First off, let’s make sure we know exactly what thrombosed hemorrhoids are. Thrombosis occurs inside a blood vessel, when a blood clot forms which obstructs the flow of blood. Think of it like a pipe with a clog, and if that clog isn’t fixed, the blood doesn’t flow and this can lead to health problems, not to mention much pain and suffering. So what can be done about thrombosed hemorrhoids? In other words, what types of thrombosed hemorrhoid treatments are out there?
Thrombosed hemorrhoids might feel like a raisin if they are external and you will actually be able to see the swollen veins. The clot can also harden and feel more like an over dried raisin. The good news is that thrombosed hemorrhoids can be treated in much the same way as normal hemorrhoids, although thrombosed hemorrhoids have been known to be more painful and obvious due to the effects of clotting blood vessels.
Some common home-remedies includes a warm sitz bath, a diet change, topical creams and ointments and even all-natural supplements. It is important to note the topical remedies may help with immediate relief but do little to treat the hemorrhoids so they never come back (which is the purpose of any good treatment).
The fifth most common treatment of hemorrhoids (drum-roll please) is a diet with a lot of fiber. This of course goes hand-in-hand with a diet change, but it is amazing how many cases of hemorrhoids can be solved with a simple increase in fiber.
However, sometimes, and especially with thrombosed hemorrhoids, a treatment of all natural supplements specifically designed to get rid of hemorrhoids, as well as an all natural topical ointment to relieve the pain and begin the healing process may be the best choice. Hemorrhoid treatments like Venapro, Zenmed and Neo-Healar may be just the ticket, specifically Venapro or Zenmed which provide an oral supplement and topical treatment.
Some ingredients that are found in the Venapro supplement for example include Oat Straw and Horse Chestnut. These supplements help reduce swelling and inflammation.
The best place to start is always with home remedies, unless the pain is unbearable and the hemorrhoids are visible, which of course means you should seek the advice of a medical professional. If the home remedies don’t work (more fiber, change in diet or the sitz bath) then a 2-in-1 treatment like Venapro or Zenmed or even Neo-Healar might be the way to go.
However if you still need further treatments, the thrombosed hemorrhoid may need to be drained or removed (hemorrhoidectomy). This is usually a last option resulting from intolerable pain that cannot be curbed with any other treatments.
Thrombosed hemorrhoid treatment is very possible and as long as you take the necessary steps to get rid of your hemorrhoids, it should be a painless process. And the best part is that in most cases you can say goodbye to hemorrhoids forever with a few diet changes or supplements.
