Piles or fistula are two very severe problems which men can face at any point of thei life. These two medical conditions affect one of the main part of a men’s system, i.e. the anus. But many a times people confuse one of these disorder with the other one.
What Are Piles?
Piles are the inflamed or swollen set of tissues which are present in the sensitive anal area. These can range from different sizes and can also be present in various areas i.e. internal or external. Internal piles are usually present between 2-4 cms above the anus opening whereas the external piles are present on the outside.
There are different symptoms for Piles:
- The person can experience severe to moderate pain in the rectum area.
- Immense pain can also occur when the person is sitting or moving in a difficult position.
- Experiencing discomfort, itchiness, or swelling of the anus is very common in Piles.
- The person may see blood in his stool or problems related to digestion.
The causes of Piles can be of different reasons:
- Chronic constipation
- Chronic diarrhea
- Lifting heavy weights
Treatment and Diagnosis:
Homeopathy can be effectively used to treat piles. Most of the time, piles are caused due unhealthy lifestyle and food habits. So homeopathy can be easily treated with help of homeopathic methods which can be used to change one’s food habits and keep them healthy.
What is Fistula?
The anus is like an exit point in the body for wastes and semen. Inside this anus, many small glands are present. If due to some reason, these glands or a single gland is blocked, then an abscess is formed which infects the anus and causes severe pain or abnormalities. This condition is known as Anus fistula.
There is no exact cause of fistula. Usually these are caused due to some severe accident or injury which affects the anus. It can also be caused due to some other disease which affects the anus like STDs, Crohn’s Disease, tuberculosis etc.
Here are some important symptoms:
- Blockage of anal abscesses
- Pain and inflammation around the anus
- Immense pain with bowel movements
- Bleeding from the anus
- Bloody or foul-smelling drainage coming out from the anus
Treatment and Diagnosis:
Homeopathy can be a very important and efficient way by which fistula can be relived from. Homeopathy has a very high chance of solving fistula because homeopathic medicines and methods can cure the abscess completely. Due to the complete removal of the abscess, the normal tissues appear once again with time.
