Treatment in Stages
Sitting daily for long periods, a low-fibre diet, overweight and pregnancy are risk factors which can often result in constipation. When constipated it is necessary to push hard which increases the pressure on the haemorrhoids. If a backlog of blood then occurs, the haemorrhoidal cushions will swell and protrude. The most frequent symptom is anal bleeding during a bowel movement. Afterwards, »smudging« may also occur as the closing of the anal canal due to the protruding haemorrhoidal cushions is no longer guaranteed. This can cause mucus membrane irritation and itchiness.
If a customer asks for a remedy for haemorrhoids at the pharmacy, it will need to be clarified first whether the »haemorrhoids« had been diagnosed by a doctor. If the answer is no, self-medication should not be recommended.
