Hemorrhoids are a familiar disease. When internal hemorrhoids are incarcerated or external hemorrhoids are edema or thrombosis, the anus will produce severe pain.
But is anal pain necessarily hemorrhoids?
That's not necessarily true. It is probably a disease that is more serious than hemorrhoids-perianal abscess.
Perianal abscess is a common disease in the anorectal department. It is an acute purulent infection around the anus. It is a pustule growing around the anus. The main symptom is pain. If not treated in time, it is easy to cause sepsis and necrotizing fasciitis. , Infection and toxic shock, life-threatening.
Once perianal abscess is diagnosed, an incision and drainage operation should be performed immediately, which is to make an incision on the surface of the abscess under anesthesia to release the pus. Conservative treatment such as infusion (antibiotics), hemorrhoid ointments and suppositories will only delay the condition.
Found the condition
Patients usually get sick when they are tired and their resistance is reduced. Diabetic patients are more likely to suffer from this disease due to high blood sugar levels and bacteria proliferate. After getting sick, the patient will gradually show the following symptoms:
1. Anal pain. This is the earliest symptom. It is a continuous and gradually worsening pain, which becomes more severe at night. The patient sits restlessly during the day, can only maintain one posture, dare not move or touch, and cannot sleep at night.
2. Perianal or accompanied by masses. Patients with relatively shallow abscesses can feel a mass around the anus at this time, find that the pain comes from there, and dare not touch or press it at all. Deeper abscesses can't feel the mass by themselves, just feel severe pain throughout the lower body.
3. Difficulty in bowel movements. Because of the pain, the patient dared not to relieve the stool, and therefore dared not eat. The muscles around the anus are tightened protectively, the sphincter of the bladder and urethra cannot relax, and urine cannot be discharged.
4. Fever. Some patients can feel cold and fever, and their body temperature can be as high as 39 degrees.
Self-preliminary diagnosis. With the above-mentioned symptoms of pain, lumps, dysuria and fever, the patient can have a preliminary self-diagnosis.
Do not self-medicate. Many patients who have perianal abscesses feel that they are hemorrhoids, so they go to the pharmacy to buy some medicine for hemorrhoids by themselves. Don't do this, and you must go to a specialist hospital in time to avoid delaying the condition and increasing pain.
