Anusol HC Ointment helps to reduce inflammation, soothe and treat unpleasant symptoms caused by piles.
What causes Haemorrhoids?
The cause to haemorrhoids is unclear, but increased pressure in the blood vessels in and around the anus is associated with the condition.
Pressure can be caused by straining on the toilet due to constipation or even diarrhoea.
Some other factors which cause haemorrhoids are:
- Being overweight or obese
- Being pregnant
- Lifting heavy objects
- Sitting down for long period of time
- A persistent cough or repeated vomiting
What are haemorrhoids?
Haemorrhoids (piles) are lumps (enlarged blood vessels) which are inside and around your anus. They are usually small, round, discoloured lumps. You might be able to feel them on your anus. There are many things which can cause you to get haemorrhoids such as:
- Pushing too hard when pooing
- Heavy lifting
Haemorrhoids are caused when the blood vessel becomes enlarged, which will then lead to you having symptoms.
