Hi, with a grade 2 the elongated tissue returns inside after bowel movement and often have fissures where the blood escapes which is good to avoid any balloning which are really painful. See needs to use Tucks wipes all the time and ask your doctor about a cream called Protozone which aids in healing and lessons inflamation. The active ingredient is 2.5% corizone cream and really effective but dont use all the time. Once its under control switch over to the 1/2% with aloe.
I agree with the previous post but the problem is, that wipes and cremes may make it better temporarely but don't solve the real problem. Longterm she will problem have to have them removed permanently. So why not tackle the problem and have them removed? She should probably a specialist and talk about the different treatment options. With grade 2, the THD method might be an option. I had mine ligated about a year ago. It was fast and not as painfull as I always thought.
Anyway until then tell her to eat a diet rich in fibre, drink plenty of water and go for a walk in the morning and evening. That helps to keep the stool soft so that she doesn't aggravate the inflammed area.
HELP IS AT HAND. I'm trying to help as many people as I can with this, no worries, I am not a spam person, just so much to say that it's easier to copy/paste than to rewrite it!
This likely means there is a poor/compromised vein structure (vascular system). Don't use cortisone creams, after a short period of time, they thin the skin/vein structure even further. Paying attention to nutrition intake gets to the root cause.
Repair what is there and you can not only avoid surgery (no matter how bad it feels, it is SO worth trying) PLUS you will prevent it from ever happening to you again. (AMEN).
TRUST ME when I tell you, don't waste one more second before obtaining a good leg vein essential supplement with the following ingredients (or you can buy the ones not found in a combo, separately, all easy to find on-line):
1) Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids
2) Rutin (sometimes this is in the C)
3) Stone Root (also called Collinsonia Root)
4) Horse Chestnut (standardized)
5) Butcher's Broom
6) Bilberry extract
7) Grapeseed extract
8) Hawthorne berry extract
9) Goto Kola extract
Initially, I was concerned as I have a hayfever allergy but none of these supplements bothered me, check with doc if you're particularly sensitive.
Depending on the severity of your condition, you will notice at least small improvements within a few days (for me, within 3.5 days before small noticeable improvement). DO NOT give up because it's not instantly better, that is not how this works! KEEP ON TAKING THEM daily WITH ORANGE JUICE (unless you are experiencing any discomfort, of course).
Every day after that you will notice steady improvement. Just don't forget to take the supplements daily. Once you are at 100%, (don't stop before 100% happens) if it's hard for you to take daily, keep at least a regular maintenance dose maybe 3x a week or over weekends to prevent further issues.
At the time of this writing, I had used the following which covered all the ingredients listed above:
1) swanson leg vein essentials,
2) solaray vitamin c with bioflavonoid concentrate, rose hips and acerola
3) swanson stone root
But you can find similar with many other vendors.
Important note that you should take to heart. As in my case, if your veins are in this kind of shape, you may have an undiagnosed nutrition absorption issue, so while you're at it, seriously consider taking a good multiple vitamin with minerals (NOT A TABLET that's encased it what might as well be plastic), also activated B-complex and amino acid complete wouldn't hurt, either. Check with doc or doc who works well with nutritionists if you're concerned and/or sensitive.
Always try to get gel capsules, the ones with the powder you can see inside of it, in case your stomach does not produce enough acid to break down tablets or caplets (and so you're not spending money and taking tablets that don't break down, for nothing).
Finally, you might consider reading a book called The Mood Cure by Julia Ross, it will help you understand the problem with nutrition today for everyone (even if you think you're eating healthily!). I'm just a regular person who, because of suffering, has done a ton of research and found out what really helps.
In two weeks, if this helped you (and I know it will), PLEASE, please take the time out of your busy schedule to come back and post this info for others in need, to let them know that this worked for you, too!
Have a happy life! :)
