Problems When CHAPTER
Doc, I want to ask for pain relief when defecating how is it doc? Previously I had hemorrhoid and the longer when the bowel movement is very painful to remove the stool from the rectum. are there certain medications that I should take?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The pain you feel during bowel movements can be caused by your own hemorrhoid (usually if your hemorrhoid is an external hemorrhoid or hemorrhoid that appears in the anal area), it can also be caused by a wound in your anus (anal fissure). Both of these problems actually arise most often because of constipation, which is usually the sufferer will straining very strongly when defecating, squatting / sitting for a long time when defecating, as well as large, dry, and hard stools.
The following are some things you can do to help reduce pain in your anus and also help overcome your constipation:
If the anus is very painful, you can compress your anus with cold compresses (ice cubes wrapped in a clean cloth) for the first 1-2 days. You are also allowed to take mild painkillers such as paracetamol to help reduce hemorrhoid pain if it is very disturbing to you (for example to make it difficult for you to sit or have trouble sleeping) Continue with sitz bath that is soaking your anus area in warm water for 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times a day Avoid straining too hard when defecating Try to defecate every day and do not resist the urge to defecate Avoid lifting too heavy objects Increase fiber consumption, drink enough water (2-3 liters a day), increase your physical activity (don't just sit and lie down) If your stool feels very hard and difficult to remove, try to use stool softeners to help expel your stool If you see a wound in your anal area (anal fissure), you can apply petroleum jelly around the wound to help reduce pain in your anus. If you notice that there is quite a lot of blood when you defecate or pain in your anus is getting more intense, see your doctor immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
