PILES & ITCHING DURING PREGNANCY
Use Anacare cream to soothe the itching and irritation associated with piles in pregnancy.
Anal itching is common with piles in pregnancy. Anacare cream is ideal due to its natural ingredient formulation to relieve irritation and itching during pregnancy and for new mums.
Anacare is ideal to soothe the itching and irritation associated with piles in pregnancy, and after the pregnancy.
There are a number of suitable topical creams on the market, but Anacare was designed specifically with pregnant mums in mind. During pregnancy, it is important to take care not to use powerful chemicals on your body.
Natural is best and safest for both you and your baby. Unlike other creams, our formulation does not include any parabens or lidocaine, a powerful anaesthetic which just dulls the anal itching, but does not treat it.
So we made Anacare to have natural ingredients, such as Witch Hazel to calm the itch, Calendula to reduce inflammation and soothe irritated tissue and Sweet Clover leaf to improve blood circulation to the area. Anacare will also create a long lasting natural barrier to prevent bacteria absorbing into the skin’s epidermis.
Anal itching associated with piles in pregnancy and following the birth of a baby can understandingly become an extremely uncomfortable situation and many times mums suffering from rectal itching feel embarrassed to talk about it with their doctors or midwives. Frequently, Pruritus ani begins gradually but can become a self-perpetuating itch-scratch cycle.
Many pregnant women feel symptoms of itching due to the development of unwanted, but very common, haemorrhoids – swollen pouches formed underneath the mucous membranes inside or outside the rectum, bringing uncomfortable symptoms such as anal itching or Pruritus ani and soreness.
Pregnancy makes you more prone to such conditions, which you may experience as intense anal itching on your bottom for a variety of reasons.
Your growing uterus puts pressure on the pelvic veins and the inferior vena cava, a large vein on the right side of the body that receives blood from the lower limbs. This can slow the return of blood from the lower half of your body, which increases the pressure on the veins below your uterus and causes them to become more dilated or swollen.
Women with constipation during their pregnancy have a higher risk of haemorrhoids and Pruritus ani due to the straining during bowel movements, causing increased pressure on the rectal veins. This condition commonly develops in pregnant women in the third trimester but has been known to also appear at any time during pregnancy. It will often go away on its own after delivery.
In common with other products, if you are pregnant or breast feeding, you should discuss Anacare with your midwife or doctor before use.
