If you’ve ever suffered from hemorrhoids, then you know they cause discomfort, and all you want to do is get rid of the problem. Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are caused by swollen veins in the lower part of the rectum and the anus. They can be likened to varicose veins. When the walls of these veins become stretched too thin, they bulge and become irritated. Such irritation is felt mostly when having a bowel movement. If you’re suffering such discomfort, there are some treatments you might want to try.
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is known for its soothing and healing properties. You can effectively relieve the discomfort of piles by applying the gel from the aloe vera plant. You can also cut the leaves in strips, remove the thorns and freeze them. Once frozen, you can use the leaves to treat internal hemorrhoids by putting a leaf slightly into the anus and rub over the inflamed area.
