What to Do for Hemorrhoids

What to Do for Hemorrhoids

When wondering what to do for hemorrhoids, your first step is to compare treatments. By researching the different treatment options available, you can manage your hemorrhoid symptoms with a treatment that works best for you.

Depending on the severity of your hemorrhoid symptoms, hemorrhoid home remedies such as creams or sitz baths may provide just the right amount of relief. Many people with mild itching or pain in the anal area use home treatments to temporarily keep their minor symptoms at bay. From natural remedies like witch hazel and apple cider vinegar to over-the-counter creams and wipes, trying out different home treatments may work for you. Just remember that any treatment you can administer yourself at home will only provide temporary relief and in some cases, using it may make your symptoms worse. To remove hemorrhoids completely, ask your doctor about treatments like hemorrhoid banding.

Patients who wonder what to do for hemorrhoids should look into doctor-administered treatments like rubber band ligation. The CRH O’Regan System, for example, is a non-invasive, quick, and virtually painless procedure that can treat hemorrhoids both large and small. In fact, band ligation can permanently treat your hemorrhoids, leaving you symptom-free for years to come.

Other options for the treatment of hemorrhoids include infrared coagulation, hemorrhoidectomy, and sclerotherapy. These treatments range in terms of invasiveness and effectiveness – using either infrared light, surgery, or even chemicals. And although these solutions can remove hemorrhoids for good, the process can also be much more lengthy and intense as compared to the simplicity and ease of band ligation.

If you have hemorrhoids, now is the time to compare hemorrhoid treatments. Be sure to discuss all available treatments with your doctor to find the one that works best for you.
