Home Remedies For External Hemorrhoids
Shrink vs remove: External hemorrhoids hurt when inflamed. Creams, ointments can help with flareups as can avoiding constipation by keeping your fluid and fiber up and dropping weight if obese. Still, these things do not remove the hemorrhoid. If a continuing problem or if acutely painful (thrombosed) then excision with surgery is the answer. This can be done as an outpatient. Good luck. Feel better soon. ...Read more

I have external hemorrhoids (piles). Can I consume Arcoxia for pain relief? Or what can I do to relieve pain & cure it at home as quickly as possible?
Simple remedies: For piles, topical preparations work rather well - Preparation H, witch hazel pads, etc. Avoid alcohol and anything that can damage the liver, avoid fatty, rich foods. Arcoxia is a COX-2 inhibitor (like Celebrex (celecoxib) and the now-removed Vioxx) that is available in Australia - not sure where you are getting it from if you are in US. It can only help temporarily, and is best to avoid it if possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: While you can certainly make them feel better, they don't go away. Ideas for making them feel better include sitz baths (soak in warm water), ice packs, using a soothing cleanser like balneol instead of wet wipes or dry toilet paper. Avoid sitting on the toilet for more than 5-10 minutes. Increase your fiber to regulate your bowel movements so they are neither too soft nor too hard. ...Read more

No: No they usually don't unless you have difficulty cleaning and there is residual stool that remains on the external hemorrhoid after each bm. I would recommend sitz baths after bms if you note an odor. If there continues to be an odor you may have a perianal abscess which would be accompanied by pain and pus drainage. For this you need to go to the er for treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: You can never remove all of the external hemorrhoids even with surgery. What most people think are external hemorrhoids are actually residual benign skin tags from prior hemorrhoidal flares. I personally do not recommend witch hazel ever, as many people will develop a sensitivity reaction, like an allergic reaction, to it after repeated use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How'd you get them?: "healing" depends on whether the original cause for hemorrhoids persists. Have you been straining at stool, have rectal dysfunction, perform an activity that increases pelvic engorgement with blood or increases pelvic pressure (heavy lifting, prolonged sitting, etc.)? Have your hemorrhoids been surgically or medically managed (& with otc or prescription drugs)? Too many variables here to know... ...Read more
