Pilen Cream: Your Comfort Partner INTRODUCTION Piles are also known as haemorrhoids. These are engorged veins present in the lower end of the rectum, around the anus. These become swollen and inflamed due to too much straining during bowel movements. It becomes painful and can even bleed if its surface gets injured. Risk factors Piles can develop in people having: ? Chronic constipation or diarrhoea ? Obesity ? Pregnancy ? Lifting heavy weights for a long time ? Low fibre diet ? Hereditary tendency Types There are two types of haemorrhoids: Internal haemorrhoids: These are formed within the lower rectum and inner side of the anus. Usually, these are not visible outside and cannot be felt. They do not cause any discomfort, especially while sitting. Too much straining or irritation while passing stool can make them bleed. Sometimes, hard straining can push them outside the anal canal. This is termed as prolapsed and protruding haemorrhoids. It results in pain and irritation. Based on their degree of prolapse, it can be classified into: ? Grade One: No prolapse but bleed ? Grade Two: Prolapse but reduce back to their position spontaneously. ? Grade Three: Protrude outside and has to reduce manually. ? Grade Four: Constant protrusion outside, irreducible. These are generally very painful and are liable to develop complications. External haemorrhoids: These are formed under the skin around the anus, and you can feel it. These are liable to cause itching, irritation, pain, discomfort and bleeding. Signs and symptoms Symptoms due to external and internal haemorrhoids are slightly different. In general, these are: ? Painless or painful swelling around the anus. ? Bleeding of bright red blood during stools. ? Pain or discomfort, especially while sitting. ? Itching in the anal region. ? Pain and irritation in the prolapsed haemorrhoid. Diagnosis Diagnosis is made by rectal examination. External haemorrhoids are visible outside. Internal haemorrhoids are diagnosed with the help of digital examination and visualization through a proctoscope. Complications Complications of haemorrhoids are unusual. These are: ? Anaemia: Blood loss from haemorrhoids for a long time has the potential to cause anaemia. This will lead to weakness, lethargy and other symptoms of anaemia. ? Strangulated haemorrhoid: Excruciating condition which develops when the blood supply to an internal haemorrhoid is cut off. ? Infection on a prolapsed haemorrhoid. ? Skin tags: These are extra skin left after a blood clot gets dissolved in external haemorrhoids. ? Thrombus in external haemorrhoids: When blood accumulates and clots in external haemorrhoids, it leads to a painful hard lump. Management Following measures can help in relieving the discomfort and itching for some time: ? Sitz bath- Submerse your back regularly in a warm bath. ? Ice packs or cold fomentation to alleviate swelling of the anus. ? Reduce alcohol and caffeinated drinks as they tend to cause dehydration. Dietary management: ? Consume a high-fibre diet.
