Preparation H Gel is a treatment for piles and haemorrhoids which helps to moisturise the affected area. It helps to soothe and relieve symptoms of itchy and dry skin caused by piles. It’s non-greasy and is quickly absorbed into the skin for fast results.
Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are enlarged blood vessels found inside and around your anus. Nobody knows the exact cause of piles, but one of the most common things thought to cause piles is straining too much when you’re on the toilet. This happens when you’re suffering with constipation.
Preparation H Gel uses natural ingredients to help cool and soothe the area affected by piles or haemorrhoids. One of these ingredients is Hamamelis water, more commonly known as witch hazel, which is well known for its soothing and cooling properties.
Apply Preparation H Gel freely to the external affected area whenever you feel any dryness or itching. Also make sure to apply Preparation H Gel after every bowel movement.
