Bleeding hemorrhoids is a problem many people are not familiar with, so we will focus on this issue and shed some light on it. This is not a condition that will endanger your life but it needs to be treated nonetheless, since it can lead to some serious complications. Other diseases can cause the hemorrhoids and blood in the stool, so it is best to see a doctor if one of these problems appear. Treatment involving usage of jellies, gels and ointments are not advised, since the source of the problem is usually located in the anus's inner area and this kind of treatment will not prove successful, but it can give success for treating external hemorrhoids. There are some more serious conditions, like bleeding or anemia, which can be developed due to bleeding caused by hemorrhoids, but they are very rare. Also, these serious problems may be caused by colon or rectal cancer as well.
In some cases, bleeding hemorrhoids need surgery, but this can be avoided with the help from Hydrocortisone creams that can reduce discomfort, swelling and itching caused by external hemorrhoids. This over-the-counter medication cream can be used for internal hemorrhoids, but the results will probably appear after several weeks. As we have said, surgery can eliminate the problem of bleeding hemorrhoids and rubber band ligation is one of such surgeries. The blood supply of the hemorrhoids is cut off with the small rubber band, which is wrapped around the bleeding hemorrhoids. The hemorrhoids can also be removed from the anal tissue, but this is a different surgery that demands sutures which will cause the bleeding to stop. Bleeding hemorrhoids can be treated with a laser surgery that cauterizes the blood vessels located in the hemorrhoid. Infection risks are lower and the pain is lesser if you decide to do this kind of surgery.
There are some natural products that can be used for the treatment and they have far less risks involved. Mullein is the first remedy we will mention and it has soothing and astringent effect. Flowers and leaves give this extract these properties, which can also sooth inflamed and irritated skin, and it is very safe to use. Cayenne pepper has capsaicin, which can relieve itching and pain due to the effect on the sensory nerves. Problem we are talking about in this text can also be treated with this remedy quite successfully and efficiently. Bioflavonoids in the bilberry can improve the circulation of blood and by this, affect the hemorrhoids and treat them. Aesecin has anti-edema and anti-inflammatory abilities and it can be found in horse chestnut. It can make the vein wall stronger, reduce pain and swelling, but it can also be toxic. See a doctor before you start to use this extract. Butcher’s broom is a natural extract with properties similar to steroids called neuroscogenins and ruscogenins.
