Use Of Anti-inflammatory Ointments To Treat Hemorrhoids?
, can hydrocortisone ointment be used for wounds on hemorrhoids?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids) occur when the veins around the anus or rectum are distally swollen. The trigger is usually due to high pressure that occurs in the rectum or anus, for example due to frequent constipation, chronic coughing, vomiting, obesity, pregnancy, lifting heavy weights, and so on.
Hemorrhoids can cause sufferers to have bloody bowel movements, feel pain, itch, block, until symptoms of obstruction appear, such as difficulty passing gas, difficulty defecating, nausea, vomiting, chills, and so on. Hemorrhoids can also make a lump in the anus, which can appear continuously or appear reddish in color resembling flesh.
Overcoming hemorrhoids should be done by surgery. Early action can be done through several procedures, including hemorrhoidectomy, hemorrhoid artery ligation, or stapled hemorrhoidopexy. The use of anti-inflammatory ointments (including hydrocortisone) can be useful for treating inflammation in the anus due to hemorrhoids, but does not necessarily cure the hemorrhoids. Therefore, its use is not recommended, unless it is prescribed directly by a doctor.
You should first check with your doctor about your complaints. In general, if the symptoms of hemorrhoids are still mild, your doctor will suggest that you drink more, consume fiber, maintain your weight, and avoid lifting heavy weights. To reduce discomfort around the anus, doctors can also give several types of drugs, including those that are inserted directly through the anus. If the steps above do not resolve your complaint, then surgery can be considered.
