BAB Baby Hard Until A Lump Appears In The Anal Area
My child’s doc is 10 months old and his bowel is often hard even though I have provided healthy food with protein, vegetables and fruit every day with the right texture. He always cried and sweated when defecating, even though it was only about 2 days apart from the previous chapter. And now there are lumps in the anal area, such as symptoms of hemorrhoid. He said for children under one year too much fiber can also make constipation huh doc? I’m so confused what to do about it? I’m afraid the lump gets worse. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
complaints that your child is aware of can be caused by embeins or called hemorrhoids in the medical world called hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids occur when blood vessels in the anus swell and become inflamed. The most common causes are constipation and prolonged diarrhea or the habit of straining during bowel movements. Constipation that causes hemorrhoids usually occurs because the child consumes less food containing fiber. In infants who begin to be given solid food, the transition from breast milk or formula milk to solid food is likely to cause constipation. If constipation continues to occur and is not treated, your child may experience hemorrhoid.
If you think your baby has hemorrhoids, immediately consult a pediatrician for further examination. In some extreme cases, blood symptoms in the stool can indicate a more serious condition. After your doctor makes a diagnosis, there are various approaches you can take to treat your baby's pain and fuss.
The main step to overcome hemorrhoid is to treat the cause. So if your baby's hemorrhoid is caused by prolonged diarrhea, then he needs to get diarrhea treatment. Likewise if hemorrhoid is caused by constipation. Severe hemorrhoids generally require treatment from a doctor. If the treatment is not successful in treating hemorrhoids, surgery may be needed.
Here are some general and effective treatments for babies that you can do at home, namely:
Give children foods that are rich in fiber, such as vegetables and fruit, with more servings.
Have your baby drink more fluids to stay hydrated. If your little one is bored with water, try giving another drink, like fruit juice.
Clean and soak the child's anal area with warm water 2-3 times a day for 10-15 minutes. This method can reduce itching and pain due to hemorrhoids.
Use a soft, wet, no deodorant tissue to avoid irritation to the affected part
Use petroleum jelly to lubricate their anus during bowel movements
Gently move your baby's hands and feet to keep their body and digestion active
Thus the info I can give
