So what are hemorrhoids and how do you
get rid of them? I’m going to tell you all of this and more in this week’s
video now believe it or not hemorrhoids are actually an important structure that
sit in the anus and prevent leakage so in their normal state we all have them
hemorrhoids as a condition though are very common and it’s suspected that over
80% of people have suffered from them now the symptoms do vary from patient to
patient the most common symptom is fresh bright red blood past after a bowel
motion and itchiness around the anus caused by mucous from the hemorrhoid the
third symptom is where the hemorrhoid prolapses so it gets larger and can fall
out of the anus and it looks like a bunch of cherries now after a bowel
motion it may go in by itself or the patient may have to push it back in
background done now let’s move on to prevention and treatment now the
long-term results of getting rid of hemorrhoids is heavily dependent on
preventative factors so you will have to make lifestyle changes to prevent it
from coming back so hemorrhoids are mainly caused by a
lack of fiber and as we get older we need more of it if you’re not getting
the fiber in your diet your stools are going to be harder they’re not going to
retain more fluid so you’re gonna be pushing and straining more to get them
out now this pushing and straining may cause inflammation of the blood vessels
in and around the anus which is known as hemorrhoids so your next question is how
do you increase your fibre? Well it’s quite simple eat foods that are rich in
fibre so for example eat more vegetables eat whole grain rice whole wheat bread
whole wheat pasta even baked beans they’re massively high in fiber what I
will also do is I’ll leave a full list in the description below for you to
check out and read for more information now the other preventative factors that
you can modify include drinking more water so six to eight glasses a day
drinking less caffeine and alcohol when you’ve got the urge to go to the toilet
go to the toilet don’t wait just go lose weight and exercise more often now I’ll leave
more information on all of these plus more in the description below for you as
well now there are some factors that you can’t change for example genetics
pregnancy but making changes to the factors that you can will help reduce
the risk of you developing hemorrhoids in the first place and also it’ll help
reduce the risk of them coming back now let’s talk a little about treatment now
there’s various different creams ointments suppositories that are all
available from your pharmacy without a prescription and it can help to reduce
the swelling and helped reduce discomfort now generally
speaking there’s always two things I look out for in these preparations a
local anaesthetic which is going to help numb the area so you don’t feel as much
pain for example lidocaine and also a steroid which is going to help reduce
the swelling like hydrocortisone for example but always make sure you speak
to your pharmacist first before you purchase any of these so they can make
sure it’s suitable and safe for you to use they can also give you some really
helpful tips that you might not be aware of it’s also important to remember these
treatments should only be used for five to seven days and also when you use it
make sure you apply it after you’ve emptied your bowels that way you’ll stay
in the right area for longer and it’ll have a better effect
now treatment should be combined with the lifestyle changes we mentioned
earlier if you’re still in pain however speak to your pharmacist about taking
paracetamol in addition to these and also I would advise everyone not to take
non-steroidal anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen as this can actually make the
bleeding worse now constipation can make the pain worse and some medicines can
actually cause constipation which is going to make your pain worse so for
example codeine codeine causes constipation so I wouldn’t advise you
taking it the hemorrhoid pain if you still need something to help loosen the
stools laxatives are an option and I did make a video not long ago about
constipation and laxatives I’ll leave a link up here and in the description
below for you and as always with all medication always read the information
leaflet and speak to your pharmacist to make sure that you’re safe and suitable to take it
I really hope my tips help you in this video but please remember if your hemorrhoids don’t go away after five to seven days you’re in a lot of pain they keep
reoccurring or you’re pregnant then you will need to speak to your doctor I’ve
also left more useful information about hemorrhoids that I’d recommend everyone
to read in the description below see you next week mainly caused by a lack of fibre
and as we get older we need more fibre if you’re not having enough fibre I’ve
said fibre like five times now fibre fibre fibre (LAUGHTER) six to eight glasses a
day cutting down your caffeine and alcohol intake I can’t remember the rest
