Depends: I would not assume piles because of bleeding. You need to have a diagnosis made by your doctor. Do not make an assumption in this case. Get to your doctor asap.

Psyllium Fiber: If you want to only care for this without any surgical intervention, then psyllium fiber or an equivalent is likely the best treatment for long term. Make sure you purchase unflavored psyllium. Start with a teaspoon a night mixed in 16 oz of water every night.
