Anybody who has experienced piles will know how much it hurts. This is a condition where blood vessels
in the rectum
dilate, forming a pile mass also known as hemorrhoids
. This makes the process of bowel movement painful and sometimes even bloody.
There are many treatments recommended to treat hemorrhoids. Sclerotheraphy involves injecting a chemical solution into the area around the affected blood
vessel to reduce hermorrhoids. However, this will not work for a larger pile mass. Freezing the hemorrhoid is another procedure called cryotheraphy, which can cause a lot of discomfort and swelling
You can try rubber bandaging the pile mass, but this remedy can result in ulcers. Surgical removal of the hemorrhoids, on the other hand
, can involve a lengthy hospital stay and post-operative pain. Another option would be effective creams and ointments which can be applied to relieve pain and swelling, to control the bleeding, and to shrink your painful hemorrhoids.
One such medication is Pilex ointment
. Manufactured and distributed by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, Pilex ointment relieves pain and discomfort caused by piles and prevents them from returning.
The ointment contains natural analgesic and anti-infective ingredients that can control bleeding and treat the inflamed rectal area. Pilex ointment is manufactured based on the principles of Ayurvedic medicine, a form of traditional medicine prevalent in India. Ayurvedic healing makes use of the medicinal properties of materials that come from nature, particularly those that come from vegetables, animals and minerals.
Pilex ointment contains a mixture of herbs which have healing properties. These include Mimosa pudica which is anti-inflammatory and reduces sores; thistles, which are traditionally used in the treatment of piles; Vitex negundo, a plant that exhibits antibacterial activity; Calendula flowers, which also reduce inflammation, helps wounds to heal, and has antiseptic properties; camphor to relieve pain and facilitate smooth bowel movement; Zinc, which has antiseptic and astringent properties to promote wound healing, and Borax, a mild antiseptic with cooling properties.
Pilex ointment combines all these healing plant ingredients to lessen the swelling of affected veins
in the rectal area. This action works to reduce the size of the pile mass. It fights against infection, relieves pain, and promotes healing of the inflamed skin. Because it also contains soothing properties, it can even make bowel movement easier and less agonizing. Pilex ointment is recommended for use with Pilex tablets, for more effective treatment.
You can purchase Pilex ointment online through the Himalaya Herbal Healthcare website, or on other herbal remedy sites which carry the product. The ointment comes in a 30 gram tube, and is recommended for application before and after bowel movement.
The only contraindication for the ointment is to keep it away from children below the age of 14. Although it has no known side effects because of its natural ingredients, it is still advisable to consult your doctor for the best dosage for your condition. Like other medications, you will need to store your Pilex ointment at room temperature and away from moisture and sunlight.
If you are hesitant about undergoing invasive surgery and other debilitating treatments which involve pain, discomfort, lasting side-effects or long hospital confinements, a topical treatment like Pilex ointment is a safe and logical choice to remedy a case of the piles.
