There are many steps one can take to avoid getting hemorrhoids or piles. If one has the condition, they can also take certain stops for relieving the pain. Hemorrhoids, or piles, are some inflammation, dilation, which may have the most diverse backgrounds. Just like typical varicose veins that appear on the legs, hemorrhoids can have a significant hereditary component in their origin.
But there are other factors that may produce their appearance. These include –
* Maintaining good hygiene and avoid scratching of the Anus.
* Maintaining a fiber rich diet that includes fruits, vegetables, wholemeal bread, plenty of fluids.
* Avoid very spicy foods and alcohol.
* Avoid straining at stool. Reduce the time of defecation. Use soft toilet paper or anal cleansing with warm bath
* Apply ice or cold packs in the acute phase of the disorder. The cold will reduce swelling.
* Take hot baths in the area two or three times a day.
Avoid pushing during defecation to minimize bleeding and prolapse. Rectal suppositories and ointments are of little value in the treatment of internal hemorrhoids, they have only transitory effects of anesthesia. To reduce prolapsed hemorrhoids, one must push the rectum with gentle pressure and avoid sitting in hard places. Pregnancy is among the most frequent causes of hemorrhoids in women as pregnancy develops the pressure increases in the veins of the area to hamper the return flow to the heart. Eating disorders such as low-fiber diets, staying too long sitting or standing still, are other factors that favor its appearance. Some sports, like cycling, also increase your chances of getting hemorrhoids. Certain diseases can also raise blood pressure in the area and therefore cause this problem.
Sclerotherapy treatment is performed by injection of certain chemicals (sometimes can be done by freezing) in the tissue surrounding the internal hemorrhoidal varices. Surgical excision is performed throughout the mucosa surrounding the piles, resulting in an excellent long-term outcome. Recurrences of piles are extremely rare after a hemorrhoidectomy.
