Everyone has it, no one talks about it...

Like one out of two people experience during their lives, I suffered from haemorrhoid crises. People who have never had it are unaware that among their friends and acquaintances, a good number of them are subject to these painful and disabling phenomena.

This is the thing’s paradox: despite the commonplace pathology, there is too much ignorance about the subject. Before being affected, few know what it comes from and what the appropriate treatments are.

So when there is a haemorrhoid crisis, most of us are reticent to act immediately and hesitate to ask for advice. The embarrassment – even shame – is explained since the haemorrhoid crisis affects the deepest parts of our privacy. However, many other health and hygiene problems affect us intimately, such as in the field of gynaecology or urology. But it is much easier to deal with these issues than those relating to haemorrhoids.

In my opinion, being afraid to talk about it to those close to us, to the pharmacist or physician, is more from lack of communication about this disease than the level of privacy affected. Television, through advertising, discusses yeast infection, constipation, hair removal, bladder weakness and other intimate diseases. Between friends, in the family, with professionals, we can confide in this subjects. Haemorrhoids are notably absent from crowd of confidences!

However, like varicose veins, haemorrhoid crises are “only” the consequence of a circulatory deficit that leads to inflammation of venous formations, in this case inside and outside the anal canal. A common problem, for sure, but nonetheless very painful!

Suffering is the first reason why we should ask for advice from the onset of symptoms. The pharmacists can refer us: mine advised Micro H Monodoses to treat and and relieve the irritation, burning and itching. He also advised Micro H Wipes for hygiene, which can be really difficult during crises.

These local treatments were sufficient to stop development of the inflammation of internal and external haemorrhoids. He nonetheless recommended, in the event of aggravation, that I make an appointment with my GP. If that were to happen, I would not hesitate, and I invite you to do the same!
