Thanks for your query.

Tobacco consumption in the form of gutkha / pan masala definitely worsens haemorrhoids ( piles ). Please stop the habit in view of piles and general health and well being.
You can read the following link :
Also, you need to make dietary adjustments to decrease piles, and the gas and bloating that you have.
Take regular exercise, as it helps bowel movements.
make a habit of drinking atleast 4 - 5 litres of water / fluids everyday.
Avoid eating too much at a time.
Avoid heavy, spicy, greasy food.

Making simple lifestyle changes through diet and exercise is usually the first recommendation.

Increase the fibre in your diet and aim to eat 25-30g of insoluble fibre a day, such as wholegrain bread, cereal, and fruit and vegetables.
The body is unable to digest insoluble fibre, so it passes through the bowels and helps other food and waste move through more easily.
Also drink plenty of water. Aim to drink at least six to eight glasses of fluid a day and avoid too much caffeine (found in tea, coffee and cola).
Avoid straining to pass stools because it may make your haemorrhoids worse
after passing a stool, use moist toilet paper rather than dry toilet paper to clean your bottom .
Using baby wipes can help ease any discomfort that you have after passing a stool XXXXXXX the area around your bottom rather than rubbing it

Creams, ointments and suppositories, available over-the-counter from pharmacies, can be used to relieve any swelling and inflammation that you have around your back passage. However, they will only treat your symptoms and will not cure the haemorrhoids themselves.
These types of medicines ( such as the ones you are taking ) should only be used for five to seven days at a time. If you use them for longer than this, they may irritate the sensitive skin around your anus. Any medication you use should be combined with the diet and self care advice above.

If medicines and diet and lifestyle modifications fail to relieve you, you might consider the following options :
Banding is a procedure that is sometimes used to treat second and third degree haemorrhoids.
Banding involves a very tight elastic band being placed around the base of your haemorrhoids to cut off their blood supply. The haemorrhoids should fall off within seven days of having the treatment.
Banding is usually carried out as a day procedure and you should be able to return to work the following day.

Sclerotherapy is another common treatment for XXXXXXX haemorrhoids. It can be used as an alternative to banding.
A chemical solution is injected into the blood vessels in your back passage. This relieves pain by numbing the sensory nerve endings at the site of the injection. It also hardens the tissue of the haemorrhoid so that a scar is formed. After about four to six weeks, the haemorrhoid should decrease in size or shrivel up.
Infrared coagulation, also know as infrared light, can also be used to treat haemorrhoids.
A special device is used to burn the haemorrhoid tissue. One or two bursts of infrared light can cut off the circulation to small XXXXXXX haemorrhoids, such as grade one or two haemorrhoids.
Surgery is sometimes recommended to treat large XXXXXXX haemorrhoids, or those graded as three or four.

If the typhoid was completely cured before 2 months, do not worry about it. Just avoid eating outside and maintain food hygiene within your home.

take care and feel free to ask for further clarifications.
