Indeed. See below.: Hemorrhoid tissue is normal, occupies the wall of the low anal canal, and helps maintain continence of stool and gas. Problems like straining or constipation cause them to become floppy and protrude or bleed. Hemorrhoidectomy removes only the most prominent tissue. If the original cause of the hemorrhoidal problem isn't improved, other hemorrhoid tissue can become symptomatic. Increase your fiber. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can look like a lot: Sometimes hemorrhoid bleeding can look like a lot because of the toilet bowl "filling" up with what looks like the whole bowl but it really is just diluted blood. Rarely can some people bleed enough to get anemic from it. If it is a recurrent problem that topical otc creams/suppositories don't help, see a GI specialist to get scoped just to be on the safe side. ...Read more
No: The excellent circulation to the rectum and the resulting delivery of infection fighting blood cells make hemorrhoid infections pretty rare. The itching and redness at the rectal opening is often complicated by yeast (monilial) colonization from the bowel. I've found the use of an antifungal (eg Clotrimazole which is over the counter) and some cortisone cream very helpful to get rid of the itch. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Experiencing periodic bleeding with hemorrhoids. How often is too often when it comes to this type of bleeding?
2-3 per week: Most of the time hemorrhoids are treated based on how they limit your lifestyle. Some should be treated if they are a higher grade (they are graded 1-4), but it's usually based on your preference. If they are bleeding more than 2-3 times per week, I recommend seeing your family doctor to discuss your options based on your exam. Treatments can be diet modification, banding and surgery. ...Read more

Have had hemorrhoid for about 2 years. Used proctafoam maybe 2 times. Would this heal it? It has been bleeding. Could I do something without surgery?
Possibly: A hemorrhoid that is external and bleeding can usually be managed in office. A bleeding internal hemorrhoid may require rubber banding or some other form of surgery. Use the proctofoam twice daily, increase caffeine free fluids to 80-100 oz per day and if not improved in a week or so see a colon and rectal specialist. Good luck. ...Read more

The first things are conservative including increasing fluid and fiber in diet to ensure that you bms are soft, losing weight, limiting the time sitting on the toilet.
