Constipation: Hemorrhoids are extremely rare in a toddler. The purple color is likely congestion as a result of constipation. Constipation will cause the color, bleeding and pain with stools. If there is a very red color with a distinct border surrounding the anus, that is usually due to streptococcus and is very painful. ...Read more

Which is more effective and common treatment for internal hemorrhoids inflammation: canasa 1000 mg suppository or anusol hc 2.5% cream. Thanks.

Canasa/Anusol: To treat internal hemorrhoid, I would recommend Anusol Hc 2.5% cream instead of canasa. Canasa enema is used to treat inflammation on the left side of the colon in ulcerative colitis. Suggest high fiber diet with diet supplement (goal of 25-30 grams per day), adequate hydration, avoid straining, avoid soap at anal area. If all failed, hemorrhoidal banding or other modalities. ...Read more

I am experiencing  abdominal pain (generalized) (quality: stinging or burning sensation, sensation of tearing pain, throbbing sensation) (severity: moderate) , irregular menstrual periods, pelvic pain, hemorrhoids, groin pain, hip pain, constipation, mucu

Need doctor to check: Abdominal pain can be from many things. Stomach acid problems cause pain, as does pancreatitis or gallstones. Appendicitis is always a concern (pain is usually right lower abdomen, worsens over time, with fever coming on). If constipated for a while, stool could have backed up and cause pain. Gastrointestinal infections can cause pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever. A doctor's exam is needed. ...Read more

I am 17 years old. My anus is strangely pulsating. It doesn't hurt. It showed up out of nowhere maybe 2 days ago. I am deathly afraid of hemmorrhoids.

Be Not Afraid: Sorry to hear your anus is pulsating. You have a 50% chance of getting hemorrhoids before you are 50 so it is best if you come to terms with this deathly fear now.

Help to ease the extreme pain due to hemorrhoids. Can't defecate or urinate properly. Nor can I move without feeling the extreme pain.

Thrombosed?: At your age I would expect the most likely reason for the pain etc is that a hemorrhoid is thrombosed. While heat packs and conservative management could be tried based on my experience once the diagnosis is confirmed by an exam, surgical incision and drainage is the most effective solution. Of course, prevention of hemorrhoids is good idea as well. ...Read more
