This is the era of fast foods. Irregularity in food timing, improper diet, and mental stress coupled with a sedentary life disturb the digestive system resulting in increased incidence of hemorrhoids. In the present report, we present two cases of intero-external hemorrhoids. Case 1: A 30-year old young male approached with intero-external hemorrhoid at 11 O'clock position as a primary. Case 2: A 41-year-old female visited with second degree intero-external hemorrhoid at 11 O'clock position. Hemorrhoids present in these patients can be considered as Kaphaja Arṣa. These cases were diagnosed by per rectal digital and proctoscopic examinations by ayurvedic proctologists. In both cases, application of Jîmūtaka Lepa was done under local anesthesia administered using lignocaine 2% with adrenaline. This was followed by manual anal dilatation. Jîmūtaka Lepa was applied to the internal hemorrhoids (Arṣa). Changes were observed in the form of edema, ulcer in 3-4 days and sloughing out of the pile mass up to 5-7 days. Subsequently fibrosis of hemorrhoidal masses started after 7 days. Jîmūtaka Lepa shows a significant effect in obliterating the hemorrhoidal mass within a month of application. The patients were followed-up regularly with proctoscopic examination in each visit and did not reveal any evidence of recurrence of the hemorrhoids.
