Red face Black spot on hemroid

I have what I'm pretty sure is an external hemroid. It seems pretty big, but I don't know how big they usually are. I'm pretty sure it was caused by constipation and straining. What I'm worried about is a black spot on the hemroid. The spot is probably 3 or 4 mm in diameter, and it really scares me, since black is not a color normally associated with my body...

I haven't seen a doctor yet, I haven't had time. Is this a normal thing? Has anyone else experienced it before? Please let me know, I'm really scared.

Hi magicman,

I can relate.

A picture is worth a thousand words...they say.

Hopefully, it will alleviate your fears...but still go to a doctor since they can cause other problems and severe discomfort.

In the meantime you can try:
warm sitz baths
cold compresses
cortisone cream

Increase fibre (gradually) with LOTS of water.

Do a search for external hemorrhoids.

Hope you heal quickly,
quincy
