Hello. Problems with the sphincter of Oddi are often but not always treated with surgery. The surgery can be done through a scope that is passed through your mouth. You would be sedated or else receive general anesthesia. However, in mild cases, where the pain is not too severe, medical treatment without surgery is often tried first. Medications are used to relax the sphincter.

First you have to identify a cause. Then whatever is causing it is treated. Spironolactone is a drug frequently used for hirsutism. There are others, including steroids and female hormones. These drugs can have significant side effects, so it is important to know the underlying cause before taking them. Other treatments would be cosmetic, including electrolysis, waxing, laser hair removal, etc.
