Powerful agent against hemorrhoids and rectal fissures
If you have haemorrhoids, sitting can be very uncomfortable, particularly when you sit on a hard surface.
Here are some measures you can take to reduce your discomfort.
When you sit on a hard surface, the haemorrhoids may rub against the surface and worsen symptoms.
However, when you sit on a soft cushion, the rubbing or friction is less and the haemorrhoids are not so irritated.
You can use “donut” cushions which have been designed in such a way that you can avoid all friction between the haemorrhoids and the surface you are sitting on.
However, keep in mind that sitting in itself is a risk factor for getting enlarged haemorrhoids, especially prolonged sitting.
