How To Avoid Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids disrupt your daily life in the most uncomfortable way possible. While they sometimes can be treated at home, your doctor is always best equipped at dealing with them. But your best course of action is of course doing your best to avoid them. To learn more get in contact with your experts at the Digestive and Liver Center of Florida in Orlando, Kissimmee, and Oviedo, FL.


Prevention and Symptoms

Because a major cause of hemorrhoids is straining while going to the bathroom, a method of prevention is a change in diet. Foods high in fiber promote easier bowel movements.


It's also important to hydrate daily and avoid activities that require lifting heavy objects.


Hemorrhoids are veins in your lower rectum that become inflamed and cause the well-known symptoms.


External hemorrhoids are characterized by itching and pain, more so when you sit. They feel like lumps that are tender to the touch.


Internal hemorrhoids are not often painful unless they become prolapsed. That is when they protrude through the anal opening. Their major noticeable symptom is blood in your stool.


If the pain or bleeding is severe you should get in contact with your doctor. Also if at-home treatments do not prove effective.


Hemorrhoids Care in Orlando, Kissimmee, and Oviedo, FL

You can manage some of the symptoms of hemorrhoids at home with over the counter products until the infection subsides. But you should visit your doctor if they do not show improvement after a week or if your situation worsens.


Your doctor can treat your hemorrhoids directly through several procedures, and even surgery. But an equally important reason why you should reach out to your doctor is diagnosis. Sometimes more serious conditions are at fault for similar symptoms and only your doctor can help in making that determination. So if you need help avoiding them, or treating them, trust in your local specialists of the Digestive and Liver Center of Florida, in Orlando, Kissimmee, and Oviedo, FL. Get in contact by dialing (407) 384-7388.
