I have hemorrhoids whatever product I use burns?

I have hemorrhoids whatever product I use burns?

Protect skin!: Hemorrhoids, particularly ones that protrude and 'leak' onto the skin often cause local raw skin which is likely responsible for the 'burn' you feel. Gentle wiping (try baby wipes or balneol) and protective creams containg zinc oxide (diaper rash creams) will help temporarily, but see someone about the hemorrhoids if you want to get rid of this nuisance. ...Read more

What is the burning inside butt crack, with hemorrhoid?

What is the burning inside butt crack, with hemorrhoid?

Fissure or fungus: Fissures and fungus infections are quite common. Perhaps a medication most likely to treat either one would be Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream (a combination of a steroid with an antifungal medication). Apply the cream sparingly twice daily; the lesion should clear within one week or less. If the problem persists, show it to a physician. ...Read more

What does hemorrhoid banding do? i have problem with mine burning and blood in rectum on off since 2009 doc wants banding is it placed inside?

Yes : Banding is done with a special device that cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid tissue causing them to shrink. They are used for internal hemorrhoids and can cause some cramping but are generally painless. They are done as an outpatient procedure and are generally effective. ...Read more

Noticed a small little fluid like bump around my anal area.. Doesnt hurt burn or anything what could this be? Anything close to hemorrhoids how 2 treat?

Noticed a small little fluid like bump around my anal area.. Doesnt hurt burn or anything what could this be? Anything close to hemorrhoids how 2 treat?

? tiny hemorrhoi: This is an example where 1 look is worth 500 words. What you describing could be a small hemorrhoid, & if so it could go away on it's own. Or heaven forbid, it could get larger. Avoid straining when you defecate. Often soaking the anus in warm epsom salt baths will help it go away. But the best bet is to have a dr, look at it & give you a firm diagnosis. Then they can also tell you best treatment. ...Read more

Got a hemorrhoid in area between my balls and anus. How can this affect anal sex for me? It always burns/hurts when I do anal even with lots of lube!

May or May Not: The area in question is called the perineum, and a bump in this area can result from several conditions. Some are infectious, either viral or bacterial (molluscum contagiosum, condyloma or abcess) versus hemorrhoids or skin tags related to prior tears and in rare cases cancer. Any sexual activity raises risk for sexually transmitted infections, so i suggest an in-person appointment for evaluation. ...Read more

Is surgery best for posterior tibial tenosynovitis and tibial neuritis? Also I think I have prolapsed hemorrhoid and it burns..... Help

Is surgery best for posterior tibial tenosynovitis  and tibial neuritis? Also I think I have prolapsed hemorrhoid and it burns..... Help

Orthotics: I wouldn't have surgery initially. Posterior tib tendonitis and tarsal tunnel syndrome is a result of flat feet. At your age, it is likely a flexible flat foot that can be corrected with shoe inserts or custom orthotics. Go to the store and try Dr. Scholl's orthotics before going to surgery. ...Read more

I have external dark purple hemorrhoid home treatment no good, and now its a really foul smell down there and vagina burns what do first?

Could be thrombosed: This could be a thrombosed hemorrhoid if it is very dark colored. The other possibility is that you have an abscess, particularly if there is a foul smell.
See a doctor to have this looked at. You may need to have a procedure performed for this.
In the meantime, try sitz baths (soak in warm water) and ice packs. ...Read more

Can internal hemorrhoids cause burning when I hold my pee and after I pee? I have passed five urine tests and had a scope and ultrasound.

Can internal hemorrhoids cause burning when I hold my pee and after I pee? I have passed five urine tests and had a scope and ultrasound.

Unlikely: Internal hemorrhoids are an unlikely cause of your urinary symptoms. Try increasing your water intake to dilute out if it is something in the urine that is causing burning sensation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Past two days when i make a bowel movement it burns real bad. I do have a internal hemorrhoid. Is that why? Why would it burn though?

Past two days when i make a bowel movement it burns real bad. I do have a internal hemorrhoid. Is that why? Why would it burn though?

Unlikely : This is unlikely to be due to hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids a rarely hurts. External hemorrhoids may hurts but you will feel them. The burning is likely due to small tears in the anal canal. This can happen for patients that are usually constipated or have large bowel movements. Simple treatments are still softeners that are available over-the-counter, increase fiber intake, and sits baths. ...Read more

Maybe or not...: This may just be hemorrhoids from straining but bleeding from rectum (brbpr) may also indicate anal fissures, proctitis (due to infection, inflammatory bowel disease, radiation therapy, stercoral ulcers, rectal prolapse, trauma, etc.) or a bleeding source further upstream. Depending on your age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaids, anticoagulants can cause bleeding), see your doctor. ...Read more
