Pls mention drugs that will worst hemorrhoids & foods to be avoided when one having hemorrhoids????

Hemorrhoids worse: Constipation is what makes hemorrhoids worse, both because of straining, and because of rubbing of a hard stool. Any drug or food which causes constipation will therefore make it worse. But you can prevent this by always taking stool softeners like Colace, (docusate sodium) and eating lots of salads and drinking lots of fluids to prevent constipation. ...Read more

Can internal hemorrhoids more and other issues than external ones if left untreated? My dr diagnosed my ext hemorrhoids only by sight and didn't chec

Hemorrhoids vary: Hemorrhoids are varicose veins of our anus. They can be inside or outside. They can arise from lots of different things, but genetics plays a role. Some hemorrhoids gradually enlarge, and internal ones may bleed or "fall out" with the need to push them back in. Surgery may be justified then. External ones are just a nuisance for hygiene --> trapped stool causes itching. Talk with your dr. ...Read more

Veins: Hemorrhoids are normal veins in the anal canal. They can become inflamed or enlarged with constipation or prolonged and repeated straining to have a bowel movement. Treated at home by avoiding constipation, drink plenty of liquids, eat more fiber (fruits, vegetables, metamucil), avoid junk foods. See a surgeon if symptoms persist. ...Read more

I had hemorrhoidectomy one month ago. Will coughing from colds cause hemorrhoids to come back?

Hemorrhoids.: When a hemorrhoidectomy is performed, the doctor doesn’t excise every vein that could potentially become a hemorrhoid in the future. So you certainly can get new hemorrhoids from varying mechanisms after a hemorrhoidectomy. ...Read more

@ what point does one need to worry about hemorrhoids and polyps. I bled quite a bit today. Blood was bright red and I can feel a polyp there. Can I just leave this be?

Probably hemorrhoid: What you think is a polyp is probably an internal hemorrhoid. No one bleeds to death from a hemorrhoid, but they can become very painful quickly. You need a surgeon to take a look and he can probably band your hemorrhoids while he's looking. ...Read more

Doc how do I get rid of hemorrhoids they live one week comes back?

Eat fiber: Hemorrhoid are dilated veins that turn bad and they stay bad all the medical treatment that we recommend does not get rid of them it only minimize the symptoms

surgery should be last option. ...Read more

I have an anal fissure and have always had problems with hemorrhoids. Can a colonoscopy help with either one?

I have an anal fissure and have always had problems with hemorrhoids. Can a colonoscopy help with either one?

Anal fissure: A colonoscopy can rule out additional diagnosis, but does not treat with fissure or hemorrhoid. An exam of rectum under anesthesia with fissure repair and hemorrhoid removal could be of benefit. Ask for surgical referral/consult. Take a friend with you to hear the risk/benefit analysis and details of supporting you through recovery. Good luck. ...Read more

Why do I have external hemorrhoids/skin tags but no internal hemorrhoids? I thought the external ones came from inside. Thank you.

Why do I have external hemorrhoids/skin tags but no internal hemorrhoids? I thought the external ones came from inside. Thank you.

External hemorrhoids: Usually the hemorrhoidal cushions or vein complexes originate internally. The shear forces secondary to either straining with constipation or frequent bowel movements associated with diarrhea can lead to prolapse of the anal lining (mucosa) and associated hemorrhoids. If they clot or thrombose, they can be quite painful. When the acute inflammation resides you may be left with redundant skin. ...Read more

I sometimes get hemorrhoids and im really scared to have anal sex because I can't stand having another breakout. They come and go and IV had at least one break out a year since my junior year in highschool im 24 now. I can't imagine why that would happen.

Hemorrhoids: In a young person occur most commonly because of chronic constipation and lack of fiber in your diet. Anal sex is another matter entirely, and can certainly provide another means of aggravating or causing recurrent hemorrhoids, especially in a gay male. Make sure your partner uses a condom, adequate lubrication, and be safe. ...Read more

Yes it can wait: If it is a thrombosed hemorrhoid that it will be a tender nodule near the outlet of the anus. Soaking in warm water will be helpful. Ibuprofen for the pain. If it is excised within the first 48 hours the healing is a bit faster otherwise figure 10-14 days for resolution. It should be evaluated to make sure it is not something else such as a developing infection. ...Read more

Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are a common problem, which result from increased pressure in the veins of the anus causing the veins to swell, making them itchy and painful (particularly if the hemorrhoid clots, also known as thrombosis). Occasionally bright red blood on toilet tissue, stool, or in the toilet bowl can be seen, particularly after passage of a hard stool. The most common cause is straining during bowel movements due to constipation. Hemorrhoid can also be a manifestation of more serious disease, such as liver cirrhosis.

Hemorrhoids may exist either inside or outside the body - internal hemorrhoids occur just inside the anus, at the beginning of the rectum, whereas external hemorrhoids occur at the anal opening and may hang outside the anus, these can be detected by examining the anal area to see if tissue is protruding outside of the anus.

I am not sure that the rash you describe is due to hemorrhoids. While you don't state whether the rash is painful, raised or warm (which would more indicate the presence of an infection), I would guess that the irritation is due to non-specific inflammation. The intensity of anal itching and the amount of inflammation increases from the direct trauma of scratching and the presence of moisture. At its most intense, anal itching causes intolerable discomfort that often is described as burning and soreness.

Anal itching can be caused by irritating chemicals in the foods we eat, such as are found in spices, hot sauces, and peppers. In addition, continuous moisture in the anus can be worsened by caused by frequent liquid stools, diarrhea, or escape of small amounts of stool (incontinence). Moisture increases the possibility of infections of the anus, especially yeast, particularly in patients with diabetes mellitus.

I would suggest that you take a shower or bath every day, dry the area very carefully. To that you can add astringents, which promotes dryness of the skin, which in turn helps relieve burning, itching, and pain. Examples of astringents include: calamine 5% to 25% zinc oxide 5% to 25% (calmol 4, nupercainal, tronolane), witch hazel 10% to 50% (fleet medicated, tucks, witch hazel hemorrhoidal pads)

analgesic products are local anesthetic products, relieve pain, itching, and burning by depressing receptors on pain nerves. Examples of analgesics include: menthol 0.1% to 1.0% (greater than 1.0% is not recommended), camphor 0.1% to 3% (greater than 3% is not recommended), juniper tar 1% to 5%.

Lastly, corticosteroids reduce inflammation and can relieve itching, but should not be used for more than short periods of a few days to two weeks. Only products with weak corticosteroid effects are available over-the-counter should be used. ...Read more

Red blood in toilet twice yesterday. One small movement in between did not have blood. Passed hard stools a couple times last week. Hemorrhoids?

Can hemorrhoids cause referred pain? When ever I get one that side of my buttocks is tender to touch and into my privates a lil and my leg.

Can hemorrhoids cause referred pain? When ever I get one that side of my buttocks is tender to touch and into my privates a lil and my leg.

Possibly.: Tenderness to the touch isn't strictly speaking "referred pain" but pain in areas that have the same nerve supply as the rectum certainly is. I'm left with a question for you, however. Are you certain that your symptoms are caused by hemorrhoids? I recommend that, the next time this happens, you see a doctor to be sure. Herpes, for example, can cause similar symptoms. ...Read more
