There are both clinical and home treatments available for screw piles or hemorrhoids. The clinical treatments will vary depending on the type of hemorrhoid, such as in internal hemorrhoids the treatment will be more invasive. Here are some of the treatments used clinically to treat internal hemorrhoids:

• Surgery is done when the hemorrhoid inside the anus is infected, swollen or inflamed. In such cases the hemorrhoid will cause extreme discomfort when passing stools. Infected hemorrhoid that indicates an abscess is the worst. A surgery is necessary in order to remove the hemorrhoid. Further treatment to prevent infection and improve the healing of the wound is done to the patient.

• Needle evacuation is done when the blood blister is located near the opening of the anus. This works for both internal and external hemorrhoid during the first few hours, when the blood still hasn’t clotted. Take note that for this treatment to work in internal hemorrhoids, the blister itself has to be accessible without the use of other devices.

• Fixative surgeries are done to milder cases of hemorrhoids. This procedure is also done prior to a surgery for a second-degree hemorrhoid.

Home treatments are the best for external hemorrhoids. Here are some things for you to try:

• Topical ointments and creams provide relief for discomfort, pain and itchiness. Skin irritation can also be taken care of using these treatments. To prevent complications, however, make sure that you check with your doctor before you purchase any topical ointments.

• Ayurvedic medicine is known to cure hemorrhoids. A lot of medical professional have hinted on its effectiveness in the past. It has been used for a long time in distant countries and is now a proven home treatment for hemorrhoids.

• Diet and lifestyle change. This can cause indirect relief to hemorrhoid, although not necessary an immediate relief. For long term prevention of hemorrhoids, patients are advised to take on a healthier lifestyle, which will prevent constipation.

A lot of people worry that they have piles disease. It’s a little known fact, however, that piles is not a disease in all the meaning of the word. Rather, it is a temporary condition that heals over time, much like a wound, cold, fever or blister.

As a matter of fact, that’s what it is: a blister. Piles or hemorrhoids are blood blisters caused by an incised blood vessel supplying blood to the anus. The popped vessel quickly fills the lower layer of the skin with blood, causing it to bulge and form a blister. After a few hours the blood will clot and it will become what doctors call a thombosed hemorrhoid. At this point, draining the blood out of the blister through the use of a needle is no longer doable. Fortunately, the pain usually goes away a time after the blood has clotted. The discomfort will be gone in a matter of days, as well.

Hemorrhoids are not cause for serious worry, although you shouldn’t fully neglect it either. It’s just that many people are under the impression that conditions like these are often associated with more serious diseases – two of which are STDs and colorectal cancer. Fortunately, hemorrhoid is neither cancer nor an STD.

For further diagnostics, you may consult your physician for further diagnostic. Not to cause any more unnecessary worry, but you should take note, too, that hemorrhoid can be accompanied by a more serious condition. It doesn’t mean that you have it. It only means that there is a possibility. For instance, people who have hemorrhoids often may be experiencing prolonged constipation. Constipation and straining during bowel movements are causing the hemorrhoids. Constipation, when left untreated, can lead to fecal impaction. Constipation alternating with diarrhea can be associated to another disease, but it will definitely cause frequent hemorrhoids and infection.

There is no better way to tell than asking a professional and giving in as much excellent description as possible. But since visiting a doctor isn’t exactly the cheapest thing to do nowadays, and hemorrhoids aren’t exactly the topic of your choice to discuss with other people, it sometimes becomes difficult to diagnose your condition. A lot of people, in fact, resort to the belief that what they have is something worse. Many people falsely diagnose themselves with colorectal cancer, among many other underlying diseases, when what they really have is a hemorrhoid.

Make no mistake, though! Hemorrhoids are not to be taken lightly! While they go away on their own, there is a risk that there will be bleeding when the blood blisters are ripped open. So awareness is the key. Here are some ways on how to diagnose yourself if you have such condition.

• Look at piles pictures over the Internet. Then get a mirror and look at your own. If you feel a lump near the opening of the anus, then chances are you will be able to see it and compare it to piles pictures over the Internet. This doesn’t work for internal hemorrhoids, though.

• Look out for the symptoms. The common symptoms for piles or hemorrhoids are pain, discomfort, itching and skin irritation. In some cases when the skin covering the blisters is broken, there will be bleeding followed by abscess, swelling and infection. External hemorrhoids can be felt because they bulge near the opening of the anus. However, doing a similar physical diagnostic for internal hemorrhoids is generally ill advised.

