What are the best things to do when you have Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are also called piles and are swollen veins in the lower rectum and anus; they are like varicose veins but just in a different location.  Hemorrhoids can be either internal or external so they can develop in the skin inside the rectum or under the skin around the anus.  Around three-quarters of adults will experience Hemorrhoids at some time during their lives, often there is a specific and defined cause such as pregnancy but there doesn’t have to be an obvious causation, Hemorrhoids can just happen.  There are topical treatments to ease the misery and discomfort of Hemorrhoids and two of the most effective and popular are Scheriproct and Proctosedyl.  You can buy Scheriproct and Proctosedyl Ointment online from our pharmacy store.

The symptoms of Hemorrhoids
You can’t usually see or feel internal Hemorrhoids and they don’t normally cause any problems but they can give rise to painless bleeding or some irritation when passing stools.  External Hemorrhoids are under the skin around the anus and can cause pain and discomfort and swelling and bleeding during bowel movements.

Treatment for Hemorrhoids
Topical creams and gels can help ease hemorrhoid problems but removing some of the known possible causes will help minimise them as well.  These include:-

  • Sitting for long periods of time
  • Chronic diarrhoea or constipation
  • Excess weight can contribute to the likelihood of painful Hemorrhoids
  • Pregnancy because of the weight of the foetus
  • Low fibre diet
  • Excess lifting

Age is also a factor in hemorrhoid problems as the veins and tissues in the rectum weaken as people get older.  Treating an obvious (and treatable) cause will reduce if not eliminate completely the pain and discomfort of Hemorrhoids and topical creams will help with the symptoms until the issue has resolved.
