What is the treatment for hemorrhoids with sores ?

Hi. It seems I had a stool Sunday evening. I thought my skin tore a little or the movement may have scrapped my skin leaving it irritated. But after a day discomort, I examined the area noticing a small swollen area on the side of my rectum with two very small sores. Very painful. I used preparation h day one and two. It seemed to help the swelling but not the pain from the sores. I tried zoviarax cream. Not complete relief yet. Have you ever heard of such?

Thanks for posting query.
Increasing dietary fibres, oral fluids to maintain hydration, on-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), sitz bath, and you may need a course of antibiotics.
Consult your physician for further management.

Hi,
You are seems to have Fissure in ano,Hemorrhoids are usually painless unless it is infected.
fissure in ano is very painful.
Avoid constipation,take mild laxative daily.if there is no constipation pain will be less.
in hemorrhoids bleeding more and comes after passing stool and in fissure bleeding is before passing stool.
take one antibiotic course and some analgesic.
ok and bye.

I am in need of very good advice please. I don t have a GP and need to do something about what I am almost positive is Haemorrhoids. I have used a product called Annosol and a cheaper version of the brand that I notice has high antiseptic properties. I have been using this for approximately 8 weeks and all it seems to do is ensure that there is no soreness and takes the traces of blood away. I also use my own antiseptic to ensure that I clean this sometimes in addition to the heavily applied cream. The internal small lumps are not getting smaller though and I believe that if they are not removed completely, they will get big and horrible and this may turn into a worse problem. I would like an alternative for my medication/pharmaceutical, even if i have to pay for some anti-biotics or something. I know this is exceptional though I am unable to comfortably/if at all access a GP about this. Please assist.

Hello, I m experiencing what can only be described as bleeding haemorrhoids. It started about 3 years ago after the birth of my second child. It s been happening more often now, almost every month for a stretch of two weeks, usually close to the start of my period. I ve also been experiencing, dizziness, sore throat and a metallic taste in my mouth. Sometimes I even feel like my heart has skipped a beat. I try and stay fit, going to the gym 3-4 times a week and getting my heart pumping for at least 30 minutes -45 min. I also drink a lot of water and try and eat healthily. My doctors have flubbed me off for the past year as I have gone in about 3 times already but they seem to think that the bleeding, which is bright red and quite upsetting, to be quite normal and something I just have to live with. What if it s something more serious though? I m afraid to go to the doctor in case they flub me off again. ALmost every time I leave feeling like they just didn t give a damn and I m just being a hypochondriac, yet my symptoms persist. What if it s cancer?

shortly after straining for a bowel movement I notice some soreness in my right butt cheek near my anus. I have hemorroids but I don t believe that it is one. The area is tender to the touch and there is a lump under the skin, that hurts when I sit or got to stand up. Doesn t hurt too much when I have a bowel movement. I noticed today that it is somewhat swollen. What is this.

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
