View Full Version : tmi...advice on hemorroids
hey ladies im sorry if this thread has been done before im on my phone and cant search but with only 5 days to go until my csection the very lucky me has come down with a case of the nasty's. Its only a very mild case but its so annoying! I have read they go away after pregnancy but does anyone have any remedies on how to stop the itch in the mean time?? Its not bleeding or anything its just itchy and sore.....help???
I recommend asking your chemist, they have ointments that help to reduce the swelling while numbing the area. That with Panadol helped me :)
You could try Desitin.... it's a nappy rash cream which contains 40% zinc oxide. You can also use it for other stuff like chaffing etc so I find this is a good cream to keep around the house.
if you can still manage a bath a salt water bath really helps with the pain and swollen-ness. I live in salt water when i get them :o
a cream like proctosedyl or hemocane help too they have a numbing effect and help take the edge off the itch
some people dont get them in pregnancy but after pregnancy.
i got mine about 6 weeks after birth, i think it was from pushing in labour.
i used a cream from the chemist.
as you are having a c-section i imagine that you wouldnt develop more after your birth.
I too had no problems during pregnancy but blew one out while pushing ;) It was immediately noticeable the first time I went to the loo. It didn't hurt or bleed..... just felt like I had a grape stuck there (sorry TMI :o) Anyway my Ob prescribed Proctocedyl and it really helped. It took many months to go away and it still plays up from time to time. I'm expecting another serious blow out in November :yes:
i got them after giving birth to my daughter.. I went to the chemist and got proctosedyl and that has worked wonders for them...
