Having problem of hoemmorroids. Taking lot of fibres. Diagnosed with external piles. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
I am 31 Male here
I have problem of hoemorrhoids (piles) since few years
Ok. Please proceed with your query.
I am a non-smoker, and intake lots of fibre in food
I underwent check-up a while back - proctoscopy - and was diagnosed with having XXXXXXX and external piles
However, I still decided not to go for operation as the situtation is not very grave
Just that once in a while (say once in 6-8 month - Bleeding happens with pain
It's again happening since past 3-4 days
less bleeding , but lot of PAIN
can you advise some external ointment etc. for relief
You can use Shield Ointment for local application.
That would help in reducing the pain as well as help in healing.
ok, hope its easily available... can u also please suggest 1-2 more alternatives if this is not available at the pharmacy
Sitz bath is a process, where you take a wide bucket with warm water in it.
Then dilute betadine solution in it.
how much solution in how much water?
After that you can sit in the water for 5 minutes, so that the water is in contact with the anal region.
you can pour around 15- 20 ml in 5 litres of water.
and then later I can apply shield ointment,...
Shield ointment is easily available in the pharmacies.
All these measures would help to improve your present discomfort.
Just in case shield is nt available, any alternatives
Please give me a moment, let me just check what other brands are available.
Protocream or Anovate cream is also available.
Hope I had been able to help you.
Yes, I'll take required medication right away.... Thanks again
Is there any other queries I could help you with?
Just wanna check should I go for surgery? As itwas prescribed by another doctor?
Is surgery effective
Surgery is effective. It will reduce the problems you are facing.
Again you still have to continue with precautionary measures.
You have to have plenty of fluids, vegetables and fruits.
Ok... u mean fibre intake and no stressing while bowel cleaning
Also you should avoid lifting heavy materials.
In short, you should avoid anything that causes an increase in the abdominal pressure.
I would suggest to avoid weight training.
Thanks , that would be all... bye doc
