Systematic washing with water is ideal although this is difficult after each and every bowel movement!
The other method consists of wiping with a moist tissue or toilet paper. Nevertheless, the anal area is particularly sensitive or even painful during a flare-up of haemorrhoids. This makes this practice uncomfortable and ineffective (moist toilet paper tends to come apart). For excellent local hygiene, it is therefore advisable to adopt a new product: Micro H Wipes.