• Look out for the causes. One thing that will help you ascertain if what you have is a hemorrhoid or pile is if the causes indicate as much. Are you having difficulty moving bowel? People who strain too much when passing stools or those who have long-term constipation are susceptible to hemorrhoids.

In layman’s terms, a hemorrhoid is a blood blister that forms at the opening of the rectum, the anus. It is caused by too much straining while moving bowels, among many other things. Constipation is a known sinister cause for hemorrhoids. However, some people experience this problem even though they are not constipated. The presence of hemorrhoids can be caused by coughing, physical strain, sitting all day and many other reasons. Direct straining caused by intercourse is also a known cause, which is why many doctors advise against it.

Hemorrhoids form when the small vessels that supply blood to the anus are stretched too much that they rip. Internal bleeding quickly follows the damage and causes the blood to accumulate underneath the thin but flexible layer of skin in the anus. There are basically two types of hemorrhoids. An internal hemorrhoid is often more painful and can cause difficulties during bowel movement. In worse cases, internal hemorrhoids photos show blisters that are swollen, large and infected.

An external hemorrhoid is sometimes wrongly referred to as piles. This type of hemorrhoid feels like a small lump that is near the opening of the anus. An external hemorrhoid usually goes away after a couple of weeks on its own. However, pain and discomfort may be felt during the first few hours or first few days. Immediate treatments allow the blood to escape in order to prevent discomfort, although the blood clots pretty quickly so these treatments can only be done in the first few hours.

Fortunately, hemorrhoids are not serious. They can be painful and get infected when the blister itself is popped, but they usually go away on their own after several weeks. For prevention tips and more specific information about hemorrhoids, be sure to consult your physician about what’s causing your hemorrhoids.

There are many treatments available for internal hemorrhoids, most of them invasive and require the doctor to administer the treatment. Fortunately for people who are having problems with external hemorrhoids, they don’t have to worry about any of these things. External hemorrhoids can be treated using topical ointment and creams only. One topical remedy that is very popular and effective, not to mention recommended by most physicians, is the preparation H cream. Look for this in your nearest physician’s clinic or pharmacy if you are having problems with hemorrhoids.

External hemorrhoids or piles are blood blisters formed when a vessel under the skin of the anus breaks. The blood leaks and forms a clot under the skin shortly after the breakage. The breakage itself is nothing serious. The ripped part of the blood vessels is clotted by the blood that leaked out of it. The vessel repairs itself over time, whereas the blood in the blister liquefies after several weeks to be absorbed back by the vessels. That is, however, if the blister is left unbroken. If the blood blister is incised, the wound becomes susceptible to abscess, infection, swelling and inflammation. That’s why it is never advisable to bleed the hemorrhoid unless fully necessary.

A doctor will only advise a needle treatment to evacuate the blood in the blister if it is causing any difficulty in bowel movement, too much pain or discomfort to the patient. Otherwise, the doctor will advise the use of preparation H cream or other topical remedies in order to alleviate the symptoms.

Sanitation and proper hygiene are two of the most important and most effective treatment for external hemorrhoids. Soap and water can be used as alternative for toilet paper if it is causing skin irritation over the blister. Make sure that you consult your doctor for further treatment if the hemorrhoid indicates any abnormalities.

While it is true that a hemorrhoid is not a serious condition and it is not cause enough for you to panic, it’s also true that hemorrhoids can get worse when left neglected or infected. Normally, hemorrhoids will go away on their own if the blisters are not popped open. However, if there is an incision over the skin covering the blister during the early stages of the hemorrhoid, it can lead to bleeding. Fecal matter can get trapped in the wound and cause infection if it is not cleaned properly.

It’s advisable to use creams and ointments, among other topical remedies, in order to protect the blood blisters from ripping open. If an infection occurs, it’s strongly recommended that you go see your physician immediately.

Here are some symptoms that indicate severe hemorrhoids. If you have any of these symptoms, be sure to consult your doctor without hesitation. Otherwise, do not burst the blister and allow it to heal by itself, using only topical remedies to alleviate the pain and discomfort.

• Abscess – prior to infection, there may be an abscess or presence of pus mixed with fecal matter in the wound. This leads to infection.

• Swelling – hemorrhoids that are kept intact usually grow larger during bowel movement. However, if the swelling doesn’t subside after that, there may be something else causing it.

• Inflammation – if the swelling is reddish in color and it is accompanied by a skin rash, breakage or bleeding, then it’s definitely something you should be concerned about. Go see your doctor if you find any of these abnormalities.

• Infection – the most important indication to look out for is infection. Infection is caused by the bacteria in the fecal matter that gets trapped in the open wound. This can be due to unsanitary lifestyle or practices. Infection is often accompanied by lack of energy and fever. If so, consult your doctor.

