I am 36 weeks into my second pregnancy and had a flare up of piles with external swelling. I really want to get things under control quickly to minimise additional issues at the birth and afterwards so any tips outside of the creams and potions route (already on these!) would be gratefully received.
Thank you all!

Thanks MyBs. Yes, trying to rest with varying success (partly due to my 5yr old but mostly due to house renovations - ridiculous timing!). I am using prep h as had a bad skin reaction to anusol previously but will discuss stronger option with midwife at this weeks appointment. I too had problems after the birth of my first and the thought of spending longer than necessary feeling sorry for myself locked away in the bathroom when I want to be cuddling the next bundle of fun is just horrid. Fingers-crossed for more lay down time this week. TJx
