Piles are swollen masses, clumps, and cushions of tissue in the anal canal. They vary in size and can be inside or outside even at the edge of the anus. They are caused by chronic constipation or diarrhea, straining when passing a stool or during pregnancy.
A person with piles may feel pain while defecating; feels the bowels still full after coming from the toilet. There may be itchiness around the anus or the anal area, which may be red and sore. Discharge of bright red blood or mucus while emptying bowels may also be there.
Treatment effectively reduces the itchiness and pain experienced by patients. Eating fruits and vegetables which are rich in fiber and drinking a lot of water to keep the stools soft and regular is advised. Losing weight also reduces the severity of pain.
The doctor may prescribe laxatives if severe constipation is the case or may place an elastic band around the base of the pile inside the anus to cut off blood supply so that after a few days the piles fall off. In severe cases, the piles may have to be surgically removed.
Homeopathy has some excellent treatments for piles that does not demand the use of laxatives. By opting for homeopathy one can avoid surgery and reduce the risk of recurrence to a large extent.
