Autumn is the season when anorectal diseases are prone to occur. Due to the dry air in autumn, many people will experience symptoms of autumn dryness, such as dry mouth and dry stools. Frequent constipation is the main cause of hemorrhoids and aggravation. Regarding hemorrhoids, many people are too lazy to pay attention to it and procrastinate. Hemorrhoids account for about 87% of the total number of anorectal diseases. Patients with hemorrhoids who have symptoms such as pain, bleeding, prolapse of the anus, should go to the anorectal specialist in a regular hospital as soon as possible. At the same time, people with blood in the stool should pay attention not to think it is a hemorrhoid problem, but also to beware of other causes, such as rectal cancer and ulcerative colitis.
Pay attention to your diet and eat less spicy hot pot
After the fall, the hot pot restaurant began to liven up again. People with constipation or hemorrhoids should not covet the spicy stimulus of hot pot, because eating spicy and stimulating food will cause internal organs and perianal blood vessels to dilate, causing hemorrhoids and other anorectal diseases. In addition, if the stomach is upset after eating hot pot Diarrhea can also increase the burden on the anus and induce hemorrhoids. Hot pot should not be eaten often. It is best to drink some cool tea and so on when eating hot pot.

People with constipation should eat more foods that have the effects of clearing heat, cooling blood, and moisturizing bowel movements, such as black sesame seeds, honey, bananas, kiwi fruit, yogurt, etc.
Sedentary office workers are prone to hemorrhoids
Patients with hemorrhoids are mostly sedentary and standing, such as office clerks, accountants, computer operators, editors, drivers, teachers, etc. For sedentary office workers, due to sitting for a long time, blood flow in the abdomen slows down, blood circulation is blocked, and the venous plexus in the rectum is prone to dilate, blood stasis, and hemorrhoids. Especially when sitting on a soft sofa and seat for a long time, the blood circulation is more likely to be blocked, thereby inducing or aggravating hemorrhoids. Therefore, it is recommended that office workers choose a harder seat and get up and exercise for about 10 minutes when working for a long time. Increased exercise is the best way to prevent hemorrhoids.
In addition to those who sit and stand for a long time, the following types of people are also prone to hemorrhoids ---
1. For pregnant women, due to the pressure of the fetus, there will be obstacles to the rectal and anal blood return;
2. People with irregular daily life, such as frequent overeating, like eating spicy food, and alcoholism;
3. People who do not have good bowel habits, such as reading the newspaper when going to the toilet. The habit of reading in the toilet will inevitably prolong the defecation time, easily cause anal congestion and increase in abdominal pressure, affect the anorectal venous return, and cause hemorrhoids.
Blood in the stool is not necessarily a hemorrhoid problem
Common symptoms of hemorrhoids include bleeding, pain, falling sensation, anal itching, prolapse, etc. These symptoms are often mild at the beginning, and if left untreated, the condition will gradually get worse. For example, anal prolapse can be repaid naturally at first, but it is difficult to repay it in severe cases, even incarceration, acute extensive thrombosis, hemorrhagic necrosis and so on.
Although hemorrhoids are not a life-threatening disease, some uncomfortable symptoms (such as anal pain, itching, etc.) caused by hemorrhoids can affect people's mood and hinder learning and work. In particular, internal hemorrhoids are accompanied by bleeding, and when the blood volume is large, it can cause symptoms such as anemia and malnutrition. Over time, it is easy to cause mucosal erosion and infection. In severe cases, it can even form perianal abscess, anal fistula and other diseases.
Patients with mild symptoms can use dietary conditioning or medication under the guidance of a specialist to relieve symptoms. Patients with hemorrhoids should not go to some irregular medical institutions for so-called "radical hemorrhoids" surgery, so as not to cause excessive trauma to the anus due to excessive treatment or improper surgery, which affects anal function, and even threatens life in severe cases.
Many people think of hemorrhoids as soon as they encounter blood in the stool, which has not attracted enough attention. In fact, there are many diseases that cause stool bleeding, such as rectal cancer and ulcerative colitis. Many people with rectal cancer just think that they are suffering from hemorrhoids and take it lightly, delaying the condition and missing the best time for treatment. Therefore, as soon as you find blood in your stool, you should go to the hospital to take precautions.
