Microwavable Heating Pad
Recently scientists have proven that heat and cold actually relieve aches and pains. Scientists from the University College of London said: “The heat doesn’t just provide comfort and have a placebo effect; it actually deactivates the pain at a molecular level in much the same way as pharmaceutical painkillers work.”
Hemorrhoids are swollen, inflamed veins around the anus or lower rectum. They are either inside the anus or under the skin around the anus. They often result from straining to have a bowel movement. Other factors include pregnancy, aging and chronic constipation or diarrhea.
Hemorrhoids are very common in both men and women. About half of all people have hemorrhoids by age 50. The most common symptom of hemorrhoids inside the anus is bright red blood covering the stool, on toilet paper or in the toilet bowl. Symptoms usually go away within a few days.
If you have rectal bleeding you should see a doctor. You need to make sure bleeding is not from a more serious condition such as colorectal or anal cancer. Treatment may include warm baths and a cream or other medicine. If you have large hemorrhoids, you may need surgery and other treatments. A microwavable heating pad can help to increase the blood flow and relieve pain associated with hemorrhoids.
People most at risk of bedsores are those with a medical condition that limits their ability to change positions, requires them to use a wheelchair or confines them to a bed for a long time.
Bedsores can develop quickly and are often difficult to treat. Several things such as using a microwavable heating pad can help prevent some bedsores and help with healing.
