Urgent haemorrhoids shopping list.

In two days I have to go on an all day family bike ride.
I have done myself quite the arse injury with an over indulgence of holiday white toast, sausages and egg sandwiches this past week and need to go to the shops today to attempt a quick rectification of my foolish self induced piles.

So far I’ve got prunes on my list. And some sort of unguent to ease the incessant itching.

What else?

Preparation H or Anusol.

Anusol - the one with hydrocortisone in (there's also one without, so read the box before you buy).

Is anusol over the counter?

Germoloids ointment (not the cream, the ointment stays in place better)!

Witch hazel wipes loo paper will feel like sandpaper.

You can get suppositories that help with internal piles.

It does @ChazsBrilliantAttitude!
Wipes sound excellent.

You should be able to buy it in Boots, it'll be on the shelves, often near "feminine hygiene".

I second which hazel wipes, germaloids and also sitting with a little bag of frozen peas wrapped in kitchen roll held on them as often as you can.

Germoloids - it has an anaesthetic in it (unlike Anusol). Anusol wipes are nice though.

Thanks for all the advice. Anusol with hydrocortisone plus the witch hazel wipes are working a treat.

I can feel the relief from here!

Suppositories. I was screaming in agony following birth of DD a few months ago. The haemorrhoid was far more traumatic for me than the actual birth. Got the prescription steroid cream from dr but it was taking its time. Health visitor came round and said to try anusol suppositories. Relief within 24 hours!

Missed your update! So relieved for you
