ATLANTA, Dec. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Holidays are spectacular and they are already upon us. You get to stuff yourself full of turkey, lounge around and watch TV, plus you get presents. Celebrations could start at Thanksgiving, and not end until after New Year. Who would not love that? However, with great joy can come painful consequences. Our sedentary lifestyles during the holidays are terrific for relaxing, but terrible for our health. Hemorrhoids are not picky—they follow sedentary lifestyles and poor eating habits.
The symptoms of hemorrhoids are no fun. They cause discomfort, bright red bleeding during bowel movements, itching, swelling, and lumps. This can make sitting or walking uncomfortable. The majority of hemorrhoids can be treated at home, without doctor intervention. However, please see your doctor if you have persistent, painful, or lasting hemorrhoids that do not improve with home treatment.
Creams and Ointments
Witch Hazel, a soothing astringent made from plants, is a popular treatment. You can dab it or other over-the-counter creams and ointments on the affected area to gain relief. Other creams include Hydrocortisone which can relieve the itching specifically.
This is a particularly effective method to relieve hemorrhoids fast. Anuice is an effective cryotherapy treatment for both internal and external hemorrhoids. It is a cold therapy that is safely applied directly to the hemorrhoid area. It is extremely helpful and fast. It has no side effects and no possibilities of allergic reactions, as only the coldness of the applicator comes into contact with the tissues. The applicator is reusable so you can confidently use it again if those annoying hemorrhoids make another appearance.
A high-fiber diet is the best nutritional treatment for hemorrhoids. Take in more high-fiber foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. You may also take fiber supplements if you are unable to consume enough fiber in your daily diet. Eating less processed foods also helps, as does ensuring that you drink six to eight eight-ounce glasses of water each day.
Warm Sitz Baths
Another home remedy is sitting in a warm, but not hot, sitz bath. There should be about three inches of water. It is recommended to take the bath for 15 minutes several times a day, particularly after you have a bowel movement. Take care to not wash the anal area forcefully, as this can intensify the pain and itching.
For best results, you may want to combine some of these methods to raise the odds of being hemorrhoid free this festive season. As common as hemorrhoids are, they are unfortunately even more common during the holidays because we do tend to relax a bit more. They can bring your spirit down but don't let them. Say "hemorrhoid symptoms be gone!" Act decisively to ensure that hemorrhoids do not become an unwanted gift for you this festive season.
