Holy fuckeroony, do NOT put germolene on his piles, he'll be in AGONY. Or Canesten.

Sudacrem probably won't hurt but won't do much either - can you get Preparation H? Similar to Anusol though, probably.

Witch hazel on cotton pads can help if you can get it.

Sounds like it might have thrombosed. Its incredibly painful. Get him to try the ice again. It can take a little while to reduce. The Dr will likely offer a course of suppositories to help

My husband swears by Proctofoam, though its on prescription here in UK -only thing that works when they are bad

Witch hazel is the traditional remedy (though it didn't do much for my pregnancy piles).

If you can get some, soak a sanitary towel in it and shove it up his arse crack. Of put a wet one in the fridge and do the same to see if coldness helps.

This one isn't instant but works well: take a small clove of garlic and wash it down with a large glass of water every morning.

The good news is that if they have thrombosed they will probably pop by themselves and feel instantly better. That's what happened to my 9-month-pregnant self. They were incredibly painful - every movement hurt, really really hurt. Then they popped, bled (little clot came out) and my word, they felt better. Hopefully this will happen to your poor DH. In the meantime put a cold wet cloth in his crack. He has my sympathies; it's hideous.

Hi I have recently recovered myself from piles. Use Vaseline. This will help him a lot. Apply on the sore area and as far in as possible.

Also increase fibre intake and have plenty of water.

Vitamin B6 three times a day. Really works . Found it on an international home remedies site.

Vaseline does help. My dad used to sit on a childs blown up rubber swimming ring to raise the painful area when watching TV and used a sitz bath for after BM's.
