Discovering The Best Hemorrhoids Treatment Options

Published on February 12th, 2016

What Are Hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are a group of swollen veins that develop in the anal region. They can be located on the inside or outside of the anus. Anyone can develop hemorrhoids. However, it is rare for children to develop hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids is an embarrassing ailment, but you do not have to cope with alone. There are a number of treatment options that are available for hemorrhoids. A professional can help you find the treatment option that best fits your needs.

Hemorrhoids Treatment Options

Many people’s hemorrhoids never go away completely. However, there are ways that you can reduce the pain and symptoms this condition causes. If over-the-counter medications are not giving you relief, then a compounding pharmacist can help you. A compound pharmacist will develop a personalized treatment for you based on your medical issues, preferences and symptoms.

One of the reasons that over-the-counter treatments often fail is because most of them only have one active ingredient. However, a treatment customized by a compounding pharmacist may contain several active ingredients. Some ingredients are designed to alleviate the symptoms, such as itching and burning. Others are designed to shrink the hemorrhoids.

A compound pharmacist can also adjust the dosage as needed. A Rectal Rocket is just one of the many treatment options that you have for hemorrhoids. It is a suppository that is shaped like a rocket. It can treat both internal and external hemorrhoids. The main part of the Rectal Rocket is placed inside of the rectum, which treats the internal hemorrhoids. The tail part hangs outside of the rectum, which treats the external hemorrhoids.

The Rectal Rocket may seem like a strange treatment, but many people prefer to use it over surgery. Our pharmacists can help you find the hemorrhoids treatment that is best for you.

How To Prevent Hemorrhoids

Constipation is one of the main causes of hemorrhoids. It is often caused by diet. Increasing your fluid and fiber intake will help alleviate constipation that is caused by diet. Refined carbohydrates, such as crackers, muffins and bread can exacerbate constipation. Dairy products can also worsen constipation.

If you have difficulty treating hemorrhoids and have tried over-the-counter and other commercially available prescription treatments that have failed, please contact us to get more information about how compounding pharmacy can help you!

  • It is rare to find health professionals who are so willing to educate the patient on what they need to know.
