Piles

What are Piles?

Piles, also commonly known as hemorrhoids, is a condition where the veins of the rectum or anus swell and causes rectal bleeding. Piles may be present since a long time, however, may remain unnoticed. It is a common medical condition that affects three out of every four adults.

What Triggers Piles?

  • Excessive pressure on the anal or rectal veins
  • Intake of diet that lacks fiber
  • Prolonged sitting or standing
  • Overweight or obese people
  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea
  • Anal sex
  • Medical conditions such as liver disease or colon cancer

How Would You Know If You Have Piles ?

  • You may experience painless rectal bleeding (slow trickle of blood following bowel movement)
  • Pain, itching or discharge after bowel movement
  • A lump or swelling in the anus
  • A feeling that the rectum has not been completely emptied

What Should You Do In Case Your Symptoms Worsen?

  • Bleeding following bowel movement is a common symptom. If it continues for more than two days, make sure you see a doctor
  • It is important to be vigilant for symptoms because rectal bleeding can also be a cause for several other medical conditions. Therefore, it is important to rule out the cause
  • Though rare, but complications may cause anemia
  • Your doctor will examine you physically and suggest a few tests such as digital examination to confirm the presence of piles

What Are The Available Treatment Options?

  • Your doctor, upon confirming the diagnosis of piles, would recommend over-the-counter creams, ointments and suppositories to relieve symptoms
  • Your doctor would also suggest certain modifications in your dietary habits and lifestyle habits
  • In case, the hemorrhoids are large, your doctor may recommend a surgical procedure to remove them.

Are There Any Natural Remedies For Piles ?

You can try these effective natural remedies to ease your symptoms:

1. Psyllium Husk

Ingredients: Psyllium husk, Water

Ways to Use:

Often hard stools worsen piles. Psyllium husk is a rich source of fiber that softens the stools and eases its movement.

2. Soaking

Ways to Use:

For instant relief from pain and itching, you can soak in a tub of warm water for 20-30 minutes. Makes sure you properly wipe and dry the area with a towel.

3. Aloe Vera

Ingredients: Aloe vera

Ways to Use:

Aloe vera pulp has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to relieve pain from piles. The pulp can be applied on the inflamed area to soothe and hydrate the swollen veins

4. Tea Tree Oil
