (yes they both do need scripts) but I cant think of anything effective enough for this that you can get without a script. I have this problem - yes its annoying as hell - and I have constipation and IBS and its all bugging me at the moment - I find sitting in a warm bath or putting a warm face cloth on the area soothes it a lot.

Anusol might work for you - its OTC - it didnt work for me though!
