Depends: Many hemorrhoids can be treated by surgical excision. Although it sounds horrific, the area can easily be numbed and the hemorrhoid removed. Still other hemorrhoids can be banded and they will fall off. However, there is always the possibility of recurrence. Mainstays in treatment include stool softners, plenty of fiber, maintaining a good diet, and limiting time on the commode. ...Read more

I Am constipated & have hemorrhoids from the birth of my child. What medicines can I take that don't have any effects on breastfeeding?

I Am constipated & have hemorrhoids from the birth of my child. What medicines can I take that don't have any effects on breastfeeding?

Constipation.: in this setting, the ideal would be to avoid medication altogether, if possible. I would begin by increasing the amount of fiber in your diet and considering taking a fiber supplement, such as Metamucil, daily. When you do that, you need to increase your fluid intake also. If you increase this gradually, it will not cause excess gassiness. Good luck. ...Read more

Hemorrhoid tags: Hemorrhoid tags are common especially in women after childbirth. They are usually of no great concern. Wash well after BMs and apply small amount of moisturize e.g. aloe or body moisturing cream. Avoid constipation as straining at the stool causes hemorrhoids to flare. Get adequate fluid and fiber in your diet of high vegetable and fruits. ...Read more
