The treatment process for haemorrhoids is one that can often be undertaken at home using simple home remedies, or at a doctor’s office but using the same techniques. Common symptoms such as mild discomfort, swelling, and inflammation of haemorrhoids can often be treated with such home treatments. In a lot of cases, this will be the only form of treatment that is required, such methods include:
Quick Pain Relief: To help minimise any pain that may be felt, you should soak your anal region in warm water for at least 10-15 minutes every day. If you suffer from external haemorrhoids, you could try sitting on a warm hot water bottle which can prove effective depending on the severity of your condition.
Consuming More Fibre: You should try to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grain products as doing so can help soften the texture of your excrement, which will help you avoid any straining issues, which could aggravate the condition further. You can also use over-the-counter fibre supplements to achieve the same goal.
Avoid Using Dry Toilet Paper: Subsequent to using the toilet, you should refrain from the use of dry toilet paper as it can irritate your anal area. Ensure that you are only using wet toilet paper or wipes but it’s best to avoid those that have either alcohol or perfume on them.
Oral Pain Relievers: Common pain relievers such as acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen, will be to temporarily ease any soreness you may be experiencing.
However, for more severe cases of piles, you may require the use of more advanced topical treatments that will be able to ease the discomfort you feel. We personally one stock two forms of such treatments which have a high effectivity rate and we stand behind. This treatment is Anusol-HC; which comes available in the form of either an ointment or a suppository. It is a corticosteroid type medicine which specifically treats inflamed haemorrhoids.
