Piles is a painful condition characterized by inflammation in the lower rectum. Common symptoms of hemorrhoids include blood in the stool, an itchy anus, and constant pain and discomfort. Hemorrhoids can be a chronic or temporary condition, and most people experience hemorrhoid symptoms at some point in their lives for a short or long period of time. The risk of developing hemorrhoids increases with age. Therefore, it is recommended to consult a doctor immediately, especially if the patient is over 60 years old. Proper diagnosis is also key to treatment, as there are different types of hemorrhoids and each type requires specific treatment procedures. If you can't identify your symptoms, talk to your Ayurvedic doctor.
