What is Piles?

Piles is another name given to hemorrhoids. In this condition, tissues, and veins around the anal canal become swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the lower rectum and anus. Development of hemorrhoids can take place inside or outside the rectum.

Internal piles are more common and normally developed between 3 to 4 cm above the opening of the anus. While external piles develop on the outside edge of the anus and this type of piles is less common.

Around 3 out of 5 adults suffer from piles at least once in their life span.

Symptoms of Piles

Many patients with piles become unable to observe the symptoms of piles at early stages. But the symptoms are noticed over time as the disease becomes severe. The major signs and symptoms of piles include:

      Bleeding from the anal area

      Itching or irritation in the anal region

      Swelling around the anus

      Pain or discomfort while sitting, lying on the bed

      A hard lump near the anus

Causes of Piles

The veins located around the anus tend to stretch due to excess pressure and become swell or bulge. There are several reasons behind the pressure increase in the lower rectum, which are:

      Heavy weight lifting

      Consuming a low-fiber diet

      Being pregnant

      Having an excess body weight

      Suffering from chronic constipation or diarrhea

      Having anal intercourse

      Continuous sitting for many hours

      Straining during bowel movements

Risk factors of Piles

The risk of piles increases as the human body gets older because the tissue that supports the veins in the anus and rectum becomes weak and stretched over time.

Being pregnant is also a major risk factor of developing piles because the pressure in the anal region increases due to the baby’s weight.

Home remedies for treating piles

Here are some piles of home remedies that will help you in getting rid of piles in a natural way. Go through these home remedies and adapt them to your daily life.

1.    Loose, cotton clothing

Wearing loose, comfortable clothes made with polyester with ultra-breathable cotton is a major tip to keep the anal area dry and clean. Symptoms of piles can be minimized by wearing such kinds of clothes. Also, try to avoid the use of perfumed detergents or fabric softeners in order to reduce irritation in the anal region.

2.    Fiber supplements

Diet plan for Piles plays a very important role. Consumption of fiber-rich or stool softeners supplements like psyllium may help you in managing constipation and soften the stools. These supplements will also make bowel movements painless and quick. Many of these stool softener supplements come in the dosage forms like liquids, capsules, and powders which can be administered by mouth.

3.    Apply ice pack

Doing cold compresses and applying an ice pack to the area of the anus is also an effective piles home remedy to get relief from swelling. Apply ice for at least 15 minutes at a time. This piles home remedy is highly beneficial in the case of large, painful hemorrhoids. Wrap the ice inside a cloth or paper towel and apply it.

4.    Soothing wipes

The use of toilet paper after passing stools can aggravate existing hemorrhoids. But using wipes may help you in cleaning the anal region without irritation. For an added boost, you can find wipes with soothing, anti-hemorrhoid ingredients such as aloe vera or witch hazel. Try to use wipes free from perfume, alcohol or other various irritants.

5.    Bath with Epsom salt

Another beneficial piles home remedy is to take a warm bath. It can help you in soothing the irritation from hemorrhoids. Take a warm bath for 15 minutes after every bowel movement by adding Epsom salts to the water. You can use a bathtub or use a sitz bath, which is a small plastic tub that fits over a toilet seat.

6.    Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a well-known piles home remedy that is used since ancient times. Aloe vera gel is very advantageous for treating piles and various skin issues. Aloe vera is rich in anti-inflammatory properties which further reduce inflammation and irritation in the hemorrhoids.

7.    Witch hazel

The consumption of witch hazel may relieve swelling, pain, and itching in the hemorrhoids. Witch hazel is packed with numerous anti-inflammatory properties. Witch hazel can be used in the liquid form and applied directly on the hemorrhoids. It is one of the most effective piles home remedies.
