Patient looking for hemorrhoid relief

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anus or rectum that often cause itching, pain, or bleeding. There are a number of treatment options available to help get rid of symptoms quickly. These hemorrhoid home remedies can help provide relief in minutes.

One option is to take warm baths in which you sit for 10 to 15 minutes three times daily. You can also apply cold compresses and use creams and ointments over-the-counter. If they are more severe, you may need to see a doctor for treatment. Your doctor may prescribe injections, banding, or surgery that can offer results quickly for hemorrhoid relief. Talk to your doctor about the best treatment for you.

What are some Common Symptoms?

Internal hemorrhoids occur inside the anal canal. They don’t usually cause any symptoms, but some people do notice a slight increase in the feeling of incomplete bowel movements and rectal bleeding when they go to the bathroom.

The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bright red blood on toilet paper or in the stool. Internal symptoms only become bothersome if they grow large or inflamed, which can stretch the tissue around your anus and lead to pain while sitting. However, even though internal hemorrhoids often don’t cause any discomfort, you might want them removed because they’re capable of leading to more severe health problems such as inflammation or prolapse (when a section protrudes from the anus, turning it “inside-out”)

Internal hemorrhoids are graded by the degree of swelling into four categories:

Grade 1- Hemorrhoids don’t prolapse at all or protrude when you’re straining on the toilet.

Grade 2 – Hemorrhoids protrude outside the anus without straining, but they go back inside independently.

Grade 3 – Hemorrhoids will protrude during regular bowel movements and cannot be pushed back in without outside assistance, such as using your fingers or water irrigation.

Grade 4 – Hemorrhoids cause continuous rectal bleeding and other important symptoms such as pain and fecal incontinence (unable to hold onto stools). If you have grade 4 hemorrhoids, you should seek professional assistance to prevent potential long-term health complications.

What is the Best Treatments Option?

There are a few different treatments that can offer quick results. If you have external hemorrhoids, your doctor may prescribe injections, banding, or surgery. If you have internal hemorrhoids, your doctor may prescribe injections, banding, surgery, or home remedies such as warm baths and cold compresses. They can be embarrassing and uncomfortable, and while none of these treatments are very effective, luckily, there is one option that will save you.
