suddenly piles

Hi I noticed there are many topics about this but the reason why I ask again is because this is very unexpected.

I have never suffered from constipation and always been quite active, also eating lots of fibre (green vegetables, seeds etc). Had difficult labour 5 years ago after which had piles, since then nothing since last week when suddenly had one horrible thing sticking out, don't know why now. Can this suddenness out of the blue help in identifying the right remedy? It feels like a stick or splinter in my bottom, worse when sitting down, cold makes better. It has not gone down in size nor can I press it in. No special feelings when it occurred. Help! Can't have marital relations with my husband now, too embarrassed. Oh and don't know my constituional type but am like Sulphur in my toilet habits in the morning.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Try aloe socratina 30c twice a day for three days only. Wait for another four days and come back.

dear patient,

you claimed to be yourself as sulpher: please read it with Aloes:

Sublimated Sulphur

This is great Hahnemannian anti-psoric. Its action is centrifugal-from within outward-having an elective affinity for the skin, where it produces heat and burning, with itching; made worse by heat of bed. Inertia and relaxation of fiber; hence feebleness of tone characterizes its symptoms. Ebullitions of heat, dislike of water, dry and hard hair and skin, red orifices, sinking feeling at stomach about 11 am, and cat-nap sleep; always indicate Sulphur homeopathically. Standing is the worst position for sulphur patients, it is always uncomfortable. Dirty, filthy people, prone to skin affections. Aversion to being washed. When carefully-selected remedies fail to act, especially in acute diseases, it frequently arouses the reactionary powers of the organism. Complaints that relapse. General offensive character of discharge and exhalations. Very red lips and face, flushing easily. Often great use in beginning the treatment of chronic cases and in finishing acute ones.

Mind.--Very forgetful. Difficult thinking. Delusions; thinks rags beautiful things-that he is immensely wealthy. Busy all the time. Childish peevishness in grown people. Irritable. Affections vitiated; very selfish, no regard for others. Religious melancholy. Averse to business; loafs-too lazy to arouse himself. Imagining giving wrong things to people, causing their death. Sulphur subjects are nearly always irritable, depressed, thin and weak, even with good appetite.

Head.--Constant heat on top of head (Cup sulph; Graph). Heaviness and fullness, pressure in temples. Beating headache; worse, stooping, and with vertigo. Sick headache recurring periodically. Tinea capitis, dry form. Scalp dry, falling of hair; worse, washing. Itching; scratching causes burning.

>> On the second day Start from Aloes-30 as recommended by mr. murthy.

and come back after a week.

Dear Dr.Mahfooz

Aloes is also known as 'vegetable sulphur'. :-)

They seem to be so similar.

Homoeopathy and Homoeopathic Prescribing - Google Books Resultby Harvey Farrington, A. Jayasurya - 2002 - Health & Fitness - 928 pages

If Podophyllum merits the title of 'vegetable mercury, ' certainly Aloe should be called the 'vegetable sulphur. ' Sulphur is the deeper acting of the two, ...

Mr. murthy
Thanks for your references.
Normaly it is admitted that Aloes belongs to vegetable kingdom and Sulpher is complementry to it.

Mahfoozurrehman last decade
thanks for advice, this forum is brilliant. I don't have aloe at home and it would take a few days to order so I will try sulphur. I have it at home and more things from the sulphur lists match for me than with aloe. BTW I thought of possibly Ignatia as an option as had been thinking about my sister with whom I have a bad relationship.
pangolin last decade
No. Please take only Sulpher and report.

Hi have taken Sulphur 6C and much better now. There is no discomfort and it is much smaller but not gone completely. Thanks
pangolin last decade
Now please try sulpher-30c for a week and report.

Mahfoozurrehman last decade
Only bought sulphur 30 now so will report later. Should this mean that I am less likely to get this problem in the future?
pangolin last decade
Any update please.

Mahfoozurrehman last decade
problem disappeared, it's just a small fold of skin now. I will stop taking sulphur 30, had last the day before yesterday. Getting a flu now or otherwise nose driping and bad breath...thanks for all the advice.
