Hey don't stick yer frozen potaters up there

Doctors have advised against that course of action for treating hemorrhoids.

This comes as an increasing number of hemorrhoid sufferers 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 touted online: that inserting frozen potatoes into your anus for 30 minutes is the answer.

Per the Metro, 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."

The doctor continued: "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.
