How are haemorrhoids treated and can this be treated online?

Yes, a doctor can treat haemorrhoid online based on your symptoms during a virtual consultation. At Contro, men and women over the age of 18 can chat with one of our Partner Doctors about their symptoms and get treatment prescribed and delivered to them.

The treatment of haemorrhoids depends on the severity and type of haemorrhoids. Here are some common treatments for haemorrhoids:

Self-care measures: For mild haemorrhoids, you can try self-care measures, such as increasing fiber intake, drinking plenty of fluids, and exercising regularly. These measures can help to soften stools and reduce the need for straining during bowel movements, which can worsen hemorrhoids.

Prescription medications: Ointment and suppositories can help to reduce itching, swelling, and discomfort associated with haemorrhoids.

Medical procedures: In more severe cases, medical procedures may be necessary.

Contro's Partner Doctor's are able to assist you with obtaining the correct treatment plan for Haemorrhoids. Sign up here, book a private and affordable consultation and get your medication delivered free to your door in discreet packaging.

Please note: Due to the online nature of our business, Contro is not able to assist with medical related procedures, however, our Partner Doctors are able to provide further medical advice and recommendations based on your symptoms.

Furthermore, please note that we are not an emergency service, and if you require urgent care please seek in-person treatment.
