Painful unus
My unus is broken and everytime I go the loo it gets so painful i dont know if maybe is because i have this problem of having stiff stools. It has been like this for two weeks now. And the problem is that it only hurts when i want to relive myself

Please what can i get to relieve this.

Babes,

Start of by taking a product that will soften your stool (such as Duphalac or Duphalac dry) for a few weeks. A topical ointment such as anugesic or anusol may help to relief discomfort.
