Home Remedies For a Burning Rectum

The rectum is a 5 inches long, last straight section of the human colon, which leads to the anal canal. There are many conditions that may cause the burning of the rectum. Conditions such as proctitis, haemorrhoids, pregnancy, unhygienic conditions, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), anal fissures, and more may cause pain in the rectum with and without inflammation and bleeding.

Let us discuss some home remedies for the burning of the rectum. The remedies that can offer great relief to patients suffering from this irritating condition include:

1. Mango Seeds

Mangoes have natural anti-inflammatory components in the seeds which become functional when they are crushed. Patients suffering from burning sensations in their rectum should consume 2 grams of dried mango seeds powder with honey twice a day.

2. Coriander Seeds

Coriander seeds are also considered effective remedies for piles and other conditions. Uncomfortable conditions like burning and bleeding of the rectum can be easily treated with this remedy. Consume water of overnight soaked coriander seeds in water before sleeping at night.

3. Banana

Consuming mashed bananas with a cup of boiled milk can reduce the burning sensation in the rectum. Potassium present in bananas acts as a vasodilator, leading to less stress and pressure on the veins around the rectum. Potassium also acts as an astringent, which shrinks or tightens body tissues, including the tissue that becomes inflamed during rectal irritation.

The soluble fibre in bananas dissolves in water and slows digestion, whereas insoluble fibre promotes gut motility and increases stool bulk helping those with constipation.

4. Cranberries

Cranberries are known to be anti-inflammatory in nature. They are also prescribed for serious intestinal and stomach disorders.

Placing one spoon of blended cranberries tied inside the cheesecloth in the rectum can relieve the burning sensations and pain caused by piles.

5. Figs

Soak at least 4 figs in the water at night and consume them in the morning on an empty stomach. A decoction from fig leaves, when applied topically, externally on the irritated area, can help relieve the burning sensation in the rectum.

6. Cumin Seeds

Cumin helps to shrink haemorrhoids and relieve burning sensations in the anus. Mix cumin seeds powder with water to form a thick paste. Gently apply the paste to the anus to make the area cool and quickly eliminate the burning sensation.

7. Curd and Buttermilk

Probiotics can help you ease constipation. Buttermilk has the ability to reduce the temperature of the body and produce a cooling effect. Regularly consuming buttermilk will help get rid of the burning sensation in the rectum.

8. Hot & Cold Packs

The use of hot and cold packs is a great way to deal with the pain and discomfort of haemorrhoids quickly! Use of hot and cold packs externally to eliminate the feeling of burning caused by piles in the rectum.

Sitting in a warm tub of water gives relief from burning.

9. Radish

Radishes are rich in fibre, regulate bowel movements, stimulate peristaltic motion and secrete digestive juices.

Consuming radishes in their grated form or in the form of juice by adding salt to them can help. The paste of radish mixed with milk is also a good remedy for haemorrhoids.

Radishes are an emmenagogue (are herbs that stimulate blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus), as well as anti-inflammatory agents used for a variety of health conditions.

10. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is well known for its medicinal properties. Applying the Aloe Vera to the anus externally helps to reduce the burning sensation. It has natural soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.


Avoiding spicy food, caffeinated drinks, and sugar-rich foods in excess amounts can further reduce the symptoms associated with rectal burning.
