Ayushakti Brings You a Few Naturals Treatments for Piles
- Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is considered a natural moisturizer. Coconut oil can help with hemorrhoid symptoms. Applying coconut oil may relieve the swelling, irritation, soothe the affected area and it may also help decrease the urge to scratch the affected area. Apply coconut oil directly to the affected area. Do not scratch. Scratching it can make the area more irritated and painful.
- Aloe Vera
The anti-inflammatory and cooling effects of aloe vera may help ease the irritation, burning, itching, and inflammation of hemorrhoids. Although the study isn’t available for its use on hemorrhoid comfort precisely, it has revealed some advantages for other inflammatory skin ailments. Experts suggest that it is safe to try only if it’s unadulterated and pure aloe vera and not in a lotion, cream, or with other ingredients. One can directly apply the gel to the anus.
- Ice It
Using ice packs on hemorrhoids can relieve pain, discomfort, irritation, burning, and inflammation. Ice should not be seated directly over the trouble area because it can provoke tissue injury. Therefore, ice should be covered in a napkin or towel or cold packs can also be used. Ice packs should be placed on the painful area several times a day as icing can numb the pain for a little while.
- Take Warm Baths
Immerse yourself in a bathtub that should be filled with warm water for at least 15 minutes at a time. One can do this activity 3 to 4 times a day or after every bowel movement. Warm water can help ease inflammation and irritation from hemorrhoids. If you wish to clean the area, too, use scentless soap and do not scrub. Pat gently thereafter to dry.

It is recommended to wear loose, comfortable, breathable, cotton, soft underwear. This aids in wound healing by keeping the trouble area aired and stopping the moisture from building up. It also decreases irritation and controls the worsening of inflammation.
