Mesotherapy For Hemmorrhoids Provides Safe Relief for Your Patients

If there is a single condiiton that can really benefit from mesotherapy It is hemmoroids. It is onew ay that your patient can find relief with no surgery,drugs, creams or suppositories. It can spare your patient or client from taking preparations with vasoconstrictors, antiseptics, anesthetics and other chemicals.

Hemorrhoids are inflamed and painful veins that swell up in the rectum or anus.

There are two types of hemorrhoids –internal and external hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids occur just inside the anus, at the beginning of the rectum. External hemorrhoids occur at the anal opening and may hang outside the anus.  Mesotherapy is used to treat external hemmorrhoids.

Symptoms

Symptoms of hemorrhoids include:

  • Anal itching
  • Anal pain, especially while sitting
  • Bright red blood on toilet tissue, stool, or in the toilet bowl
  • Straining during bowel movements and
  • One or more hard tender lumps near the anus

Causes 

This condition is very common in women, especially during pregnancy and after childbirth. They are the result of increased pressure in the veins of the anus.

The most common cause of hemorrhoids in both sexes is straining during bowel movements. Hemorrhoids may result from constipation, sitting for long periods of time, and anal infections. In some cases other diseases, such as liver cirrhosis, may cause them.

Care and Treatment

Over-the-counter stools softeners can help ease the passage of stools through the anus which may be painfully inflamed with hemorrhoids.

Corticosteroid creams that are topically applied to the hemorrhoids can also  reduce pain and swelling. However these creams can cause thinning of skin and hyper-sensitivity.

Hemorrhoid creams with lidocaine can reduce pain. One naturopathic suggestion is to pply Witch hazel to reduce itching in the area.

You can also make yourself more comfortable by wearing cotton undergarments and avoiding colored or perfumed toilet tissues. It is also a good idea to try not to scratch the area.

Sitting in a warm sitz bath can help soothe the irritated area. This simply means sitting in warm water for ten to fifteen minutes.

If your hemorrhoid symptoms do not improve in a week or so then you may have to visit your doctor to have them “shrunk.”  A Surgeon or gastroenterologist will shrink the hemorrhoid using a treatment called infrared coagulation,

Sometimes surgery needs to be performed to remove the hammered. This is called surgical hemorrhoidectomy. These procedures are generally used for patients with severe pain or bleeding who have not responded to other less invasive treatments.

Prognosis

Most treatments are effective, but to prevent the hemorrhoids from coming back, you will need to maintain a high-fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids and avoid straining during bowel movements.
