Background & objectives
Haemorrhoids are certainly one of the commonest ailments that afflict mankind. Bleeding and prolapse are the cardinal symptoms of haemorrhoids. Pain, mucus discharge and Itching, are the other most common complaints from the patients. This leads to reduced work efficiency, quality of life and increased financial burden on the patients. Homoeopathy is reported to have a significant role in haemorrhoids in both classical literature and recent studies. However, its efficacy in the South Indian population has not yet been reported. Thus, an effort has been made to find out the effectiveness of Homoeopathic treatment in haemorrhoids.
