Why Do Hemorrhoids Burn
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
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
Sitz baths: You have hemorrhoids and burn after peeing. Try frequent sitz bath. If you can keep the area clean and dry then the healing can begin. Try it for three days if no better then try a barrier cream like zinc oxide for babies with diaper rash. It should only take a few days. If it worsens see your doctor. ...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?
? 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

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

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.
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?

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
