Bloody piles

Anyone else suffer with piles? Had a few of the symptoms- teeny bit of blood after I poop and an itchy arse. I've had them before and know what kicked them off again- I was bloody constipated and strained on the loo! Stupid of me eh?

I'm debating if I should go to the GP- it'd mean taking a full day off work (and I can't really afford to lose the money) or give it a week and see what happens. (Obv I'll go if the symptoms get worse.)

What'd you do?

Bag of frozen peas wrapped in tea towel. And otc cream.
Hideous things. Hope you feel better soon.

Oh they are hideous things! I would have been quite prone to them
but after having ds, I have been left with the most spectacular piles confused

I used to find some of the over the counter ointments were pretty good but now I have to go to the GP for the hard core stuff.

They're not too bad right now. I think I have a mild case. smile

What OTC stuff did you use?

It was called Germoloids if I remember right.... blue packages. Smells like germolene but it's quite clay-like and makes a right mess your your knickers. I recommend period pants!
