Types of treatment and healing time
If the haemorrhoids, internal and external, are in phase 1 or 2 , there are both over the counter treatments and treatments prescribed by your doctor. These come in the form of ointments, suppositories or pills.
Normally, 10 to 14 days is needed, before the haemorrhoids withdraw, but this is individual. For all treatments, more treatments during the first days and fewer after a while, applies.
Always right dosage and good hygiene
With respect for other treatment methods, we question their dosage measuring and hygienic aspects. Ointments are to be dosed in grams or ”pea”-sizes. There is a clear probability of under -or overdosing. Some ointments are applied inside the body with the help of a little tube. But for a layperson it’s close to impossible to know the dosage-measure you are applying on the tube. When using Hemor*Rite, the dosage is based on time, 8 minutes.
Other treatments recommended that you lube yourself about 4 cm up in the rectum to get a better reach. If you have internal haemorrhoids in phase 2 or 3, and are supposed to push them back up through the sphincters, it feels both uncomfortable and not hygienic. Hemor*Rite solves this for you with the medical device pushing the haemorrhoids for you and when the haemorrhoid are inside, the body’s sphincters supports the treatment by clamming itself around the device during insertion.
Dosing suppositories are easy, one pill per treatment. But unfortunately many insert the suppository with the pointy part first, which is wrong! The flat part avoids suppositories getting to far up the colon and treating areas that are not affected. With Hemor*Rite the dosage is time and only the affected area is treated.
The medical device has been tested and analysed according to all medical standards both by the FDA and according to CE requirements. It is manufactured in surgical plastic, allowing it to be washed in high temperatures. The plastic is completely smooth without any pores, ensuring easy insertion, no bacteria sticking to the device or the device inflicting wounds. You clean the device in hot water and soap, dry it with a towel and return it to its sanitation box, and place it in the freezer. Several products from pharmacies are kept cold, like the haemorrhoid ointments in the refrigerator or lice combs in the freezer (both without sanitation boxes).
Other haemorrhoids treatments
Ointments can be simple and effective method, but not without limitations. Ointments require you do your treatment in connection with your bathroom visits and after washing yourself properly. Not always possible when at work or during a busy schedule.
Cortisone, included in some products, is efficient, but not recommended for use over a longer period as it can affect the mucous membranes. Other ointments smoothen the colon and might contribute to the haemorrhoids coming out during your toilet visit, which is not pleasant, and potentially they will be squeezed in the sphincter.
Getting the dosage right, when treating with ointments is more or less impossible. How do you dosage 2 grams correctly and applying the right dosage to the right place inside your body (even with a tube)? Over- or under-dosage is a most probable situation.
Studies shows that approximately half of all the people using suppositories, inserts the wrong side first, which make the suppository crawl to far up and not treat the exposed area.
It is the flat part that should be put in first and the pointy part last, which is contrary to what most people believe
If you have internal haemorrhoids phase 3, they need to be treated by a specialist through mechanical surgery or through the ligament (rubber-band) treatment. Ligament uses a special instrument that folds a rubber-band tightly around the root of the haemorrhoid. This constricts the blood and the haemorrhoid(s) finally moulder. Hemor*Rite can help by reliving your pain up until the surgery or even help making the surgery possible.
When haemorrhoids have fallen out in phase 4, you normally need surgery to remove the haemorrhoids. It is painful before the wound is healed, which take two to three weeks.
In extreme cases of haemorrhoids, you need to rest in bed to ease the symptoms. Rest takes away the pressure from the haemorrhoids and enables a faster healing process.
If you are pregnant you should lay on the side with a pillow between you legs. If you can’t lay flat on the stomach, a pillow under your hip can help. Even if this isn’t a good solution for everybody, it can help in severe or chronic cases or when nothing else seems to work.
You should avoid sitting down for longer periods time. The pressure from this position is one of the primary causes of haemorrhoids and worsens the situation. If you have to sit – use a soft pillow to sit on and take frequent pauses.
Avoid lifting heavy objects, which can cause pressure on the haemorrhoids. Finally, wear lose-fitting clothes to avoid moisture around the haemorrhoids and wear underpants in cotton that breaths.
