What the cause of hemorrhoids
Not medical advice: Hemorrhoids, which are swollen veins in the anal canal, can be caused by hormone changes during pregnancy and intense anal pressure during labor, obesity, persistent diarrhea or constipation, rushing to complete bowel movements, and medical conditions like long-term heart and liver disease.
50% of the world’s population will have suffered from hemorrhoids by the age of 50.
Ferndale Healthcare recently launched a topical, local anesthetic called RectiCare(TM) (Lidocaine 5%) Anorectal Cream. The medication works quickly to relieve burning, itching, and pain caused by hemorrhoids. RectiCare cream contains the highest non-prescription strength of lidocaine available and is currently available at drugstores nationwide.
