Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located around the anus and lower part of the rectum. External hemorrhoids occur under the skin near the anus while internal hemorrhoids develop in the lower rectum. It can be extremely uncomfortable to have internal hemorrhoids since they’ll often protrude through the anus. A bloody stool is a frequent symptom of internal hemorrhoids, which is usually quite painful, uncomfortable, and is accompanied by a lot of itching in the anal area.
As uncomfortable as hemorrhoids can be, they’re not considered life threating or even a serious medical condition. Estimates have it that over 60% of the population will experience hemorrhoids at some point in their lives and millions of sufferers are looking to ease their discomfort.
Here are 5 ways that have proved to get rid of hemorrhoids:
Sclerotherapy is a way of treating spider and varicose veins. It’s easy and almost pain free. A solution is injected into the vein which causes it to dry up and disappear. It’s generally used for treating small, internal, first or second degree hemorrhoids.
Witch Hazel is great at reducing hemorrhoidal itching. Witch Hazel is easy to apply and can be done using a cotton ball, cotton swabs, or even sprayed on. Some sprays have proanthocyanidins which some say can strengthen the walls of the vein. (Witch Hazel Astringent 8 Oz by Humphreys Homeopathic Remedies)
Hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical excision of the hemorrhoid used primarily in severe cases. It is associated with significant post-operative pain and usually requires 2~4 weeks for recovery. Although this is a way to cure hemorrhoids, it’s an extreme action for relief. Hemorrhoidectomies used to be a popular way to get rid of hemorrhoids; it’s quite invasive and required quite a bit of recovery.
