The hemorrhoids are treated initially to relieve the symptoms. The following measures can be followed for getting relief from internal hemorrhoids.

Ice Packs – If the hemorrhoids are severe, apply an icepack at the anal part.

Treat the affected areas with cortisone creams or suppositories, petroleum jelly, or hemorrhoidal cream.

Cotton underwear and loose clothing should be worn.

Use moist toilet paper and wipe the anus after emptying the bowel.

Pain killers – reduces the discomfort and itchy feeling but are not meant for curing hemorrhoids.

Enemas – normally acts as a bowel stimulant.It will relieve you from constipation and fecal impaction.

OTC medications

If the hemorrhoid is in its early stages, you can get this treated by OTC hemorrhoids treatment. Some of the commonly used types of medicines are creams, petroleum jellies, ointments, and laxatives. The well-known method is to apply hemorrhoids cream that has hydrocortisone and antiseptics.

The treatments carried out for internal hemorrhoids are as follows.

Rubber Band Ligation – This treatment is carried out at the outpatient department; this is useful for treating 2nd degree internal hemorrhoids. This is a non-surgical procedure wherein a rubber band is tied on the tissue inflamed thereby reducing the blood flow.

Injection Sclerotherapy – is a medical process where the surgeon injects a chemical solution into the mucous membrane in the vicinity of the hemorrhoid. This chemical solution is responsible for shrinking the hemorrhoid by helping in inflammation and closure of veins.

Infrared Photocoagulation – is suitable for treating small/medium size hemorrhoids. The doctor applies heat on the hemorrhoids using the IR device, which coagulates the hemorrhoid’s dilated veins. The coagulated blood vessels cuts off the blood flow and the hemorrhoids die.

Laser Coagulation – involves passing of an electric current through the hemorrhoids; this current causes a chemical reaction. This new technique results in stopping the blood supply to the hemorrhoids which in turn causes the hemorrhoids to shrink.

Hemorrhoidectomy – It is a surgical procedure applied on the hemorrhoid groups. The groups of hemorrhoid in the anal canal are surgically removed using a laser, cautery device or scalpel.

The above are just some ways to treat Hemorrhoids. Seek professional advice if you are going ahead with any of the above.
