The next photo was purchased and shows an internal hemroid – center – and a substantial external hemroid – just underneath, with the other bulges also being other external hemroids. The fold of skin toward the bottom may be a skin tag. Small skin tags can be left behind, when an external hemroid heals – the blood vessels resumes normal size, but the skin is stretched too far, and so a little dangly bit of skin is left (a type of skin tag).
The above is a very nasty case of hemroids, and would be surgically treated by a hemorrhoidectomy.
The 2 photos below show the same prolapsed internal hemorrhoids – piles, haemorrhoids, hemroids – in it’s natural looking state, while the second one shows what the internal hemorrhoid looks like when the tissue has been pulled back from it (this internal hemroid is shrinking, as it was taken while using Venapro). The bulges around the internal hemorrhoid are external hemroids.
Below is a picture of Grade 4 bleeding hemorrhoids, I suspect both internal prolapsed and external hemorrhoids are present in the photo. Photo of bleeding hemorrhoids courtesy of copyright holder ?p?st???? Staµat??d??.
Not sure what is going on in the picture, or where the bleeding is coming from, but I suspect the bleeding is coming from inside.
The next two photos of bleeding external hemorrhoids were graciously donated to this web site. The bleeding hemroids photo picture on the left was taken several days earlier than the one on the right, and appears to show the external bleeding hemroid becoming more damaged, perhaps even an abscess (bacterial infection) on the hemroid just starting to form.
The next photo, graciously donated, shows the classical appearance of an external hemorrhoid, in this case, it is a thrombosed external hemorrhoid. Non-thrombosed external hemroids look just the same for the most part, but a more normal color. This one I’m told followed a three day period of constipation and presented with massive pain (undoubtedly the pain was caused by the thrombosis).
The flap of skin over it appears to be an anal skin tag, and is often the result of the old stretching procedure some doctors and surgeons practiced for anal fissures that wouldn’t heal. Such skin tags can also be formed when an external hemorrhoid goes away, as the stretched skin caused by the hemorrhoid is unable to resume normal shape. In this case the anal skin tag was thought to be caused by excessively large stools earlier in life.
The thrombosed hemorrhoid actually looks like a black pearl in many respects, but even though it was thrombosed and causing severe pain, the surgeon considered it too small and sent this lovely lady home with the directions to take an anti-inflammatory, and to take a wash cloth soaked in warm water and salt and place it on the hemorrhoid for a period of 5 minutes twice per day. How would I treat it, although it is an external hemroid and therefore easily dealt with, the blood clot within it makes it difficult as I don’t know how any over the counter product would interact with it. My suggestion therefore would be to wait for the blood clot to clear or be surgically removed, before trying to treat the hemroid.
This next hemorrhoids picture again appears to be of external hemorrhoid, and another thank you to the owner for providing it. Being an external hemroid, I would likely use either Heal Heorrhoids or Neo Healar for it, as they are the cheaper alternatives.
This next photo picture of hemorrhoids below, well, I can’t make up my mind. It appears to be of external hemorrhoids, one of which appears to have a very tiny blood clot (dark spot in the larger hemorrhoid) – thrombosed hemorrhoid. Prior to the blood clot, the hemroid may have been the same size as the smaller one. What’s confusing about this picture of hemroids, is that the larger hemroid is still a reasonably normal color overall. A thrombosed hemroid, in it’s worst state, will normally appear darkish and bluish. The donor of this photo described the pain as agonizing and was off to see a doctor for it. The other noteworthy point of confusion for me is it’s shape and it’s precise location. If it is poking through, then it is an internal hemorrhoid prolapsed out and with a small thrombosis in it.
Below appears to be a couple of photos of a hemorrhoid with a harmless skin flap right next to it. Graciously donated, so a big thank you.
For the external hemroid in the photo above, I would suggest that for cost effectiveness you could use either:
Below is a picture of a tiny little external hemroid, following pregnancy and childbirth. In spite of it’s apparent size, at times it may have been extremely painful and troublesome and even much bigger if straining was going on.
For this external hemroid I wouldn’t try and treat if I were you until after the baby has been weaned off the mothers breast milk, at that point, if the hemroid remains, I would then suggest you could use either:
The following three photos of external hemorrhoids were also donated, so another big thank you.
These pictures show how external hemorrhoids can appear different according to how much straining is going on.
The first picture of the external hemorrhoids is when the anus is relaxed, no straining. The second picture when it is slightly strained and the third hemorrhoids photo shows what the external hemorrhoids look like when there is much straining going on. You can see from these pictures quite dramatically how straining can aggravate and cause hemroids.
You can tell they appear to be external hemorrhoids, because the hole has nothing poking through and hiding it.
Personally, although the two photos on the right show what external hemroids can typically look like, the photo on the left shows that the veins are still able to return to their normal state – so it would be more correct to say the two photos pictures of external hemroids on the right, are of veins that have not fully developed into external hemroids, but they are certainly on their way to doing so. That’s my suggestion anyway.
If your condition does not appear to be like those above, it may be that you have internal hemroids – a condition you cannot see normally, unless you use medical apparatus and someone else – doctor – to assist you.
If you have a condition around your anus that doesn’t look like any of these photo pictures, then chances are you are suffering from a different condition to hemroids. The most likely one being genital warts.
Another point to consider about using the appearance to diagnose your own condition, is that you can tell from reading the above that there is so much uncertainty about figuring things out that way. Hemroids can come in so many different shapes, forms, colors, that proper diagnose really should be left to the professionals.
If you suffer from hemroids, then pain and symptom relief can be obtained very quickly, using Venapro. Taken orally, it is clean and hygenic – you don’t have to touch the anal area at all. Venapro works to heal the hemorrhoidal area, shrinking hemroids, and eliminating the discomforting hemroid associated symptoms of pain, itching, bleeding, swelling, burning, and all those other agonizing nasties. Importantly, Venapro works to prevent constipation, a leading cause of hemorids. To see the photographic results of a fellow hemroid sufferer, who used Venapro for her massive stage 4 prolapsed hemroid and on her extremely advanced external hemroids, check out our Venapro page. You wil be astounded to SEE how well Venapro does, and in such a short period of time.
This photo picture of skin tags was graciously donated by Mark, presumably his alias name.
Mark suffers from Crohns Disease, a disease known for causing skin tags around the anus.
The main obvious difference between skin tags and hemroids is that the skin tags are flattish in appearance and appear more on the rim of the anus, than actually poking through. Another type of skin tag you can get is the common skin tag, and that is a small thing, like a pin head held to the skin by a thin and short stalk.
Many readers send me their photographs in order that I may try to help them understand their condition. I try to answer all emails and comments as quickly as possble, and will ask if I may use your photograph, completely anonymously, in order that it may help fellow sufferers.
