When piles become more than just a nuisance
What are my treatment options?
What dietary & lifestyle changes should I make?
For all grades of piles, it is important to make the following dietary and lifestyle changes to help reduce the recurrence of piles.1
Using topical treatment
Procedures done in the doctor’s rooms explained
- Rubber Band Ligation uses a device that allows a rubber band to be applied to each haemorrhoid via a proctoscope. This band constricts the blood supply, the pile receives no oxygen and falls off approximately 1–2 weeks later.5
- Sclerotherapy is a procedure where the doctor uses an anoscope to locate the pile. The skin below/above the pile is then injected with a sclerosant material — typically a solution including phenol in vegetable oil — which causes the tissue to harden. The redundant tissue attaches to the anal canal, and eventually gets destroyed.3
- Infrared coagulation is the direct application of infrared waves to the base of the pile, causing the pile tissue to die and the pile to ultimately fall off.5
