What are haemorrhoids?
Haemorrhoids are swollen veins around the back passage which may itch, ache or feel sore. They are prone to bleeding and make going to the toilet uncomfortable and often very painful. To try and avoid this unpleasant ailment, drink at least eight glasses of water a day- as this will help your bowel move more easily and eat plenty of fibre.
