I was recently diagnosed with internal hemorrhoids. What can I do when I have bleeding. Can I do something to prevent bleeding?

Use stool softener.: Both as treatment and prevention. Eat more fiber, drink more water and exercise more. Hemorrhoids are basically veins that have been injured by our bad habits. Don't let your stools become very hard, the job of the colon is to recover the fluid in the stool;if we do not drink enough water, or eat only highly processed food (no fiber) and don't exercise (the helper to bowel transit) we can expect problems. ...Read more

Psyllium Fiber: If you want to only care for this without any surgical intervention, then psyllium fiber or an equivalent is likely the best treatment for long term. Make sure you purchase unflavored psyllium. Start with a teaspoon a night mixed in 16 oz of water every night.

Unless they are stuck out and causing significant pain or itching, surgery can usually be avoided.

You should consider seeing your doc. ...Read more

How can I get rid of a hemorrhoid?

Diet and exercise: Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, is one of the most effective lifestyle changes you can make for your hemorrhoids. A high-fiber diet, together with plenty of fluids, softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids or worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. Along with a healthy diet, exercise can help ease bowel movements. ...Read more

If I eat more vegetables can I prevent hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids: Unfortunately, pregnant women often get hemorrhoids not because of their diet, but because the increased blood supply to the fetus also increases the blood supply to their hemorrhoidal veins.

I have a really bad hemorrhoid. What's a quick way of getting rid of it?

No shortcuts: You must be examined to determine therapy. If severe, surgery is indicated. If moderate, the use of Rx crams (Anusol HC), Proctofoam will help. I always suggest sitz baths 4x/day for 15 minutes: 1-2 lbs of Epsom salts in 4-6 inches of very warm (not hot) water and soak your bottom as noted. In the end, you will need a rectal exam to check for internal and external hemorrhoids. ...Read more

How to get rid of hemorrhoid pain?

Pain: From hemorrhoids is usually due to an external hemorrhoid issue. If they are just swollen, bed rest for 24-48 hours and warm tub soaks work best. If it is thrombosed or clotted, seeing a colorectal surgeon to incise and drain will get the most prompt response. Be sure your pain is not due to an anal fissure as that is sometimes present and needs different treatment. ...Read more
