How are prolapsed haemorrhoids treated?
Even though prolapsed haemorrhoids come out of the bottom, you may be able to carefully push them back in yourself. They can also go back inside on their own but, if left untreated, they may develop into thrombosed haemorrhoids or become strangulated if the blood supply is cut off. Both of these scenarios can be very unpleasant and may require treatment from a doctor so it’s worth addressing them early on.
Generally speaking, the treatment options for prolapsed haemorrhoids are the same as those for other types and include:
Home remedies such as a warm bath or ice pack applied to the area
Over-the-counter creams, ointments, and suppositories such as Germoloids
Non-surgical procedures such as banding
Surgical methods of removal.
