How Much Hemorrhoid Bleeding Is Considered Too Much
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
Time works but...: Bleed usually resolves in a few days. Depends on what you have already tried. 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.

Surgeon: I suggest surgical excision and definitive treatment. I would also suggest Sitz baths 3-4 times daily and the use of OTC hemorrhoidal preparations such as Anusol or have your physician call in Anusol HC or Procto- Foam. http://www.healthguidance.org/entry/14749/1/Sitz-Bath-Recipe.html ...Read more
I am suffering from internal hemorrhoids since 7 years. But nowadays its bleeding too much. Help.
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.

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

May be thrombosed: A thrombosed hemorrhoid occurs when the blood vessel within the hemorrhoid becomes clotted. It then becomes swollen and painful. The natural history is that the blood clot will eventually dissolve, but it will often takes 2 wks or more. Sitting in a tub of warm water may help with pain, as sell as Proctofoam.