When you look up screw piles on the Internet, you get a bunch of pages with pictures of large construction and digging equipment. It’s that or screw drivers for the toolshed. In a nutshell, there is very little information to go on over the Internet to diagnose the screw piles disease. This lack of information leads people to believe that screw piles disease is life-threatening and they should be immediately worried about it.

Fortunately, it’s not. Taking in the context of the word piles, which is a common term used for hemorrhoids, you will see that this is not cause for serious worry. It doesn’t mean that you should be too complacent or totally neglect your condition. It only means that through some changes in your bowel movement, you can easily get rid of hemorrhoids. It’s not cause enough for panic.

Hemorrhoids or piles are caused when a blood vessel in the anus rips open. Blood supplied to the anus allows it to widen up when passing stools. These blood vessels, however, can break when there is too much straining during bowel movement. The blood then escapes the vessels and settles into the lower layer of the skin. Since the skin of the anus is elastic, blood blisters easily form.

Hemorrhoids can cause discomfort to the patient, especially if they are located in the inner part of the anus. External hemorrhoids can be treated with topical ointments and creams. If anything, you can consult a physician and opt for a treatment to remove the blood. In the first few hours, the blood is taken through a needle. Take note that this is not possible in a thombosed or clotted hemorrhoid. The pain usually goes away on its own. You can easily prevent this by lessening the strain when you are moving bowels. Treating constipation, if any, is also recommended.

Too many people who suffer hemorrhoids falsely diagnose their condition as something far worse, something far serious. Oftentimes people even relate it to colon cancer. However, hemorrhoids are not as serious as they may first seem like. They usually go away on their own. Alternatively, there are treatments that can be done to provide comfort. The following are some symptoms of hemorrhoids that you can cross reference with in case you are worried you might have a serious colorectal disease.

• Bleeding – This is the most common symptom of hemorrhoids. However, people tend to fear for the worse whenever they see blood. It’s not lost to many that various diseases such as colon cancer are accompanied with rectal bleeding. The blood that comes out if you have a hemorrhoid doesn’t exactly come from the inside of the bowel. Rather, it comes from an exploded vessel underneath the elastic skin in the anus.

• Blister – If the hemorrhoid is left as it is, there won’t be any rectal bleeding. In turn the blood that comes out from the popped blood vessels leak to the lower layers of the skin, forming a blood blister. This is why you feel a lump near the opening of the anus when you have a hemorrhoid. Internal hemorrhoids occur inside the anus and cannot be felt, however.

• Pain – During a bowel movement, hemorrhoids can cause pain and discomfort. Remember that the hemorrhoids are caused by too much straining when moving bowels to begin with. Try not to put so much effort when passing stools in order to relieve pain. If anything, consult your doctor about taking laxatives to ease up your bowel movement.

• Skin irritation – Itching is sometimes present in cases of external hemorrhoids. It’s strongly advised to use topical skin remedies and prevent scratching the hemorrhoid so that the blister doesn’t rip open.

Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is a type of alternative medicine that has been practiced in India since the 500 BCE to 500CE. The Sanskrit word closely translates to longevity and knowledge, or longevity and science. Over the past centuries, Ayurveda practitioners have devised a wide variety of treatments and procedures for a number of ailments in the human body. Some of these treatments involve drinking concoctions, applying topical preparations and administering surgeries.

In the past, the Western medical practitioners were reluctant to try these practices. Today, however, there have been studies conducted that proved the effectiveness of Ayurvedic medicine in treating various conditions such as hemorrhoids or screw piles.

Two studies in the United States have concluded that there are about 20% or 1 of five Ayurvedic procedures and treatments that contains high levels of toxic metals, including mercury, arsenic and lead. Other studies point out that the treatments are nonetheless effective and that the procedures actually filter out these toxic metals. The dispute goes on until today. The fact of the matter is that Ayurvedic treatments are inexplicably very effective in treating various medical conditions that even modern medicine cannot cure.

Various sources on the Internet point out that Ayurveda is made up of eight components. It is a science that combines internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, ENT, psychiatry, prevention, toxicology, and aphrodisiacs. A lot of medical practitioners today believe that Ayurveda still requires years of study before it can be adapted as part of the modern alternative medicine done by licensed physicians. However, it remains true that as an alternative form of medicine, Ayurveda is far more effective compared to herbal treatments, among many others.

If you are thinking about resorting to Ayurvedic medicine to cure a specific condition, then you could be making the right decision. Just make sure to follow most doctors’ advice to research as much information as possible before attempting these treatments.
