"Doctor, I have had hemorrhoids for many years. I have only had blood in the stool once. I don’t usually have any pain. That’s because there is a piece of meat outside the anus. It’s not beautiful. Recently, I heard that the old man said that fig leaves can be smoked by boiling water to smoke out hemorrhoids. A piece of stuff fell out of it, it was swollen and a little painful. What's the matter? Do I have a new hemorrhoid?"
"Doctor, a friend of my friend, recommended me a secret ancestral recipe for hemorrhoids cream. It is amazing. After applying it, hemorrhoids can disappear and remove the roots. Is it reliable?"
"Doctor, I heard that eating pig or sheep large intestines, snails, loach, and Sophora japonicus can cure hemorrhoids, can you?"
Fumigation to smoke off hemorrhoids? Ointment to root hemorrhoids? Food for hemorrhoids? How can anorectal surgery all over the world exist for so many years?
Drug fumigation, external application of ointment, diet therapy and health preservation are definitely effective in treating hemorrhoids.
However, the therapeutic effects of drugs are limited to reducing swelling and pain, stopping bleeding; fumigation, relieving pain in anal fissures, healing wounds, and maintaining the anus; diet therapy, maintaining the anus, and slowing the development of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids, the extra fleshy meat inside and outside the anus, can't be eliminated by medicine, and it can't be removed by smoking.
Hemorrhoids include internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, and mixed hemorrhoids. Their "components" are nothing more than skin, mucous membranes, blood vessels, and fibrous connective tissue.
The skin, mucous membrane, and fibrous connective tissue among them expand and relax, and the blood vessels expand and flex into masses, which will increase the formation of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids come out, and often do not cause discomfort. When there are short-term or long-term irritation, the hemorrhoid blood vessels are congested, hemorrhoid blood vessels are ruptured and congested, the hemorrhoid mucosa is damaged and eroded, and the tissues move downward and loose. Only then can there be swelling, pain, bleeding, or prolapse.
Drugs can only work against pathological conditions such as congestion, vascular rupture, congestion, and mucosal erosion, to improve these conditions and relieve discomfort.
"But why did my friend's hemorrhoids come out and disappear with the medicine?"
This is also true. Some hemorrhoids will disappear with ointment or fumigation.
If the blood vessels under the perianal skin or rectal mucosa rupture and become clots, a kind of thrombotic hemorrhoids will occur, including thrombotic external hemorrhoids and thrombotic internal hemorrhoids.
Thrombotic external hemorrhoids, the capillaries under the skin of the anus are ruptured, the bleeding stops and will be blocked, and the blue-purple bulge covering the skin is convex outside the anus. Suddenness, pain, drug-assisted treatment, usually 3-7 days of blood stasis absorption, can Pain relief and bleeding, hemorrhoids gradually disappeared.
Thrombotic internal hemorrhoids, rupture of the submucosal capillaries in the lower rectum, lymphatic circulatory disorders, a red "ball" covering the mucous membrane will come out of the anus, or only manifestation of fullness and falling pain in the anus, push the prolapsed internal hemorrhoids in time Go back to the anus and cooperate with medicine to improve the microcirculation, the hemorrhoids will disappear, or even not appear for a long time.
Fumigation treatment is to decoct the medicine in water or soak it in hot water, and then fumigate and wash the anorectal area while hot. The medicine and heat will accelerate the blood circulation of the anorectum, which may cause vascular congestion, rupture and bleeding of hemorrhoids, and local lymphatic circulation disorders. For internal hemorrhoid bleeding or hemorrhoid swelling and pain, fumigation is not recommended.
The friend who used the fig leaves to fumigate and wash the internal hemorrhoids was congested and swollen from the anus.
Hemorrhoids are formed by congestion, expansion, and flexion of blood vessels in the submucosa of the perianal and lower rectum, as well as the proliferation, relaxation, and displacement of the surrounding fibrous connective tissue. They are normal tissue hyperplasia.
Hemorrhoids, hyperplasia, cannot be eliminated, no symptoms of discomfort, no treatment. There is no need to eliminate hemorrhoids if the medicine can relieve the symptoms. Medications cannot eliminate hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids do not have to be eliminated or surgically removed. Therefore, do not believe in the so-called omnipotent miraculous drug.
