What are Hemorrhoids?.
Hemorrhoids are a network of blood vessels within the anus, when these are put under strain they become blown-up and inflamed, ie. pushing a hard stool.
What causes Hemorrhoids?
There are various causes of hemorrhoids but the most likely one being constipation.
Young children have a knack of delaying going to the toilet, especially when they're busy playing with their friends.
This holding on causes the stool to build up and form a mass inside the rectum, sometimes there's leakage from behind the mass which causes liquid to leak out into the childs underclothes. A parent may mistake this fluid for diarrhea, and should be aware of this.
Watery faeces are a common cause of hemorrhoids in children. A child may sit on the toilet for too long during a bout of diarrhea but this should be discouraged as it puts pressure on the rectum.
Low fluid consumption, in particular water.
Hemorrhoid symptoms: what to look for.
Blood in the toilet or on the toilet paper.
Pain when passing a stool.
Straining while sat on the loo.
Tearful and cranky notably around toilet time.
PAIN. Your child may also avoid going to the toilet because they recognise it's going to be painful.
ICHING. You might observe your child scratching. This can cause the hemorrhoids to bleed which in turn can cause infection and inflammation.
