What are hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are clusters of vessels consisting of small arteries and veins that are intertwined and are in the lower part of the large intestine (internal hemorrhoids) or in the anus (external hemorrhoids).

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms, in different stages of development, are:

1. Pain
2. Itching
3. Local irritation 
4. Burning sensation
5. Bleeding

 

Stages of hemorrhoids

Depending on the stage of their development, hemorrhoids are categorized in four degrees:

             

  • First-degree hemorrhoids are hemorrhoids that are not visible from the outside and can only be seen through the proctoscope, during examination

  • Second-degree hemorrhoids are those hemorrhoids that bulge from the anus

  • Third-degree hemorrhoids are those hemorrhoids that bulge from the anus and can be pushed back in by the patient.  

  • Fourth-degree hemorrhoids are those hemorrhoids that are bulging and can be easily pushed back in

 The treatment of first- and second-degree hemorrhoids is conservative, while the treatment of third- and fourth-degree hemorrhoids can be invasive.

What is Troxiven?
The NEW combination proposal for the relief of hemorrhoid symptoms
Τroxiven Retard

A balanced combination of 3 flavonoids and folic acid. Diosmin, hesperidin and troxerutin all contribute to the adequate functionality and tone of the capillary/venous system. They act against the fragility of capillaries and veins and improve microcirculation through their antioxidant effect, while folic acid also contributes to blood production.

Method of taking the pill: 1 tablet per day, or 3 tablets for 5 days in case of acute hemorrhoidal attack.

Τroxiven Gel

Troxiven Gel is a dermatologically tested cold gel that consists of 10 ingredients. For example, the combination of 3 flavonoids contributes to better blood flow in microcirculation, thanks to their antioxidant effect, while Asian pennywort contributes to the integrity of connective tissue and improves capillary permeability. All the ingredients found in Troxiven Gel are rich sources of flavonoids.

Method of application: Spread 2–3 times during the day in the affected area. In order to increase its cryotherapeutic action, keep it in the fridge.
