Symptoms of external hemorrhoids may include itching, painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms.
When external hemorrhoid/hemroid swells, the tissue in the area turns blue or purple in color. This condition is known as a thrombosed external hemorrhoid.
Engorged external hemorrhoidal veins under the skin around the anus as time progresses, cause the skin to stretch and skin tags are formed that interfere with hygiene and are uncomfortable.
Bleeding from external hemorrhoids is delayed for days from the onset of pain symptoms and bleeding is dark blood from liquid clot that is expressed. The bleeding obtains from pressure ulceration of the swollen thrombosed hemorrhoid as it is compressed by surrounding anal tissue. In addition, excessive straining, rubbing, or cleaning around the anus may cause irritation with bleeding and/or itching, which may produce a vicious cycle of symptoms.
Draining mucus may also cause itching.
The right diagnosis is of vital importance for the success of hemorrhoids treatment.
