Treating Hemorrhoids - Surefire Ways to Treat Hemorrhoids!

Early medical treatments for hemorrhoids try to reduce symptoms. Some simple steps you can take to reduce symptoms include:

- Take a hot bath a few times a day for 10 minutes

- Apply hemorrhoidal or suppository creams to affected areas

- Increase the fiber and fluid in your diet to prevent constipation

- Avoid alcohol use

- Use starch softeners or fiber supplements such as psyllium, methylcellulosa or polycarbophil calcium

A number of non-surgical procedures can be used to remove or reduce the size of the internal hemorrhoids. The procedure is painless and requires no anesthesia:

Rubber band ligation: A rubber band is placed in the rectum around the base of the hem. The band cut off circuits and piles dropped within a few days, eventually falling. This procedure is used to treat Grade I, II, and III hemorrhoids. Symptoms usually recur after a few years, but can be treated with more ligation.

Sclerotherapy: One of the oldest forms of treatment, during chemical sclerotherapy (phenol or urea) is injected around the bloodstream to reduce hemorrhoids. As a result, the area will be inflamed and at the same time scarring will occur. You may feel pain after this procedure, but it diminishes the next day. Symptoms of hemorrhoids may return after several years and may require further treatment.

Infrared Freeze: A special device used to burn hemorrhoid tissue.

If this procedure fails to produce the desired outcome, surgery is the next option. But surgery is only necessary if your hemorrhoids persist or are extremely painful:

Hemorrhoidectomy or hemorrhoid removal is necessary if the defect continues to develop and bleeding continues. Hemorrhoidectomy is performed under general anesthesia and has a good success rate. However, the next few days following the surgery will be painful.

Hemorrhoidal Artery Ligation (HALO) surgery is a new procedure for removing hemorrhoids without cutting and in some cases even without general anesthesia. During this procedure, the small artery that supplies blood to the hemorrhoids is tied up (connected), causing the hemorrhoids to shrink. Because it is usually painless, it is a popular treatment option.

Hemorrhoidectomy is a current surgical technique for Grade III hemorrhoids. Although the name implies that the hemorrhoids were removed, this did not happen. What happened was that a stapling device was used to cut the circular sections inside the anal canal straight above the piles. This brings the hemorrhoids back to their normal position in the anus and reduces the blood supply to them. As a result, it shrinks. Since cuts are performed on the hemorrhoids, it is a far more painful procedure than traditional hemorrhoidectomy surgery.

Before you agree to the operation make sure you have exhausted all other options. Pills, creams, ointments and suppositories provide temporary relief, but they do not cure. For surgery, keep it as a last resort, as it can lead to some health problems later on.
