What are hemorrhoids? Why are they so annoying in the first place and why would you want to get rid of them right away the moment you get them?

In a nutshell, hemorrhoids are veins in the rectum and the anal area that have swollen up. They can either be internal or external, and internal hemorrhoids are those that are found in the rectum area. Because there are no pain receptors in that area, internal hemorrhoids are almost always not painful, but then, they have the tendency to bleed if they are agitated. External hemorrhoids, on the other hand, can be really painful since they protrude and are located in an area where there are pain receptors, thus, making them irritating at the least.

There are several internal hemorrhoids treatment methods that you can go for in the event that you get afflicted to avoid them from developing into conditions that can prove to be much more severe. There are a couple of complications. One is the prolapsed hemorrhoid condition (when the hemorrhoid is pushed out of the anus) and the other is the strangulated hemorrhoid condition (when the prolapsed hemorrhoid is trapped outside the anus, cutting off the blood supply).

There really are no known medications meant to get rid of hemorrhoids – both internal and external. But then, there are methods that can aid in managing as well as reducing the symptoms that they bring. For one, you can go for the rubber band method. This is done using a rubber band to remove the hemorrhoid cells. Its aim is to kill the cells in the hemorrhoid, allowing it to fall off naturally. You can also go for hemorrhoidectomy, a surgical internal hemorrhoid treatment procedure that removes the culprit.

As we all know, prevention is better than cure. To be able to avoid the occurrence of hemorrhoids, it is good to prioritize your overall health. Make sure that you do your best to regulate your bowel movements through eating the right food and, if needed, taking in supplements that will help regulate it. Also, make sure that you exercise for proper blood circulation and to be able to strengthen your vein walls. This is because hemorrhoids are caused mainly by straining when defecating, and reducing the straining will definitely help you avoid having complications brought about by hemorrhoids. Proper hydration will also do you a world of good if you want to make sure that your bowel movement is regulated properly at all times.
