There are two kinds of hemroids: internal and external. Internal hemroids can only be examined by a doctor and it happens due to the swelling of the veins located in the rectum area. In most of the cases, these are not painful due to the lack of the pain receptors in the rectum area. However, it may cause bleeding during or after the bowel movements, itching or a burning sensation in the anus and also the rectal pain before, during or after bowel movements.
There are various treatments available for internal hemroids which should be taken to avoid it from developing into the severe conditions. There are two possible conditions that can happen if the treatment is avoided. These two conditions are the prolapsed hemorrhoid and the strangulated hemorrhoid. Prolapsed hemorrhoid happens when the internal hemorrhoid is pushed out of the anus and strangulated hemorrhoid happens when the prolapsed hemorrhoids are trapped outside the anus that can cut off the blood supply.
There are no known medications that cure hemorrhoids but there are however internal hemroids treatment that can help in managing and reducing the hemorrhoid symptoms. These treatments are designed to reduce the aggravation of the hemorrhoids and prevent it from getting worse thereby allowing the hemorrhoids to heal faster.
There are other natural treatments that includes taking in supplements that helps in regulating the bowel movement, blood circulation and to be able to strengthen the vein walls. Hemroids are caused by the increased strain that comes when defecating. Being able to defecate regularly without the excess strain is also one of the ways to avoid the pressure inflicted on the hemroids.
For some of the severe cases of hemorrhoids, the recommended treatment requires surgery. There is the rubber band ligation where an elastic band is used to cut off the blood flow through the affected area. Then there is the galvanic electrotherapy where the hemorrhoid is desiccated and dried up by using electric currents. Sclerotherapy is a hardening agent that is injected into the hemorrhoid that makes the veins stronger which causes the hemorrhoid to shrink. Infrared coagulation is an infrared beam that is used to cauterize the hemorrhoid. Hemorrhoidectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the hemorrhoids. Enema is done by cleaning the rectum with water and flushing it out.
All these medical procedures need to be consulted with a doctor first in order to avoid any further complications.
