Hemorrhoids (Almoranas) in the Philippines
Filipinos love eating spicy foods. It is a common scapegoat for the occurrence of these hemorrhoids (almoranas). Yet, this assertion seems to be a mere myth. Eating chili seeds may pass through the intestine. It may then cause irritation during bowel movements. Apart from that, there was even no scientific basis to blame the anti-inflammatory chili to hemorrhoids incidence. Rather, obesity and eating low-fiber diets are likelier to give you this agony. These conditions may eventually progress to chronic constipation.
Your family history or genetics may highly contribute to the high risk of suffering hemorrhoids. It is a personally proven point. Some of our progenitors and current family members suffer the same plight.
Other normal cause for hemorrhoids are habitual straining during bowel movements (especially when constipated) and lifting heavy objects. For the female population, pregnancy has also shown high association with the development of hemorrhoids, particularly in the third trimester. Any of theactivities that put pressure on your anal area that could feasibly enlarge theveins therein warrants
Age is also one of the factors. Yet, the younger generations also suffer the same condition, regardless of the age. There are other instances that hemorrhoids progress due to unknown reasons, especially for younger ones (even as early as 3 years old).
Signs of Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids is a physical condition that may be present inside (internal hemorrhoids) or outside (external hemorrhoids) the rectum. It could also be both. Hemorrhoids are sac-like lump around the anus and lower rectum. These are actually swollen veins. External hemorrhoids and even prolapsed internal hemorrhoids are visible from the outside. However, usual internal hemorrhoid remains in the anus and, thus, is not visible.
Many people feel pain (others do not). Some experience painless rectal bleeding or manifestation of blood in the stool during bowel movements (others do not). Anal itching may also be one of the indicators of hemorrhoids. This is also common with other conditions. If you suspect that you are suffering from hemorrhoids, it would still be best to confirm it with medical diagnosis and tests.
Treatment Approaches in the Philippines
Many Filipinos still dread the sight of doctors. This logically leads to self-treatment with home remedies like sitz bath (warm bath with Epsom salt), guava leaves, cold ice application, fiber supplements, aloe vera, witch hazel, apple cider vinegar, pomelo, and other stuff that are customarily used. There are also available over-the-counter (OTC) ointments and oral medicine (e.g. Daflon and other Asian hemorrhoid relief brands) here in the Philippines. Preparation H ointment, Hem Control supplements, and other OTCtreatments are nowhere sold locally even on major drugstores.
If there is no success with home remedies, then one should highly consider a medical specialist consultation. Doctors typically prescribe oral medicines and ointments for the patients. Even so, if none of the prescribed treatment works or if the condition becomes severe, doctors may recommend hemorrhoidectomy.
Hemorrhoidectomy is a normally costly surgery operation to remove internal or external hemorrhoids. Cost also differs depending on several factors such as the doctor’s professional fee, hemorrhoid grade, hemorrhoidectomy type and procedure, and others. Government financial help is available, though.

Mayinglong (Ma Ying Long) Musk Hemorrhoids Ointment Cream generally works fine for three (3) days to (1) week of constant treatment. Its suggested usage is twice a day: in the morning preferably after taking a bath and bowel movement routine, and in the evening before bedtime. Some users tend to forget that they have just applied the cream shortly after, rinsing off the ointment. Give it at least an hour or two to take effect. In addition, of course, one should clean the application site prior to applying the cream(preferably with hemorrhoid wipes containing witch hazel). If no hemorrhoids wipes are available, cleansing it gently with water is enough.
ISSUES WITH MAYINGLONG (MA YING LONG)
Normal complaints about Mayinglong (Ma Ying Long) MuskHemorrhoids Ointment is its pungent scent. It is musky (just imagine clay plus cheap perfume smell) but it is tolerable. Perfumes or colognes may do the trick to mask that musky scent.
Another grievance from users is its hot/cold sensation at the application site especially for first-time users or for those who hardly apply menthol on their skin. It is either you would feel that your rectum is on fire or that Siberian wind is blowing directly on your rectum. That feeling should only last for a few minutes to an hour. That is why it is very important to apply only a small amount during the first usage. This is to examine whether the user could handle that burning cold sensation.
Although the chance is slim to nil, allergic reactions should also be one of the elements to consider when using this product. A skin test is vital prior to regular usage. Again, put on a small amount during the first usage. If in case a suspected allergic reaction or adverse effects arise, stop using the ointment straightaway, wash it off, and consult the doctor if necessary. This just rarely happens though.
FINAL THOUGHTS ON MAYINGLONG (MA YING LONG)
Would it be truly effective? It depends. As they say, what works for me may not work for you. We have different biological histories and lifestyle, we eat different foods, and we do different things. The severity or grade of hemorrhoids also plays a very big role. Besides, if the user still experiences constipation or still conducts activities that strain the anal veins, then the use of this cream is of no value. Bad habits would just negate any treatment (even surgery). Make sure to eat foods that are high in fiber, drink plenty of water, and try to avoid strenuous activities.
