Hemorrhoid Remedy For Everyone

By Arielle O. Sartin

One of the socially dreaded sickness is hemorrhoids. Frustration and depression usually results from the distress and embarrassment produced by hemorrhoids. A hemorrhoid remedy is now easy to find through the internet. It can provide a lot of resources ranging from information on the disease, lists of clinics and doctors specializing in hemorrhoid treatment to alternative treatments.

Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed blood vessels of the rectal and anal area. They are consequences to conditions such as chronic constipation or diarrhea which causes excessive straining. Other causes are pregnancy, anal intercourse and aging. Hemorrhoids may be internal, where the blood vessels are inside the rectal vault and external, where irritated blood vessels are outside the anus.

The most common signs of hemorrhoids is the presence of blood when you defecate, you can usually notice it when you wipe with a tissue or directly streaked on stool. This is attributed to rupture of small blood vessels during defecation. Another sign is itching or burning sensation around the anus. This can cause distress and embarrassment especially when in a public place or gatherings. The itching is caused by disturbance of the tissues due to fecal materials that were left behind, especially with external hemorrhoids. Sometimes a hard mass that is painful can be felt around the anal area. This may be a thrombosed hemorrhoid.

Medical treatment for hemorrhoids initially begins with relief of symptoms. Hot sitz bath, where the person sits on a basin with warm water is recommended. Hemorrhoid ointments and suppositories are also available. Increasing fluid intake as well as food rich in fiber is also suggested to keep the stool soft and prevent recurrence. Stool softeners as well as supplemental fibers are also prescribed.

Some cases cannot be treated with just these measures and need procedures to remove the hemorrhoids. These are usually advanced cases that have been neglected for a long time. Some of these medical procedures are rubber band ligation, sclerotherapy, infrared coagulation and hemorrhoidectomy. These are procedures that directly remove the hemorrhoid.

In order to prevent the recurrence, the main cause of hemorrhoids is treated. Stool softeners are given for constipation and antimotility medicine for diarrhea. Both conditions are recommended to increase fiber intake as well as fluids except alcohol. These last recommendations are also applicable for the old people and pregnant women unless there are medical contraindications.

There are also other alternative treatments for hemorrhoids, thanks to alternative and traditional medicine. There are different treatments depending on the type of traditional healing. Some treatments include herbal drugs and potions, others are treated with acupuncture or acupressure, and some are treated with food and lifestyle modification. These can also be effective if operation is out of the question for you.

There are also many internet sites that can help. You can find information on health facilities for medical and alternative treatment of hemorrhoids as well as directories of alternative healers and doctors. There are also downloadable e-books that range from self help books on how to live with hemorrhoids to hemorrhoid remedy secrets that can eliminate them for good.

Hemorrhoid is a disabling disease that needs a hemorrhoid remedy because of its social implications. Here are some convenient tips on finding a hemorrhoid remedy online.
