Haemorrhoid, but why & how?

Hi Doc,
I'm only 29 years old, exercise regularly, eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink lots of water, I'm not constipated but I just got a haemorrhoid! Why? How? What can/should I do about it?
(It's external and sensitive)

J, it didn’t necessarily develop because of something you did. If you’re interested in more info, you can mail me at and I’ll forward you an article I wrote a while ago. Good luck.

This site has excellent info on haemorrhoids. Go to A-Z of diseases and click on H and you will find it there. It gives you everything you want to know about haemorrhoids.

Haemorrhoids are so common it's unreal. Try Scheriproct suppositories - they work well, but you can only get them with a prescription. I have been battling with internal haemorrhoids for quite a while now and am using an ointment prescribed by my specialist surgeon. He said just last week when I went to see him, that they avoid surgery unless it is really necessary and treat haemorrhoids with diet and creams/ointments. He also said the minor procedures such as tying, etc are not successful.
