Hemorrhoid patients who often come to see a doctor will remove the stool the previous patient has sat on, and take another stool by themselves, or sit down slowly after the previous patient has gone for a while, just for fear of being caught Infected by hemorrhoids. Shows the ridiculous scene of patients with hemorrhoids afraid of being infected by hemorrhoids.
In fact, hemorrhoids are not infectious diseases, they are not contagious. Generally speaking, infectious diseases refer to diseases that are caused by viruses, fungi, and bacteria and spread through air, food, and various other contacts. The source of infection, the route of transmission, and the target of transmission are the three basic conditions that an infectious disease must have. However, the occurrence of hemorrhoids is not caused by viruses, bacteria or fungi. It is due to various reasons that cause dysregulation of arteriovenous anastomosis. The increased blood supply of the anal pad leads to pathological hypertrophy and arteriovenous anastomotic spasm; anal pad ischemia and hypoxia It can cause local necrosis, erosion and bleeding of the mucous membrane; Treitz muscle degeneration, overextension, rupture, and lowering of the anal cushion, it has no direct relationship with virus, fungus or bacterial infection. Occasionally, some patients with inflammatory external hemorrhoids or internal hemorrhoids incarcerated have bacterial infection and inflammation, and even cause infection and suppuration, but this is not the cause of the formation of hemorrhoids. At this time, bacterial infection is only a factor that induces the onset and aggravation of hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are a benign disease. They do not have or produce pathogens such as bacteria, fungi or viruses. Therefore, hemorrhoids are not contagious.
