FAQ's For Hemorrhoids

   

Hemorrhoids usually go away with a week of home treatment. However, if you are experiencing severe pain and bleeding even after a week, seek medical assistance.

Hemorrhoids are enlarged or swollen veins, which appear as a tiny bulge. They often cause itching and discomfort around the anus.

Apply OTC ointments, creams and suppositories containing hydrocortisone, witch hazel or lidocaine.

External hemorrhoids do go back inside the rectum without intervention. However, you can push a haemorrhoid back in yourself to ease pain.

If left untreated, hemorrhoids may cause further complications due to added pressure. These complications include anaemia, blood clots, or a strangulated hemorrhoid.

     
Piles, or hemorroids, are swollen veins in the anus or lower rectum. There are two types: external hemorrhoids (found under the skin around the anus) and internal hemorrhoids (found inside the rectum). Symptoms of hemorrhoids include:
External hemorrhoids:
Itching around the anus
Swelling around the anus
Bleeding
Pain or discomfort

When blood pools in an external hemorrhoid and forms a clot called a thrombosed hemorrhoid, it can cause:
Swelling
Severe pain
Hard lump near the anus
Inflammation

Internal hemorrhoids: 
Blood in the stool without experiencing pain
Pain and irritation due to a prolapsed or protruding hemorrhoid

Hemorrhoids are caused by increased pressure on the lower rectum. The anus can bulge or swell from stretching. Some common hemorrhoid causes include:
Pregnancy
Obesity
Chronic diarrhoea or constipation
Strain during bowel movements.
Anal intercourse
Regularly lifting heavy weights
Low-fiber diet
 
Piles treatment will involve medication, minimally invasive procedures, or surgical procedures depending on the specific case. For hemorrhoids pain, doctors may suggest OTC pain relievers, as well as ointments and creams containing witch hazel, lidocaine, or hydrocortisone to help ease itchiness and discomfort. Some minimally invasive procedures for hemorrhoids treatment include:
Rubber band ligation
Coagulation (laser, infrared or bipolar)
Injection (sclerotherapy)

Surgical procedures used in removing or fixing hemorrhoids include:
Haemorrhoidectomy
Haemorrhoid stapling

Besides this, there are several home remedies which help in dealing with pain and itchiness.
Switch to a high-fiber diet

Use topical treatments containing hydrocortisone or witch hazel
Use pads with numbing agents
Soak the anus regularly in a warm bath for 10-15 minutes about 2-3 times per day
Use OTC pain relievers like acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB)
 
HerbsDaily offers a wide range of supplements which help ease the discomfort of hemorrhoids.
