anusol can be gotten without prescription and is safe to use in pregnancy (usual disclaimer: check with pharmacist).

Yeah Anusol is grand but be careful, there are 2 different types of it and one of them can't be used in pg - it should say this on the box but best check with pharmacist first

I got one in the healthfood shop - it contains witch hazel which is a really great remedy for piles - hope you get something to help.

I used preparation H and it is great but it is more soothing and reduces swelling.

I find shallow baths with salt or some tea tree oil great.

My piles just didnt improve so the midwife in the hospital recommended anusal suppositaries...and finally they seem to be healed for now...
