That question depends on the person and the severity of the case. Hemorrhoids are a very common condition, affecting millions of people. The itching can persist for as short as two weeks to as long as six months or more. The itching will only last as long as it takes for the cure to work. We normally recommend that patients use Venapro for about three months, to ensure the hemorrhoids don't return.

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located in the anal canal that can cause painful itching and bleeding. They’re often caused by straining during a bowel movement, and they can be extremely uncomfortable. There are two types of hemorrhoids: internal and external. Internal hemorrhoids are located inside the anal canal, and external hemorrhoids are located outside the anal canal. Internal hemorrhoids tend to be less painful, but they can cause bleeding and itching, which can lead to anemia. External hemorrhoids can be more painful, but they can also be more easily treated.

How To Reduce Itching Of Hemorrhoids?

The itching of hemorrhoids can range from mild to intense. The itching is usually caused due to a build up of fecal matter and mucus inside the anus. In its mildest form, it can usually be dealt with by cleansing the area with water and mild soap. You can also use an over-the-counter product to clean your rectum. In its more severe form, you should consider seeking medical advice. Your doctor will be able to advice on the best way to get rid of the itching and deal with the hemorrhoids. Until then, follow these suggestions:

  1. Keep it clean: Wash your hands often, especially after using the restroom. Don't sit on hard surfaces. Take a warm shower or bath instead of a cold one.
  2. Drink plenty of water: Water helps flush out toxins from your body and keeps your skin healthy. Drink a glass of water every few hours.
  3. Avoid constipation: If you have constipation, you may be prone to hemorrhoids. Make sure you drink enough fluids and get enough fiber in your diet.
  4. Take a warm shower: Showers are the best way to keep your skin clean. If you have hemorrhoids, don't sit on the toilet. Instead, sit in a shower with the water running, and scrub yourself gently.
  5. Eat foods high in fiber: Foods like beans, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables help keep your bowels moving. They also help prevent constipation.
  6. Use hemorrhoid creams: Hemorrhoid creams can relieve itching and bleeding. Look for a cream that's made specifically for hemorrhoids.
  7. Avoid sitting too long: If you're sitting for long periods of time, your muscles will tighten up and constrict, making things worse.

In conclusion, there are various ways to treat hemorrhoids and relieve the discomfort and itching. However, the best way to treat hemorrhoids is by using natural remedies such as Venapro. These remedies are safer, cheaper and more effective than any other conventional treatment.
