What are External Hemorrhoids and Their Treatment

What are External Hemorrhoids?

You notice a problem after a difficult bowel movement or a bout of constipation. A hard “knot” on the outer rim of your anal canal is itching and causing discomfort. There may also be a streak of blood or mucus on the toilet paper after you wipe. What’s going on?

The swelling could be an external hemorrhoid caused by pressure on the on the veins in the rectal region. The pesky protrusion is a mass of swollen veins that “popped” out from straining on the toilet, carrying too much extra body weight, overexertion when lifting heavy objects or increased pressure on blood vessels from pregnancy and labor.

Are Hemorrhoids Dangerous?

A typical external hemorrhoid is more irritating than dangerous and a lot of the discomfort can be alleviated by over-the-counter treatments; however, rectal bleeding can also be a sign of cancer and some hemorrhoids, including internal ones, require the intervention of a doctor. If the problem persists and the bleeding doesn’t stop, book an appointment with your doctor.

Thankfully, the majority of external hemorrhoid can be safety treated in the comfort and privacy of your home. Prevention methods such as drinking plenty of water, increasing your active minutes and eating foods rich in fiber can help. If prevention doesn’t work, move to the next step: treatment.

How to Treat External Hemorrhoids

There are many ways to treat external hemorrhoids including sitz baths and ice. The problem with these hemorrhoid treatments is that they are messy, provide temporary relief and can be very inconvenient. Packing ice to work and slipping into the restroom with it is as impossible as it is embarrassing and applying some treatments can leave your most sensitive areas feeling greasy.
