Hemorrhoids Support Group

Hemorrhoids are the swelling and inflammation of veins in the rectum and anus. Two of the most common types of hemorrhoids are external and internal hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids are those that occur outside of the anal verge (the distal end of the anal canal). They are sometimes painful, and can be accompanied by swelling and irritation.

    Pranicure works for anal itching!

    I have had pruritus ani for about 6 years. I tried everything I could think of to make the anal itching go away. I finally went to my dr, and at first she thought it was a hemorrhoid. I knew it wasn't. She called me later that evening and said it was pruritus ani and explained all the signs and symptoms that I was having. I googled pruritus ani and that's how I found Pranicure ointment. I was a...

    What am I doing wrong?

    I've been dealing with hemorrhoids, including one prolapse, for years. I attributed this problem to a past poorer diet and lifestyle than I currently lead. Recently a new external appeared and thrombosed, which is surprising because I haven't developed a new one in years, I assumed due to my current very good diet and lifestyle. This new hemorrhoid prompted me to seek medical help and I ended up...
  • I'm 35, male. I get a lot of exercise, and I'm fit. 6 feet tall, 155 pounds. I had been dealing with hemorrhoids for 15 years. It had gotten to the point where I had to physically take my finger and push them back into my butt every time I took a poo.

    I have had hemorrhoids for a long time, sometimes i get a break from the swelling, pain and bleeding for several weeks and sometimes I don't. Lately however, it seems that whenever my hemorrhoids are really swollen and bleeding, when I am bending over to either sit on the toilet or clean myself, I will spray the back of the toilet and even a few times the wall of the bathroom with blood.

  • So I have been dealing with these pesky little things for years. I think I was only 25 when after freaking out and going to the ER, because I was bleeding after a bowel movement, the Dr told me I had a hemorrhoid. At the time, I was a bit embarrassed but otherwise relieved. I felt no pain. So years went by, decades actually, with really no problems. Occasionally I would see a little blood,...

    Infected Hemorrhoid?

    I just got back from a long vacation where it was rather difficult to control my diet. So I have been straining while pooping from being a bit constipated, and alas -- my bum swelled up. (Hello, little hemorrhoid friends; good to see you again.)This is usually not that big of a deal for me, as I'd just normally follow my "hem-recovery protocols" of having epsom/sitz baths, applying certain...
