  • Small mariscs usually do not require treatment. Thorough cleaning with lukewarm water (without soap) after bowel movements is important to avoid inflammation.
  • Larger or frequently inflammatory mariscs should be removed (at non-inflammatory intervals) under local anaesthetic using a diathermy sling or knife. Follow-up treatment with ointment gauze containing polyvidon-iodine(e.g. Braunovidon) and seated baths with antiseptic additives such as polyvidon-iodine, potassium permanganate (light pink), quinolinol (1:1000) or R042. Until healing is complete (usually within a week), use mild laxatives such as linseed, wheat bran, Plantago-ovata seeds (e.g. Agiolax), Indian flea seeds.
