An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Keep well and stay safe.

Internal Piles

Internal piles are piles (haemorrhoids) that are inside the inner part of the rectum, along the passageway. They are less noticeable than external piles: whereas external piles are grape-like protrusions around the rim of the anus, internal piles are hidden inside the anus.

You may notice that you have internal piles if you experience minor bleeding or pain when passing stools.

Internal piles are usually less painful than external piles, but still tend to be uncomfortable. Thankfully, they are treatable. The most successful treatments for internal piles are the suppository treatments, because they are less messy than creams or ointments. Typical treatments are listed below.
  • Anusol Suppositories 24x

    Anusol Suppositories 24x

  • Anusol Plus HC Suppositories 12x

    Anusol Plus HC Suppositories 12x

    Anusol HC suppositories are a particularly powerful way of treating internal piles. They contain the same formulation as regular Anusol suppositories, but with the addition of hydrocortisone which shrinks the swollen internal piles. Use these when your internal piles are particularly swollen, but use for a maximum of one week. If after one week your symptoms have not improved, you should consult your doctor. If your symptoms are improving after one week but you still need to continue treatment, then you should switch to the regular Anusol suppositories (see above).
