Hemorrhoids are a common problem that usually strikes 90% of people at least once in their lifetime. Also known as piles, they are swollen pads of tissue in and around the anal area.

The right use of these medications and changes in lifestyle can effectively aid in alleviating hemorrhoids symptoms. 

The Chinese have employed several remedies to heal this condition. They use traditional herbs and medicines to provide relief from the pain, swelling, itching, and irritation.
