Suggest remedies for lump in the anal area
Take lots of fibre, fluid, do regular exercise, apply Preparation H oint
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am Dr.Amit Jain (DM, Gastroenterologist).
I can understand your concerns
Lump that you have observed is most likely the hemorrhoid and pain is due to presence of anal fissure. These are all manifestation of anal fissure.
For this I will suggest you the following which I found very useful in my patients are:
1.Increase dietary intake of fiber. The richest sources include fruits and vegetables, whole wheat bread, XXXXXXX cereal, peas,oats and beans.
2.Increase your fluid intake or at least six to eight glasses per day.
3.Exercise for at least 30 minutes per day. A good walk is enough to keep your bowels going.
4.You may also use anti-pain medications of class NSAID like tablet Advil thrice a day.
5.Never delay bowel movement.
6.You can also take laxatives to aid in defecation.
7. Application of Preparation H ointment
8. Take Sitz bath at least thrice/ day
Both preparation H and Sitz bath will help in relieving pain and healing of fissure
I hope I have answered your query. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Wish you a good health
Please see reply before this regarding low carb diet. Today no pain until three o'clock pm when I had to pass stool. Seemed to be constipated. It hurt for 45 minutes afterwards then pain sent away. This time there was a lot of white mucous on the stool that came out. Still feels as if there is stool up in me that is just there but not moving down. I'm concerned about the mucous more than anything.
Low fibre diet rather than low carb diet leads to constipation
Welcome back and sorry for delay
I dont think low carbohydrate diet has to do with constipation, what is more important is high fibre diet which you could get from fruits and vegetables, whole wheat bread, XXXXXXX cereal, peas, oats and beans. Also lots of fluids. If you still feel constipated then you may use some laxative. Among all the laxatives I prefer polyethyleneglycol for my patients.
It may also be a simple feeling that stool is remaining which maybe due to presence of fissure and maybe some inflammation in rectum and anal canal. For this take prepration H and sitz bath, both of these will help in resolving this issue.
Mucus is normally produced in our large intestine and it helps in providing lubrication to stool so that it may pass easily. However when there is some inflammation it may be increased. So as soon as inflammation will settle, it will also resolve.
I hope this will help you. wish you a good health
yes you should apply these suppository
Yes I am suggesting you to use prepararion H suppository while going ro bed
Wish you a good health
1. I have a feeling sometimes that it feels as if something is crawling around in my anus. I did not have this before this issue. I can't tell if it is from the stool inside of me liquefying or what..but it feels weird. Ideas?
2. I also still have a little bit of mucous on my stool. Not on all of it. Mainly the beginning of the stool that I first push out....but not the rest of it. Will this mucous on my stool eventually go away even though I am not having any more pain?
See question above this one. Ok. All pain is gone now. Haven't has any pain after bowel movements in about four days. Been taking murilax to soften stool. The only two things that are left over is the mucous is still on stool, and when. I do go to the bathroom, I think a hemmorhoid is swelling, and this lump comes out of my anus, and then it slowly returns back into my anus. It causes me to still feel open until it returns. Saw it in mirror. I'm beginning to think that possibly this could have been a hemmorhoid problem instead of fissure??? Or maybe I had both going on. I don't understand why I have mucous if I have no pain, and I don't understand the sometimes crawling sensation in anus.
Take tablet albendazole
Welcome back and sorry for delay. I was abroad for some conference
First thing to confirm what is going on, get a proctoscopy examination if feasible. Because after this there will be no ifs and buts
Mucus is produced in every human being and it may be more in case there is any inflammation, or infection and otherwise also
As there is pain , there can also be fissure along with hemorrhoids
Feeling of something crawling around the anus may be due to some worms, or evacuation of mucus or gas. So I will also suggest you to take tablet albendazole 400mg 1 tab stat, to de-worm. Also get stool examination to confirm.
Treatment as a whole will remain the same as I have explained earlier
wish you a good health
