Causes of haemorrhoids and fissures

Haemorrhoids and anal fissures are caused by constipation, bad toilet habits and childbirth. Fissures occur when hard and lumpy stools are passed.

Haemorrhoids and anal fissures are not dangerous, but very uncomfortable – they hurt, sting, itch and bleed. You usually discover haemorrhoids and anal fissures when toilet visits are suddenly painful, or you find blood on the toilet paper. Haemorrhoids usually bleed more than fissures.

Always contact a doctor if you discover blood coming from the rectum. Haemorrhoids and anal fissures are not the only conditions causing bleeding.

What can you do?

It is important to avoid constipation, as the lumpy and hard stools can be extra painful when you have haemorrhoids and anal fissures.

Be physically active, drink plenty of water and eat extra fruit and vegetables. Supplement with dietary fibres that have a positive effect on your bowel system.

HUSK® contains 85 % fibres and is well known for its effect on the digestive system. HUSK® softens the stool, making your toilet visit more comfortable.
