External hemorrhoids are inflamed or swollen veins at the exit of the anal canal. External hemorrhoids have the same symptoms in terms of the pain and irritation suffered, but they are more easily diagnosed due to their external visual nature.
Symptoms of External Hemorrhoids
External hemorrhoids are often a deep blue color however when they become inflamed they usually become bright red and more painful. They look like a puffed up mound of skin and vary in size from less than 1cm in diameter up to about 3cm in diameter. Irritation, itching and bleeding from the anus or around the opening of the anus are the most commonly reported symptoms.
What causes External Hemorrhoids?
External hemorrhoids are thought to be caused by the inflammation of veins at the anal opening. Some of the more common things that can cause this inflammation include straining to pass stools while going to the toilet, tissue deterioration in and around the anal passage (usually caused through natural aging), increased blood flow and pressure – often through pregnancy, anal intercourse, prolonger cases of diarrhea or constipation, diet low in fiber, and heavy weightlifting. Overweight people are also more susceptible to hemorrhoids.
Tips to Relieve the Pain of External Hemorrhoids
Make sure you eat a diet high in fiber and preferably low in fat – this may help you cure the hemorrhoid altogether, if it doesn’t cure it – it should at least help to reduce some of the swelling. Diets which are high in fiber produce softer stools which can pass through the anal canal with less shearing force (hard rubbing). It is important to drink a lot of water, especially as you begin to increase your fiber intake. Some people find it quite soothing to apply ice to the affected area several times a day. It is also quiet soothing to sit in a bath of warm water – if you can do this a couple of times a day you may find it substantially relieves the pain.
