Healthy nutrition will help you to have soft stools which won’t damage the tissues of your bowels and anus. Additionally, you will be able to control your weight which is essential for the prevention of piles. Don’t forget about drinking water.
It is extremely important not to spend too much time in the toilet. If you have problems with a bowel movement, there is no need to spend half an hour on straining. It is better to drink several glasses of water and go for a walk. Excessive pressure will damage the tissues of your bowel which can lead to the occurrence of hemorrhoids.

In case you have noticed that your toilet paper is damaging your skin, you should definitely buy a softer product or use delicate cloth. It is crucial to understand that frequent damage of your skin can lead to the occurrence of piles as well.
