What are haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids, also called piles, are quite common and considered not harmful.  Located just beneath the mucous membrane lining at the lowest part of the rectum and anus there are veins that looks like clusters of pillows. This condition develops when these pillow-like clusters of veins swell and protrude.  

What are the two types of haemorrhoids?

Internal haemorrhoids are inside the lining of the rectum. You cannot feel them and they are usually painless. You will only discover you have them when you see blood when you move your bowel.  Internal haemorrhoids can protrude through the anus.

External haemorrhoids are underneath the skin that is surrounding the anus. You immediately know you have them because you can feel swelling and they are itchy, painful or sometimes cause bleeding with bowel movements.

What causes haemorrhoids?

  • Possible causes of haemorrhoids are:
  • Aging
  • Being overweight
  • Pregnancy or childbirth
  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation
  • Strain from lifting heavy weights
  • Sitting on the toilet for a long time
  • Sitting or standin for a long period of time
  • Anal intercourse
  • Genetics

What are the common symptoms?

  • Bleeding, usually painless. The patient may notice red on the toilet paper or in the toilet bowl
  • Itching or irritation in the anal area
  • Discomfort and pain in the anal region
  • Lumps protruding from the anal region
  • Swelling in the anal region
  • A lump near your anus, which can sometimes be sensitive or painful
  • Faeces may leak without your control

Treating haemorrhoids

The key to a successful treatment is to immediately take action.  Haemorrhoids usually heals on their own when you handle the symptoms properly.  If you want to get an accurate diagnosis, it is best to see a doctor and after getting confirmation, your doctor will prescribe over the counter topical cream to relieve pain and itching.

Prevention and Home Remedy Tips suggests the following home remedy options:
  • Apply a cold compress to the area for relief
  • Try a warm salt bath
  • Use unfragranced wet wipes instead of toilet paper to clean the anal area
  • Avoid soap as this may further aggravate the problem
  • Avoid scratching the area
  • Wear cotton underwear to minimise discomfort
  • Treat any constipation or diarrhoea
  • Eat a high-fibre diet and drink plenty of fluids
  • If your diet is not already high in fibre, introduce it gradually
  • Exercise regularly
  • Keep stools soft so as to avoid straining when having a bowel motion
  • Always go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to go. 'Holding-on' can make haemorrhoids worse.
