Vik Don't Neglect Rectal Trouble Many people think that rectal troubles such as Piles, Fissure, TJ1- Â· Pruritus (Itching) have little bearing on the well being and icalth of the individual but records show that any person so afflicted s not up to his normal efficiency and reports from patients who have seen treated for these troubles show thatthey really did not know what real living was until after having their trouble taken care of. Rectal troubles cause nervousness, sleeplessness, constipation and many other ailments that make life a drudgery instead of n pleasure. Then the percentage of neglected cases that develop into incurable conditions is too great to take chances. Most all cases of Piles anc a large per cent of other recta troubles can be cured without much inconvenience to the patient.
