Thanks for writing to us.
Given your description, it sounds like an inguinal hernia. As far as ayurvedic treatment is concerned, it is an abnormal opening which causes the hernia so no medicine can close this opening permanently. The opening has to be stitched. We can offer help by making stools loose and by applying hernia belt externally. With this, chances of the hernia increasing and being strangulated are much reduced.
You can have trifla vati or panch sakar churan to keep bowel slightly loose.
Wish you perfect health.
