Doctors are advising people to not put frozen potatoes up their butt. This odd suggestion comes after people dealing with hemorrhoids have reportedly taken to the internet to seek alternative solutions to their problem instead of consulting doctors.

Now, it has emerged that an altogether unusual solution is being thrown around online: that inserting frozen potatoes into your anus for 30-minutes is the answer. Ouch!

PerĀ Wales Online, one article claims: “Here’s what you need to do: Peel a raw potato and cut into thin slices, like you do it for French fries.

“Put the slices into the freezer and wait until they are frozen.

“Insert the frozen potato slice in your anus and leave it inside for 30 seconds. Repeat the process for three to five days. The next three to five days leave the slice inside for 30 seconds more each time.”


The article goes on to state: “The potatoes have astringent properties and help relieve the pain and itchy sensation which usually happens with this condition, while the ice-cold potato constricts the blood vessels, reduces the swelling and relieves your pain instantly.”

Doctors however…are advising against the interesting suggestion.

One doctor, Dr. Diana Gall, of leading online medical service Doctor-4-U, said: “Piles can be an irritating condition and sufferers are sometimes too embarrassed to seek professional helping, turning to old wives’ tales instead.”

Dr. Gall went on to offer up this advice: “There is no medical evidence that putting frozen potatoes inside the anus can help cure piles, so I would urge caution to anyone thinking of doing it.”

“Piles often go away on their own after a few days, but there are some tried and trusted ways to keep them at bay.”

“You should drink plenty of fluids and maintain a fiber-rich diet and try having regular warm baths to ease itching and pain.”

“If home treatments do not banish your piles, it is advised to go to your doctor and explore alternative treatments.”

So long story short…it’s best to consult a doctor before you start insert frozen produce in your buttocks!
