Expansion of hemorrhoidal veins can manifest itself with a variety of unpleasant symptoms - itching, inflammation of the nodules, pain. Often, hemorrhoids, among other things, also begin to bleed.
Bleeding with hemorrhoids is actually quite dangerous. But the patient should not be afraid and panic when such a symptom manifests itself. Stopping hemorrhoidal bleeding is usually straightforward.
Causes of the problem
With hemorrhoids in the intestine, among other things, there is a serious violation of the outflow of blood. The vessels in this place greatly increase due to inflammation and form knots and plexuses.
In the process of chronicity of the disease, such formations begin to inflame regularly. At the same time, the walls of the hemorrhoidal vessels become thinner and at the first excessive effort they break. The result of all this is bleeding.
A patient who notices blood after a bowel movement should first apply a paper ice bag to the anorectal area. This will contribute to the narrowing of the venols and capillaries and, as a result, to a decrease in the permeability of the vessel walls.
If the bleeding does not stop after the ice compress, the patient needs to take some hemostatic drug. This can be, for example, "Dicinon", "Etamsilat", "Vikasol", In case of severe bleeding, experts, among other things, advise applying a special hemostatic sponge to the hemorrhoid. Saturated with blood, the latter will simply squeeze the vessels, resulting in a stop of bleeding.
How to treat
Of course, with the development of hemorrhoidal bleeding after taking emergency measures, the patient should definitely visit a doctor. The specialist will assess the situation and give the necessary recommendations.
You can, of course, treat hemorrhoids at home using folk methods. But such methods can only be used in addition to the basic scheme developed by the doctor.
For example, many patients use such a home treatment for bleeding hemorrhoids as cold baths. To do this, make an infusion of astringent medicinal herbs - oak bark, calendula, chamomile - and cool it to 20 C. The bath is taken for 5 minutes.
You can try to get rid of bleeding with hemorrhoids and through microclysters. In this case, a decoction of astringent herbs is also used. For its preparation, a tablespoon of herbs is poured into 100 ml of boiling water and cooked over low heat for 30 minutes.
Hemorrhoids, especially bleeding hemorrhoids, are a serious disease. It can be difficult to cure it with both medication and folk remedies. Very often, surgical intervention is required to eliminate such a problem.
In any case, the development of bleeding with hemorrhoids must definitely try to prevent. To do this, you should:
- drink less tea and coffee, and also completely abandon alcohol;
- minimize the number of fatty, spicy and salty foods in the diet.
Also, the patient should try to lead as active a life as possible. Morning jogging and gymnastic exercises for hemorrhoids will not be superfluous activities.
