?Pin worms with hemorrhoids
Thanks for writing in to us.
You may be suffering from pin(thread)worm infection
and you can also have hemorrhoids. A detailed clinical examination will confirm and you might need few investigations like stool examination (routine and microscopic).
You can take anti parasitic medications like Mebendazole
and must follow strict hygiene measures for up to six weeks. Treatment along with good hygiene is the only way to prevent eggs from spreading and re-infection.
You should thoroughly wash your bathroom and kitchen.You should also wash your hands regularly,particularly after going to the toilet and before mealtimes.
Please avoid scratching the affected area to prevent re-infection and reduce the risk of the infection spreading to other people.
Hemorrhoids can be confirmed by clinical examination.You may need digital examination for confirmation. Mild to moderate stage are treated by increasing fiber intake,oral fluids for maintaining hydration, NSAIDs for pain relief. Surgery for hemorrhoids should be done for those who fail to improve with these measures. Constipation
should be avoided and avoid straining during defecation.
Hope your query is answered.
