Learn About Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids refer to a condition where the veins in the lower rectum and around the anus are swollen, dilated and inflamed (similar to varicose veins in legs). This can result in pain, itching, irritation, burning and sometimes bleeding – these symptoms indicate a flare-up. If you have hemorrhoids, you aren’t alone. About 75% of all Americans will have hemorrhoids at some point in their lives. Fortunately, most hemorrhoid symptoms can be treated with Preparation H® products and lifestyle changes, like diet and exercise. The first step to treating hemorrhoids is learning about them.
