Hello doctor,

I am having a piles problem. I had blood in my stool for about one month, and now a lump is felt outside of my anus. I need some medication. Please suggest.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your issue. It does not confirm that you have piles but, it could be most probably piles. Is it painful when it bleeds or not painful? Is the blood coated on stools or does it drip down, or blood mixed with stools and mucus? Do you have constipation or hard to pass stools? Was there bleeding after an episode of constipation or passage of hard stools? Is the lump outside the anus painful? Have you been previously diagnosed with piles?

The best thing to do is get it examined by a gastroenterologist to confirm the diagnosis. I would suggest you some laxative for some time if you do not have loose stools. It could help to heal.

Syrup Looz (Lactulose solution) 30 ml at night before bedtime for two weeks and Anovate cream (anti-haemorrhoidal cream with Beclomethasone Dipropionate) for local application twice a day for ten days. I would advise you to consult a gastroenterologist at the earliest to have it assessed properly.
