Hemorrhoids are external and internal. And depending on the severity of the disease, hemorrhoids can be either acute or chronic. With external hemorrhoids are located under the skin and above the rectal mucosa. With internal hemorrhoids, these nodes are located above the rectum line. But regardless of the nature of the course of the disease, the main symptom is bleeding - the more neglected the disease, the more abundant it is.

The listed complications are accompanied by unbearable pains, pus and high fever. In addition, blood and mucus in the stool can be observed during defecation.
Internal hemorrhoids are similar in appearance tothe outside. Blood is also observed on toilet paper, a strong itch and a sensation of a foreign body in the anus.

Especially dangerous is acute hemorrhoids, in which allsymptoms are pronounced. The patient complains of sharp piercing pain when walking and emptying, high temperature. There is also abundant blood on toilet paper and toilet bowl. This stage arises because of the infringement of the nodes or thrombosis.

Medicine offers three treatment optionspathology: conservative, minimally invasive and surgical. Everything depends on the course of the disease and on its shape. In the case of conservative treatment, various antihemorrhoidal suppositories, creams, ointments are prescribed. Often, along with medicines prescribe herbal preparations that have hemostatic and anti-inflammatory properties (clover, chamomile, nettle).
A minimally invasive method is recommended whenconservative does not have a proper result. Latex rings are applied to the hemorrhoids and eventually the "bump" simply dries up and disappears. This procedure is painless and effective. If these two methods do not help, surgery is required.
