Bleeding is one of the most common symptoms of hemorrhoids. Bleeding usually occurs during and after you use the bathroom. You will most likely find spots of blood on the tissue paper. The blood can result from both internal and external hemorrhoids.
External hemorrhoids can cause both pain and bleeding. An external hemorrhoid can sometimes get a blood clot lodged within the hemorrhoid which causes thrombosed external hemorrhoid. Medical treatment should be sought 72 hours after development. The blood clot can be adequately removed within 72 hours which would vastly improve the hemorrhoid.
Internal hemorrhoids are located inside the anal area. They are generally painless since there are no nerve ending present in the inside of the rectum. Internal hemorrhoids can cause variable amounts of bleeding. Bleeding is typically pretty light and does not usually continue for more than 72 hours continuously. Medical advice should be sought if bleeding is heavy and continues for more than that time frame.
Internal hemorrhoids can sometimes protrude outside the anus. These types of hemorrhoids are called prolapsed hemorrhoids. Surgery is usually recommended for these.
Most of the time they can be cured with simple dietary changes and natural, homeopathic remedies. Hemorrhoid treatment can be attained in as little as one week from the comfort of your own home. These remedies are inexpensive since most of them can be found in your refrigerator or pantry.
The other benefit to seeking a natural remedy is that there are no awful side effects involved. Most of these remedies are simple and work very effectively.
