Hello doctor I had piles 4 weeks before, I had pain, little blood in stool I took pilex tablets 1-1-1 daily (60 tablets) now no pain but I am having that small lump, how should I shrink that lump? I am taking sits bath twice & applying ice twice daily is it any problem will arise in future if that small lump will not shrink kindly ans these above two quesns please what homeopathy treatment is available for above problem.
Hello no need to apply ice thr. Whats the fun of sitz baths n ice. They are totally opposite.
The future of lump depends on what ot exactly is. If it is a thrombosed pile mass it will shrink gradually. But if its an external pile mass or a skin tag it will remain. I would suggest avoid constipating foods. Take lots of fluids. Do sits baths thrice a day and keep aplying pilex oint. Add tab dobirut twice a day for two weeks. If synptoms persist get yourself examined by a proctologist or a surgeon specialist.
please go through my article
What are hemorrhoids?Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum. They can cause itching, bleeding, and pain. Hemorrhoids are very common.
In some cases, you can see or feel hemorrhoids around the outside of the rectum. In other cases, you cannot see them because they are hidden inside the rectum .
What are the symptoms of hemorrhoids?Hemorrhoids do not always cause symptoms. But when they do, symptoms can include:
●Itching of the skin around the anus
●Bleeding – Bleeding is usually painless. You might see bright red blood after using the toilet.
●Pain – If a blood clot forms inside a hemorrhoid, this can cause pain. It can also cause a lump that you might be able to feel.
Should I see a doctor or nurse?You should see a doctor or nurse if you have any bleeding or if your bowel movements look like tar. Bleeding could be caused by something other than hemorrhoids, so you should have it checked out.
If you do have hemorrhoids, your doctor or nurse can suggest treatments. But there some steps you can try on you your own first.
What can I do to keep from getting more hemorrhoids?The most important thing you can do is to keep from getting constipated. You should have a bowel movement at least a few times a week. When you have a bowel movement, you also should not have to push too much. Plus, your bowel movements should not be too hard.
Being constipated and having hard bowel movements can make hemorrhoids worse. Here are some steps you can take to avoid getting constipated or having hard stools:
●Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and other foods with fiber. Fiber helps to increase bowel movements .
●Take fiber powders, wafers, or pills. You should get 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day.
●Take medicines called stool softeners such as docusate sodium (sample brand names: Colace, Dulcolax) or bulk-forming laxatives. Bulk-forming laxatives include psyllium seed (sample brand names: Metamucil, Konsyl), methylcellulose (sample brand name: Citrucel), polycarbophil (sample brand name: FiberCon), and wheat dextrin (sample brand name: Benefiber) . These medicines increase the number of bowel movements you have. They are safe to take and they can prevent problems later.
What can I do to reduce my symptoms?Some people feel better if they soak their buttocks in 2 or 3 inches of warm water. You can do this up to 2 to 3 times a day for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not add soap, bubble bath, or anything to the water.
There are also medicines that you can get without a prescription . They are usually creams or ointments that you rub on your anus to relieve pain, itching, and swelling. Some hemorrhoid medicines come in a capsule (called a suppository) that you put inside your rectum. Others come in a cream that comes in a bottle with a nozzle that you put inside your rectum. It is OK to try these medicines. But do not use medicines that have hydrocortisone (a steroid medicine) for more than a week, unless your doctor or nurse approves.
What if the self-care steps do not work?If you still have symptoms after trying the steps listed above, you might need treatments to destroy or remove the hemorrhoids.
One popular treatment is called "rubber band ligation." For this treatment, the doctor ties tiny rubber bands around the hemorrhoids. A few days later the hemorrhoids shrink and fall off. Doctors can also use lasers, heat, or chemicals to destroy hemorrhoids. But if none of these options works, your doctor might suggest surgery to remove the hemorrhoids.
