Hi there ...
Thank you for the question ....
Symptomatic Schatzki rings may be treated with esophageal dilation , using bougie or balloon dilators. These have been found to be equally effective.Bougie dilatation involves passage of long dilating tubes of increasing size down the esophagus to stretch the area of narrowing, either over a guidewire passed into the stomach by endoscopy .
At home nothing can be done , this should be done in hospital setup .
Please go to dr .
Good luck .
Positive feedback will be appreciated .
