Hemorrhoids, commonly known as piles, are inflammations of veins in the anal area (external hemorrhoids) or in the lower part of the rectum (internal hemorrhoids) that can cause a lot of pain (especially when sitting or during defecation), accompanied by light bleeding, anal itching, and hard, tender lumps near the anus. In many cases they are not painful, but if they are not treated and blood clots form, there can be complications and intense discomfort can begin.
The causes of its appearance are usually increased pressure in the anus, frequently during pregnancy, childbirth or due to constipation. This pressure causes the anal veins and tissues to swell and cause pain.
Hemorrhoids are very common. They are the result of increased pressure in the anus. This can happen during pregnancy, or childbirth, and due to constipation. The pressure causes the veins and anal tissues to swell. It is important to treat them as soon as possible, since if they are very large, they can come out causing a prolapse, or a blood clot can form, becoming tremendously painful (thrombosed external hemorrhoid).

Maintaining adequate intimate hygiene is especially important for its prevention, regularly using wipes to clean in depth and helping to soothe minor pain and irritation. At Farma2Go we have a wide variety of products to treat hemorrhoids, with ingredients such as aloe vera, which provides anti-inflammatory properties, or horse chestnut, which promotes blood circulation. Gels and ointments with a calming effect, and tablets or solutions that act in areas of excess pressure as a decongestant, providing comfort and calm.
For external hemorrhoids, the use of ointments, suppositories or wipes is recommended to help reduce inflammation and pain. It can be combined with natural remedies that help soften stools and strengthen venous circulation to alleviate discomfort.
For internal hemorrhoids, more aggressive treatments are necessary, such as the placement of elastic bands to strangle it, laser treatments, cryotherapy or, as a last option, surgical intervention.
