Suspect in developing piles, Have blood spots after stools. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Doctor, This is XXXXXXX
How can I help you?
Hello Dr. XXXXXXX I think I am developing piles.
I have travelled to US 2 wks back and my eating scheduled was disturbed.
Do you feel an skin tag there?
There is some spots when I use tissues after stool.
blood spots, I mean to say
What do you mean by skin tag?
A skin tag is the pile
It will be soft and elongated and one can feel it on touch
no. I do not see those. it is not there.
only the small spots when i wipe
and some blood on the stool.
So, you see only blood on the wipes
Then the chances of it being piles are less
yes. this is fearsome
It could be fissures
I went to stores, and have got one mediction - hydrocortisone
and got some luxatives also.
This issue was there since 2 weeks. it was stopped when i controlled my food.
Yes, food is the major concern here
Do take the laxatives,
like liquid paraffin
it is powder. so shall i take?
Liquid paraffin is a syrup
it is polyethylen glycole
that is I bought today. will that okay to take today.
Yes, you can take Polyethylen glucol, it too is a a laxative
Okay. I am bit scared. Why is this happening to me and how do I control here. Any medication would you suggest?
There are a few OTC drugs are available, for which doctors prescription not needed.
It is manily due to change in the food style
The best and only remedy at this time would be a laxative
Need not take any medication, usually medications cause constipation or affect the mucous membrane health
this may worsen the condition
Apply the hydrocotisone cream and take the laxative.
Ok. About the tube - hydrocortisone. I applied twice. Shall I stop that
This would treat the condition as it is in the initial stage
its 845 pm here and i just took some food. when can i take the laxative.
Its better to take the laxatives in the night after food
15 min after the food
Only once a day dose is suffecient
Do you see any complications to my case? Any precautions, and time to heal completely.
Okay. and I should take the luxative for 3-5 days?
For a week would be good
You can take multivitamins, but not now
Thanks. Last question - is this the begining of piles? suggestions that i should take care etc.
Since the fissures are in active stage any medication can alter the stool consistency and worsen the fissure
Its a fissure not a pile
Though both usually coexist
you do not have pile unless examined
its fissure what you have.
The only best remedy is avoid constipation, avoid spicy foods
If, when you come to india
You can take Himalaya PILEX tablets to prevent such occurrences in future
PILEX tabs are very effective
Okay. thanks. I will ask someone to get this medicine for me. thanks.
Is there anything you want to know.
thats it for the moment. Will connect with you tommorrow only if the uncomfort persists.
Yes for sure.
