Had an external hemorrhoid burst this morning, bleeding has stopped. Afraid that tomorrow's bowel movement will cause it to bleed again. What to do to minimize potential bleeding? Have to go daily :)

Care of hemorrhoids: Home therapy for hemorrhoids: bowel regimen (fiber, stool softeners, water, juice probiotics, laxatives to achieve two soft bowel movements daily), salves (prep h, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) anti fungals), and hygiene (shower, hair dryer area daily).

Why would a couple of doses of tripple bufferred aspririn always cause a couple of days of bleeding with bowel movements (long history of this)?

Why would a couple of doses of tripple bufferred aspririn always cause a couple of days of bleeding with bowel movements (long history of this)?

Live and learn...: Your "long history of this" repeatedly proves the point that Aspirin is a platelet inhibitor that promotes bleeding. The question is not will you bleed by taking "a couple of doses" of Aspirin but from where do you repeatedly bleed? There are many benign and malignant causes of bleeding that Aspirin can promote. Please don't delay further getting evaluated--go see your doctor this week. ...Read more

My son us bleeding from his rectum when he has a bowel movement. His bowels are kinda hard n big could it be causing that?? He said he wasn't hurt.

Yes: Kids with hard or bulky stools or some that push out too fast will cause a crack in the outlet. This deposits bright red blood on the outside of the BM. It tends to recur as long as the stool is hard/bulky. Going more often, or using a stool softener like miralax can help over time. I've never seen a kid with a hemorrhoid. ...Read more
