What is the best cure for piles? I seem to have an external one that is not painful, but is obviously irritating.
Does it subside on it''s own? What can I do to speed it up? I have been using Bactroban on it.

The best cure for piles is to have it surgically removed but if it is not painful, you can use Scheriproct suppositries and Proctocydil ointment. Remember to keep your stools soft by consuming a lot of water and by using a product Solgar Multiple fibre capsules (available at health shops).
