Hemorrhoids | Piles | How To Get Rid Of Hemorrhoids | Hemorrhoids Treatment

Hemorrhoids or Piles. This video is on treatment, cream, symptoms, causes and how to get rid of hemorrhoids or piles.

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swellings containing enlarged blood vessels found inside or around the bottom (the rectum and anus). In this video were looking at treatment and prevention I hope my tips help.

Hemorrhoids, or piles, are abnormal swellings of the vascular mucosal anal cushions around the anus. In many cases, hemorrhoids don’t cause symptoms and some people don’t even realise they have them.

But when symptoms do occur, they may include:

• Bleeding after passing a stool – the blood is usually bright red
itchy bottom
• A lump hanging down outside of the anus, which may need to be pushed back in after passing a stool
• A mucus discharge after passing a stool
• Soreness, redness and swelling around your anus

Hemorrhoids aren’t usually painful, unless their blood supply slows down or is interrupted.

The exact cause of hemorrhoids is unclear, but they’re associated with increased pressure in the blood vessels in and around your anus.

This pressure can cause the blood vessels in your back passage to become swollen and inflamed.

Many cases are thought to be caused by too much straining on the toilet as a result of prolonged constipation. This is often caused by a lack of fibre in a person’s diet.

Chronic (long-term) diarrhoea can also make you more vulnerable to getting hemorrhoids.

Other factors that might increase your risk of developing hemorrhoids include:

• Being overweight or obese
• Age – as you get older, your body’s supporting tissues get weaker, increasing your risk of hemorrhoids
• Being pregnant – this can place increased pressure on your pelvic blood vessels, causing them to enlarge
• Family history of hemorrhoids
• Regularly lifting heavy objects
• A persistent cough or repeated vomiting
• Sitting down long periods of time

Hemorrhoid symptoms often settle down after a few days without needing treatment. Hemorrhoids that occur during pregnancy often get better after giving birth.

Making lifestyle changes to reduce the strain on the blood vessels in and around your anus is often recommended.

These can include:
• Gradually increasing the amount of fibre in your diet – good sources of fibre include fruit, vegetables, wholegrain rice, wholewheat pasta and bread, pulses and beans, seeds, nuts and oats
• Drinking plenty of fluid – particularly water, but avoiding or cutting down on caffeine and alcohol
• Not delaying going to the toilet – ignoring the urge to empty your bowels can make your stools harder and drier, which can lead to straining when you do go to the toilet
• Avoiding medication that causes constipation – such as painkillers that contain codeine
losing weight if you’re overweight. Link to my constipation video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9ofHdvvdvM
• Exercising regularly – this can help prevent constipation and help you lose weight

These measures can also reduce the risk of hemorrhoids returning or even developing in the first place.

Hemorrhoid creams, ointments and suppositories are available from pharmacies without a prescription. Generally speaking you want it to contain a local anaesthetic for example lidocaine to help numb the pain in the area in combination with a steroid for example hydrocortisone to help reduce swelling. It’s best to speak to your pharmacist about this so they can make sure it’s safe and suitable for you to use.

These treatments should only be used for 5-7 days and are best used after a bowel motion so it stays in the right area for longer.

    It’s not necessarily true about the fiber. I got a thrombosed hemorrhoid after diarrhea.

  18. Yell Sayson on July 12, 2021 at 8:48 pm

  23. Brian Jennings on July 12, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Fiber makes it worse.

  24. Kevin Watson on July 12, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Yea everything he said is Gucci but all last week my butt was bleeding badly. The discomfort gets unbearable at times and I can literally feel my butt hole bleeding at times. Ugh

  25. inDvortex on July 12, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Ahhh sorry but having dealt with external and internal hemorrhoids from birth (43 now) this erroneous info in lack of fiber makes me roll my eyes!
    I have no constipation, eat tons of fruits and veggies daily, drink lots of water, even became a vegan, removed gluten from diet, exercise daily, definitely not overweight at 112lbs, 5’4” have been to tons of doctors who said same robotic info you shared here and also telling me surgery might not solve it. Have used many natural remedies, gone through much detox and colonics. Nothing helped so far.
    No one knows true cause and how to CURE hemorrhoids.

  26. RapidzBreeze871 on July 12, 2021 at 8:53 pm

  33. Angel Nava on July 12, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    What about someone who usually has easy bowls…I stay hydrated and eat good but have a constant reoccurring flare up every month forever it seems now…I got it once when I used to strain alot then I stopped that and now it’s always coming back even if it feels like my bowl movements are pretty easy..

  34. Greer Connor on July 12, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Love the room to room dramatics. So good.

  35. Joy elvis Meda on July 12, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    I did this and it work for me.
    What you do is
    Just boil water put the hot water in a deep bowl that you can seat on.
    make sure when you seat on it the hot water won’t touch your skin

    Seat on the bowl and allow the heat coming out from the water to heat you so well like about 20 minutes

    After that rub proctoheal ointment

    You will heal before a week

    You can thank me later

  36. Eloy Espinoza on July 12, 2021 at 9:10 pm
