Symptoms of Haemorrhoids/Piles?

Haemorrhoids, commonly known as piles, are swollen veins that appear as annoying and sometimes painful lumps in or around the bottom. They can be small like a pea or as large as a grape and come in either pink or purple. They are a common problem, experienced by about half of the population at some point during their lives. They tend to get better on their own but may require some medical attention.

Symptoms of Haemorrhoids/Piles?

Symptoms to watch for include fresh blood after pooing, this will be bright red, an itchy anus, feeling like still needing to poo right after going, slimy mucus, and lumps and pain around the anus. Phone an ambulance if the bleeding is non-stop, the toilet water turns bright red, or there are blood clots and severe pain.

No one wants haemorrhoids. A few simple steps can help prevent them and ease the itchiness and pain when they do occur — fluids and fibre help to keep poo soft. Straining to poo is a risk factor of popping a haemorrhoid, as is chronic constipation or diarrhoea. Keeping healthy toilet habits and treating constipation and diarrhoea can prevent haemorrhoids. Obesity is a risk factor, so a healthy well-balanced diet and exercise won't just ease the pain when they occur, but can help prevent them in the first place. Do not ignore the urge to go. Leave plenty of time to use the toilet, but don't sit there and read a novel. Spending too much time sitting down can cause haemorrhoids, and this is especially true if that time is spent sitting on the toilet. Do not wipe too hard and use damp toilet roll. Pre-packaged wet toilet roll is available from supermarkets in the same aisle as regular toilet roll. Keep the bottom clean and dry. Cut down on alcohol and caffeine. Use plenty of water-based lubricant for anal sex.

Pregnancy is one of those things that can cause unavoidable haemorrhoids. This is because the weight of the baby puts pressure on the bottom. Giving birth is also a risk factor. Speak to your doctor or midwife for advice.

The risk of haemorrhoids increases with age as the veins in the bottom weaken and stretch.

Haemorrhoids bleed, so don't take ibuprofen to ease the pain. Codeine can cause constipation, which can lead to haemorrhoids, so don't take that either. Regular paracetamol will help the pain. Always follow the instructions on the printed on the label and store out of sight and reach from children. A warm bath will help ease both itching and pain, as can an ice pack wrapped in a towel. Be sure to store this ice packet separate for ones used for minor injuries or in lunchboxes.

Haemorrhoids can be eased gently back into the anus.

What are the dangers of Haemorrhoids/Piles?

 

Pharmacists can recommend over-the-counter creams to ease pain, itching and swelling and treatments for constipation and to soften poo.

How to treat Haemorrhoids/Piles?

Repeated haemorrhoids or haemorrhoids that do not improve after one week of self-care and over-the-counter treatment require medical attention. Book an appointment with the GP for stronger prescription creams and laxatives.

Sometimes haemorrhoids require hospital treatment when all else fails. It does not always prevent a reoccurrence. There are surgical and non-surgical treatments available. Non-surgical treatments include a rubber band being placed on the haemorrhoid, starving them, so they fall off. Do not try this at home. It needs to be done by a trained medical profession using medical-grade equipment. It is also painful, so the hospital uses a local anaesthetic to numb the pain. Other non-surgical treatments include injecting them with liquid so they shrink or using mild electric currents or infrared light for shrinkage. Non-surgical methods usually see the same-day hospital discharge. Surgery is the last resort for haemorrhoid treatment. This is done with a general anaesthetic to put the patient under and requires a hospital stay. Surgical treatment includes cutting the haemorrhoids out, stapling them inside the anus or using stitches to make them shrink.

Haemorrhoids range from irritating to painful and usually aren't anything to worry about unless there is a lot of blood, clots or severe pain along with them. If that is the case, do not hesitate and phone the ambulance. As they are so common, the pharmacists have heard all about them before but will provide a private room to discuss them and over-the-counter treatments to prevent embarrassment if they are particularly painful or annoying. They can be waited out at home with some basic hygiene practices to both ease the pain and itching and prevent a reoccurrence. Seek medical treatment if they keep coming back or don't go away after seven days.
