External Hemorrhoids Symptoms
There are two types of hemorrhoids- external and internal. It depends on their situation according to the anus. The External Hemorrhoids Symptoms appear near the anus and have a layer of tender skin above them.
External hemorrhoids and internal hemorrhoids differ by their treatment, remedies and removal procedures, their complication, their evolution, and pictures.
A blood clot could develop external hemorrhoid, which will lead to painful swelling in cases when ruptured. Then it will be felt as rough, sensitive lump and will bleed. This type of hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, is more spread than internal hemorrhoids and could serve as the example of most often experienced symptoms.
External hemorrhoids are situated outside the body, near the anus area. In summary, every swollen tissue or protruded mass at or near the anus is external hemorrhoid.
The exception of this can be the presence of internal hemorrhoid, which has grown larger and has protruded from inside out. In this case, its origin is internal but it appears as external.
When the blood pools in the enlarged vein, thus creating a clot, or thrombus it is known as thrombosed external hemorrhoids. It takes part outside the anus. This kind of external hemorrhoids is extremely painful, causing swelling and itching, but without any bleeding.
Sometimes the External Hemorrhoids Symptoms can be a cause of different things among which are acute thrombosis, recurring thromboses, or problems with the individual’s hygiene.
If the offending vascular cluster is identified in the doctor's office or another clinical place, then the sharp and recurrent thromboses could be managed with the use of local anesthetic. It is taken with an injection which excites the outer skin and the area under the skin.
External hemorrhoids can be rather painful sometimes. It happens when sharpened thrombosis under the skin appears in the hemorrhoidal vein. Some special events often lead to acute thrombosis.
These can include hard physical activity, straining with constipation, diarrhea, or reduced fiber in the diet. The blood clot and the surrounding edema could cause fast swelling of the skin, highly concentrated with nerve endings which results in a painful feeling.
The pain intensity depends on the length of time, necessary to resolve the thrombosis. Often this period is one to two weeks. During this period, the extended anoderm stays as stretched skin, often known as “skin tag”. Bleeding can be caused by the destruction of the outer skin layer as a result of the external thromboses.
External Hemorrhoids Symptoms can lead to hygienic problems caused by the stretched skin which remains after an acute thrombosis. When such problems occur an attention should be paid to the perianal skin area which folds should be tenderly cared for.
