Common Home Remedies To Treat Piles

by Giselle Lobo Writer & Blogger

Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins that occur in the anus and lower rectum and resemble varicose veins. They are classified as tissue cushions made up of blood vessels, muscle, and other structures. Haemorrhoids may form within the rectum or beneath the skin near the anus. You can find it challenging to defecate stool if the veins lining the anal canal and lower rectum swell up.

Several factors can cause haemorrhoids, but the cause is always unknown; it may be anything from genetics to extreme constipation, both of which can lead to a severe health condition. Older people and pregnant women are at greater risk. Obesity, poor dietary habits, and a sedentary lifestyle are all potential causes of piles.

Almost three out of four adults encounter piles at some stage in their lives, but they are rarely extreme and typically go away on their own after a few weeks. It is widespread in people whose occupations require them to sit for long periods of time, who do not get enough exercise and are immobile. 

Pain, anus bleeding, and, most importantly, a lump or swelling in the area signifies piles' presence. Anal discharge and itching are also common symptoms. However, in the early stages of piles, it is possible to do piles treatment effectively at home.

Home remedies to reduce painful piles  

Aloe Vera

Because of its invaluable medicinal and healing properties, aloe vera gel gets used for treating haemorrhoids for centuries. Aloe vera gel's anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce swelling and irritation. You can treat external haemorrhoids by applying the gel topically and leave it on for 10-15 minutes to promote healing. You can treat internal piles by drinking aloe vera juice on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, increasing digestion and relieving constipation.

Castor Oil

Castor oil has strong antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. This natural oil has the remarkable ability to reduce the size of piles and relieve pain. To get relief from piles symptoms, mix 3ml of castor oil with milk every night or apply it topically to the affected area.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is an excellent natural remedy for itchy skin. Tea tree oil's antimicrobial solid properties keep the inflamed area free of germs. Since it is a potent essential oil that can sting a little, you can dilute it with a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil. Apply the oil mixture to the infected area, leave it for 10 minutes, then repeat three times for the best results.

Piles are easy to manage, and most cases go away on their own; however, complications do occur in a small percentage of patients. Consult a physician if the home remedies do not work after two weeks. Prescription drugs, such as creams, ointments, and suppositories, can be prescribed by your doctor. If you experience rectal bleeding for the first time, seek medical attention immediately.
