Hello I have developed an horrendous pile overnight. It's the size of a large grape and very painful. What can be done? I'm desperate
Two pronged attack.
Treat whatever caused them to develop, so tackle constipation- diet, exercise and plenty of water.
Use remedies to heal them- things like suppositories and creams, from the supermarket. They heal, reduce inflammation and protect against infection.
Wash gently, try a bath/bidet with Epsom salts to soothe and reduce inflammation. Try lying with your feet up, avoid walking and lifting if you can.
I think alternating warm packs and cold packs helps as well- but you may want to Google haemorrhoid relief to be sure.
sympathies! It hurts!
