Doctor insights on:
Prescribed 3 weeks anusol for external hemorrhoids, how long before I notice it really start to work? I've had them persisting for about 2 years.
Diet and exercise: Hemorrhoids are enlarged veins in the rectal area. Anusol only for relief of itching and pain, not a cure for hemorrhoids. Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, together with plenty of fluids, softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. In addition, exercise can help with bowel movement. ...Read more

To minimize any steroid absorption, how many times/day and for how many days you apply anusol hc 2.5%cream to treat internal hemorrhoid inflammation.?
Daily: Apply the cream daily. If you have a bowel movement then do a sitz bath then the cream. This should minimize the itch. Hopefully the duration of treatment is less than a week. In general if you treat yourself for a week and notice no improvement then see your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Anusol seems to be shrinking hemorrhoids, but now some of them turning into small (whitehead sized) hard bumps that are itchy and hurt, is this normal?
Which is more effective and common treatment for internal hemorrhoids inflammation: canasa 1000 mg suppository or anusol hc 2.5% cream. Thanks.
Canasa/Anusol: To treat internal hemorrhoid, I would recommend Anusol Hc 2.5% cream instead of canasa. Canasa enema is used to treat inflammation on the left side of the colon in ulcerative colitis. Suggest high fiber diet with diet supplement (goal of 25-30 grams per day), adequate hydration, avoid straining, avoid soap at anal area. If all failed, hemorrhoidal banding or other modalities. ...Read more
What is the difference between anusol ointment and cream?! Can I continue taking iron tablets after a hemorrhoids surgery? When can I have sex?
No substantial difference between ointment and cream. You may continue taking iron tablets as prescribed by your doctor. You may have sex when you are ready and feel like having it.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
I'm a gay male and I have external hemorrhoids that don't seem to be responding well to Anusol HC. Is it possible to return to "pain free" anal sex if I get a hemorrhoid surgery? Can it be normal again?
Diagnosed with hemorrhoids after a colonoscopy, I feel blocked up and struggle to poop is this normal? Finished anusol and no change in bowel habits.
Constipation: Hemorrhoid veins are a normal finding at colonoscopy and can become inflamed or irritated by chronic straining and constipation. These veins would not be the cause of constipation, and anusol will not correct constipation. Drink more water, eat more fiber (fruits, vegetables, metamucil), avoid fried and junk foods. ...Read more

No, please don't!: This could lead to injury or infection. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in a bathtub with warm water. There needs to be enough water to submerge the anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. An alternative is placing ¼ cup of witch hazel ; warm water in a basin. Soak for at least 15 minutes, at least twice a day. See your doctor for more help. ...Read more
Hemorrhoids are very common. They occur from a stasis of blood flow in the blood vessels that go to our lower intestines. As you get older you are less active and sit for longer periods of time.

Maybe: External hemorrhoids usually hurt and occassionally bleed, internal hemorrhoids usually bleed without pain unless they prolapse to the outside. Prolapsed internal hemorrhoids are not external hemorrhoids and are treated differently than true external hemorrhoids. Bleeding and pain is often a fissure. Get a colon and rectal surgeon to evaluate it properly. ...Read more
Rarely need to.: First, see your doctor to make sure your problem really is hemorrhoids. Serious problems are frequently blamed on "hemorrhoids". Hemorrhoids can usually be treated medically by avoiding constipation and avoiding straning with a bowel movement. If pain/itching present, try soaking in tub. If not better they can be removed by different methods (band ligation or surgery) but I rarely recommend these. ...Read more
