Homeopathic Medicine for Piles

Piles are also known as hemorrhoids which affect both men and women. There are internal piles and external piles. Internal piles occur in the rectum while external piles occur around the anus. Bright red blood covering or accompanying the stool is a sign of the presence of internal hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids present with a hard lump or painful swellings around the anus. Piles can make the bowel movement very painful and dangerous; homeopathic medicines constitute some of the effective treatment methods.
