Treatment of piles

The management of piles is usually treated with conservative methods, such as medication, and rarely surgery. Such medications aim at providing symptomatic relief. Laxatives and a high fibre diet is advised to relieve constipation. Local application of pain-relieving ointments or creams may also be prescribed. The affected individual is encouraged to have plenty of fruit and vegetables in his or her diet and to increase fluid intake to soften stools. Regular physical exercise such as walking or jogging is recommended. Surgical intervention may be required if conservative treatment does not have the desired result. Surgical techniques largely depend upon the stage of the disease. Sclerotherapy is one of the surgical techniques where sclerosing agents are injected into the congested blood vessels. Other operative procedures include rubber band ligation and cautery methods. A Haemorrhoidectomy (excision of piles) may be considered in severe cases.
