What are haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids (piles) are swellings of enlarged blood vessels inside and around your anus. Anyone can get them, and they will usually get better on their own within a few days, but there are things you can do to treat and prevent them.

You are more likely to get piles during pregnancy.

Symptoms of piles include:

  • Bright red blood after you pass a stool
  • An itchy anus
  • Feeling like you still need to poo after going to the toilet
  • Mucus discharge 
  • Lumps or pain around your anus
  • Pain or bleeding after passing a stool

What causes haemorrhoids?

Piles are swollen blood vessels. There is no one clear cause for it, but some things that make piles more likely are:

  • Constipation
  • Pushing too hard when pooing
  • Pregnancy
  • Heavy lifting

How are haemorrhoids treated?

There are a range of different treatments available for piles, from over the counter medication to hospital solutions if your condition is more severe.

Some simple treatments for piles available over the counter at pharmacies are:

  • Creams are available to ease the pain, itching and swelling of piles
  • Cold packs may help to ease discomfort
  • Constipation treatments like gentle laxatives

Do I need to talk to my doctor about piles?

You probably won’t need to go to your doctor about piles, as they will usually go away on their own after a few days with the right treatment.

However, if there is no improvement to your piles after home treatments, you may need to speak with your doctor, in which case they will tell you whether treatment at a hospital would be right for you.
