Hemorrhoid Cushion: Is It Better or Worse?

Most people just assume that a hemorrhoid cushion makes their hemorrhoids better. This is a common misconception. The truth of the matter is that this cushion, also known as a donuts pillow, can actually make things worse! It was originally designed to help ease pain but really it only causes more of it. Some ask how this is possible. After all, with the hole in the center of the round doughnut, this means the pile itself does not touch when one is sitting.

The issue comes into play because it creates more strain on the anal veins. The buttocks sinks down into the hole on the hemorrhoid cushion and this places all the weight on the anal veins. Of course, this causes more pressure and therefore creates even more inflammation. Many try to do a hemorrhoids treatment at home but fall short because they go about it by using a doughnut pillow.

Since the use of a hemorrhoid cushion actually makes piles worse, it’s best to bypass it altogether and go with a normal pillow that does not create more stress and tension on the anal veins. It’s also a good idea to vary home remedies such as creams, oral pills and suppositories so that the piles are attacked from all angles. The most important part of treatment is finding an internal solution. After all, hemorrhoids are caused by problems on the inside. They should be dealt with on the inside. That is the only way to ensure they are truly going to be healed.
