Haemorrhoids or piles can be very itchy and uncomfortable. They are often caused by straining to pass a bowel movement, but piles in the later stages of pregnancy are also common. Piles are varicose veins around the anus and lower rectum.
Haemorrhoid ointments contain a local painkiller. When applied to the affected area, the ointment relieves the discomfort and speeds up the healing process. We stock ointments from top brands such as Anodesyn, Preparation H, Anusol, and Germaloids. We also sell soothing wipes to help you keep the area clean and cool. These can be used before you apply topical ointment.
