Question:My baby is 3 months old and i got piles . What to do
Answer: It is common to get piles after pregnancy due to the pressure on rectum while delivering the baby.
I would recommend you to drink at least eight to ten glasses of water every day to avoid constipation and eat watery fruits that contain more of water such as watermelon, oranges, grapes these will help you improve fast and also help you breastfeed milk properly.
Eating a fibrous meal is very important when you feel constipated also it will help your body to ease out stools properly. Include more of cereals, dals and bread in your diet.
Eating plain yoghurt, banana with yoghurt and any probiotic supplement that your gynae might prescribe you, or if not then you can yourself choose probiotic supplements like Yakult available on pharmacy outlets, these will help your digestive system also reducing the bowel discomfort.
You must exercise.
Kegel exercise is helpful to strengthen the anal and rectal muscles which will help the recovery process. in improving the circulation in the rectal area.
frequently visit the loo whenever you feel a little grumble in your stomach or movements, don't hold back the stools as it may dry up inside your rectum and will be difficult to pass later on.
Apply an ice pack on the infected area to reduce swelling and immediate relief from pain.
Ensure the ice pack has a soft covering.
Take painkillers as prescribed by your gynae.
you should apply cream or lotion provided by your gynae over the anal area thrice or more in a day.
laxatives in the form of oral suspensions are helpful to lubricate the stools and prevent extra pressure on rectum
take Evict or similar laxative 5ml three-four times a day.
With all the medical advice we also recommend to take turmeric in food and also apply a thick paste over the infected area, turmeric helps in healing.
if your piles don't respond to the above recommendations or you feel more pain than before, or see blood in the stools even after a month of treatment, then you should visit your gynae to know more about the current status.
Hope it helps!
