Symptoms of Internal Hemorrhoids
Internal hemorrhoids will also have the tendency to grow to the point that they move outside of the sphincter. This is known as a prolapsing hemorrhoid. If this happens you mignt notice pink areas that spread out into a darker shade of pink. If internal hemorrhoids prolapse, they can become agitated and start to become painful. It is also common to have constant soiling of your underwear if this occurs because of the prolapse. If a prolapsed hemorrhoid does occur, you can gently push it back inside the sphincter with your fingers. If this is a problem, you should consult your physician for more treatment.
Treatments and Prevention
Most treatment for internal hemorrhoids is focused on relieving the symptoms, relieving pressure, and modifying bowel habits. Common ways to do this include a higher fiber diet, normal excercise, warms baths several times a day, stool softeners, and over-the-counter medicines to help with inflammation. If these basic treatments don't help the problem, surgery is the next step. For more information on Hemorrhoid Surgery, view are many articles on your different options.
