Curing Hemorrhoids – Under the Needle or Over the Counter
While hemorrhoids may not be a chronic disease except in the rarest of cases,
the discomfort it causes a person may be especially intolerable to those
with low pain thresholds or one with a highly active sex life, as it presents
certain complications. Hence, they need the quickest and most effective treatment
for hemorrhoids. But they have to ask themselves one important question first:
Do they prefer to go under the needle or simply take over the counter prescription?
There’s a wide variety of treatments for hemorrhoids that are available in the health market. It ranges from surgical to medicinal to traditional and primitive. Thanks to the restrictive rules of society, those affected by this condition feel unable to talk about it with anyone else and ask for a second opinion about which treatment is best. This unfortunately makes it doubly hard for the affected individual to make the right choice.
Hopefully, however, this article can lighten the burden of the individual.
Surgical treatment of hemorrhoids – The number of surgeries done to get rid of hemorrhoids has waned over the years, signifying that both physicians and patients probably prefer to try curing hemorrhoids medicinally first before bringing out the big guns.
Below is a list of several non-operational and surgical treatments one may avail for hemorrhoids:
Cryosurgery – “freeze, hemorrhoids, freeze!” is probably a good tagline for this treatment because it’s exactly what it does.
Hemorrhoidectomy – as the name indicates, it means the removal of hemorrhoids. This treatment is operational and only applied in the severest of cases.
Infrared photocoagulation – don’t be fooled by the name and think that you can just beam a hemorrhoid away. Rather, it’s at least slightly connected; instead of beaming however, those troublesome hemorrhoidal tissues are burned into oblivion with the aid of a special device.
Rubber band ligation – And when there’s the word ligate, you always know something’s got to be cut off. In this case, it’s with the aid of a rubber band.
Sclerotherapy – An injection is used to shrink your hemorrhoids away.
For medicinal treatments, it’s best to consult your physician to see
which suits you most to avoid allergic reactions. Most prefer to use OTC
topical lotions, which you apply to the affected areas periodically. Included
in its makeup are pain relieving ingredients like lidocaine. There are
also herbal creams and tablets which some patients like better.
As a last note, whatever the hemorrhoid treatment that you end up choosing, we wish you well!
