Hemorrhoids can occur at any age. According to statistics, hemorrhoids increase with age. In other words, the incidence of hemorrhoids is low in children and adolescents, and the incidence is high in adults. The older the age, the higher the incidence. From a professional point of view: the incidence rate is higher for people who are engaged in long-standing, sedentary, and inactive jobs, such as car drivers, teachers, barbers, police, and salespersons.

Pay attention to health care during pregnancy. Women can increase abdominal pressure after pregnancy, especially in the late pregnancy, the inferior vena cava is compressed by the increasingly enlarged uterus, which directly affects the return of hemorrhoidal veins and easily induces hemorrhoids. This situation is especially obvious when the fetal position is not correct. Therefore, during pregnancy, you should go to the hospital for review. When you encounter an irregular fetal position, you should correct it in time. It is not only beneficial to health care during pregnancy, but also prevents hemorrhoids and other anal diseases. In addition, you should appropriately increase your activities during pregnancy, avoid standing and sitting for a long time, and pay attention to keeping the stool unobstructed. After each stool, use warm water to wash the anus part to improve the blood circulation in the anus part.

The area around the anus is easily contaminated by these bacteria, which can induce infections of sweat glands and sebaceous glands around the anus, leading to boils and abscesses. The female vagina is adjacent to the anus. There are more vaginal secretions, which can stimulate the anal skin and induce hemorrhoids. Therefore, it is necessary to keep the area around the anus clean, fumigating and washing with warm water every day, and changing underwear frequently to prevent hemorrhoids.
