Our skin consists of two layers which differ in structure and in origin. the cuticle also known as scarf of skin. Also known as cutis Vera corium or dermis.its thickness of 0.1mm to 1mm.the true layer is fibrous layer which forms the chief part of the body covering. Its thickness is .5mm to 3mm. The thickness is less in female than male.the skin contains two types of glands sebaceous which secretes a fatty substance called sebum.and the second type are the sweat glands which secrete a watery fluid which is necessary for the skin to maintain the temperature and softness.The skin is the biggest organ in our body and the main function is to protect the internal organs and from other organisms and viruses etc.the other functions of skin are secretion.heat regulation .In Ayurveda skin is called as TWAK meaning skin. There are seven layers and each has its own characteristics. The diseases of skin are categorized as simple and complicated which they called as KSHUDRA VYADHI which are curable. And those which are  degenerative into 18 types and 7types are very difficult to treatment and they called them as  lepra  type which is termed as KUSHTA VYADHI  where the skin will start to degenerate to the level of bones and other organs.

                                                                   PILES OR HEMORRHOIDS
Piles or hemorrhoids are called as ARSHASU meaning that which effects the  body or an enemy that bothers our body . Ayurveda  has defined this as vata pitta kapha and sannipataja  raktaja abhighataja  or sahaja that which occurs due to birth or injuries or hereditary factors    

in modern science they are called due to the varicose  veins (where the veins get folded or blocked and engorged ) inflamed condition of rhe veins around the anal canal hence the patient complains of small skin tags coming out at the end of anal tract 

the primary cause of piles is constipation  or  diarrhea where the walls of the anal canal undergo pressure and produce the venal varicose.some morbid conditions of liver also said to produce pressure on veins

sinple way of defining piles is of two types 1) external 2) internal  and dry and bleeding are two types. those piles with bleeding type are more trouble some  than  dry type .piles are more common in females than male as the female gets during the course of or  post postpartum that is after delivery .

ayurveda says that piles are common in weak .obese and those who strain during defecation. 

Food also plays a major role in piles problem.  It is  mostly seen in people who do not take fluids. and taking plenty alcohol and smoking and cool drinks aggravates piles .taking plenty of non vegetarian foods either raw or fried with
spicy oily salty and sour and bitter foods produces constipation and digestive problems which again produce piles 

piles if neglected may lead to prolapse of the anus or rectum  which is very rare 
the diagnosis of piles is done by manual examination which is called per rectal examination or by sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy.

TREATMENT OF PILES: When the pile mass is small the treatment and the diet works very well 

taking SATVIKA AAHARA MEANING that which assimilates fast and does not produce constipation is the right food . taking plenty fruits and green leafy vegetables enhances the intestinal activity and relieves constipation 
Ayurvedic  texts  advocates drinking plenty of butter milk cures piles.

70% population do have pile masses but they are harmless for some and due to life style and bad food habits the end up into problematic disease 

SYMPTOMS include pain in the rectal canal .pain during or after defecation. lump that is felt in the anal region some times bleeding with mucus discharge 
AYURVEDIC REMEDIES : Taking fluids like water.whole grains. bran and fruits and fruit juices helps in relieving constipation 
Do not strain when passing stools. keep the anal area clean. Do not sit for long hours on an hard object.
HERBAL REMEDIES :  Take three phala powder daily after food with warm water. take ABHAYA karakkayya 1/4 teaspoon in warm water after dinner.
when it comes to treatment its better to consult and a doctor 
the said medicines are for understanding and treatment varies from doctor to doctor.
