Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid – Urgent Care

February 4, 2013

Thrombosed external hemorrhoid is found on the outside of your anus that occurs when a hemorrhoid develops a strangulation, which cuts-off its supply of blood.

Typically a clot of blood can then form in your hemorrhoid making it usually very painful and extremely uncomfortable, if not frightening.

Surgery is generally required as they are usually too painful to wait for treatments such as cortisone creams which take several weeks to work.

  • Care Measure #1: Preventing Constipation; can easily be achieved by consuming foods that are high in fiber content in your diet every day.  Eat whole grains, beans, fresh vegetables and fruits, but avoiding processed fast foods.  Drink plenty of fluids and water, typically 8 glasses daily.  Make sure you get some regular moderate exercise averaging at least 2½ hours or 1¼ hours vigorous activity weekly.  Or even 10 minute blocks of active exercise throughout your day, every day.  To help increase the bulk of your stools take a fiber-supplement, and try to schedule a regular time for a bowel movement each day.
  • Care Measure #2: Healthy Bowel Routines; use the bathroom as and when you get the urge for a bowel movement.  Remember to start taking your time, relaxing and giving yourself enough time to let things occur naturally.  At all costs prevent yourself holding your breath or straining when passing stools and don’t read whilst sitting on the toilet, get up once you’re finished.
  • Care Measure #3: Adapt Daily Routines; prevent yourself from having to engage in any lengthy sitting or standing activities.  Try to ensure that you’re able to start taking repeated short walks thought your day.  Where possible, stop trying to lift heavy objects, however in circumstances where this is unavoidable, keep your back straight and lift with your legs whilst exhaling as you lift objects, and don’t hold your breath when lifting.

  • Treatment Tip # 1: Tender Loving Care; dab your anus very carefully and gently with moistened toilet paper or baby wipes (water or cleansing agent) or pre-moistened towels after each bowel movement.  When cleansing, avoid using soaps that contain dyes or perfumes, try not to rub or scrub your anal area, and gently pat dry with a soft, absorbent towel.
  • Treatment Tip # 2: Soothing Relieve; for itching, swelling and pain use Aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen.  Several times daily, try applying ice for 10 minutes, followed by warm compress placed on your anal area for 10–20 minutes.  Have warm sitz baths for about 15 minutes at a time.
  • Treatment Tip # 3: Comfort Measures; take bed rest to relieve pressure off irritated, inflamed veins.  To help decrease swelling, try sleeping with a pillow under your hips and lie on your stomach.  Wear underwear made of cotton to help prevent moisture buildup, and wear loose clothes that allow movement freedom and avoid pressure on your anal area.


Be careful to use nonprescription medicines only as suggested by your pharmacist or doctor.

    Hi Lionel, can you tell me if it’s normal for Hemorrhoids to occur often? I also have some blood in my stool but not a lot..

      Hi Sydney, yes it is normal and quite common – hemorrhoids can bleed for weeks, but it suggests they are being injured or damaged repeatedly. Be sure to keep an eye on your iron levels, to prevent anemia. If it worsens see your doctor!
