DRUG SOOV IT
LOWDOWN Sadly, piles aren’t just the lot of old geezers. Flare-ups can happen when you’re constipated and pre- and post-pregnancy. Don’t put up with the pain – get some aptly named Soov It. “It’s an anti-inflammatory that will minimise swelling; and an anaesthetic to get rid of itching and pain,” says Bell. It also contains an emollient base, which will protect your skin.
FINE PRINT To prevent a repeat appearance of these nasty buggers, Bell recommends getting plenty of fibre and water into your diet to produce some more-easy-to-do poos.
SEE A DOCTOR If bleeding occurs or if the pain gets worse.
