Treatment for haemorrhoids

Q: What is the best treatment for haemorrhoids? How about 5% phenol in almond oil injection? If yes, how much volume should be injected?

A:Hemorrhoids are classified according to the degree to which they prolapse out of the anus. First degree hemorrhoids bleed, but do not prolapse. Second degree hemorrhoids bleed, and prolapse temporarily. Third degree prolapse permanently. Hemorrhoids may be complicated by thrombosis and prolapse, and are associated with marked pain and risks of sepsis. First degree hemorrhoids are well treated with pile injections, using phenol in almond oil. An equally effective alternative is banding, using special rubber bands. The success is over 80%, and the effect lasts for 6 months to 2 or more years. Second and third degree hemorrhoids, and those with thrombosis, are best treated surgically.
