What to do when a hemorrhoid bursts? Is it dangerous?

 When a hemorrhoid ruptures, a clean tissue, a cold compress, or a cold sitz bath can be used to stop the bleeding. It is beneficial to use home remedies for hemorrhoids, such as herbal sitz baths and compresses, creams and suppositories, proper hygiene, and a healthy diet. This allows you to expedite the healing process and alleviate the pain associated with hemorrhoids.

 Hemorrhoids are lumps filled with blood that can rupture and cause bleeding. Bleeding after a ruptured hemorrhoid is usually minor and does not require special treatment. Home remedies can help.

 Hemorrhoids are varicose veins of the rectal plexus that control the excretion of stool and gas, forming blood-filled pads.

 Hemorrhoids can cause inflamed varicose veins and anal tissues to become inflamed, leading to painful ailments and rectal bleeding. Blood may be seen in the stool or underwear.


Why do hemorrhoids burst?

Haemorrhoids can rupture due to pressure from fecal masses on a swollen varicose vein, which can be relieved by emptying the swollen nodule of blood.


What to do when a hemorrhoid bursts? Is it dangerous?

When a hemorrhoid ruptures, there is rectal bleeding of varying severity. If the bleeding is heavy, you can apply pressure to the anus with a sanitary napkin or cloth, apply a cold compress with ice cubes, or sit in a tub filled with cool water. Cold constricts blood vessels, stops bleeding, has an analgesic effect, and relieves swelling.


If the hemorrhoid has ruptured but the bleeding is not excessive, traditional home remedies for hemorrhoids, such as:


Herbal baths

They require soaking the hips in a bathtub filled with water and herbal decoctions of oak bark, chamomile, chestnut, knotweed, witch hazel, and others.


Ointments, creams, and suppositories for hemorrhoids

Trigonozide has a mild anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and healing effect, and lidocaine and benzocaine have anesthetic properties.


Herbal compresses and washing

Anti-inflammatory herbs such as calendula, chamomile, tea, or sea buckthorn oil, which has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and astringent properties, can be used for this purpose (it is rubbed 1-2 times a day around the anus),


Cool compresses

They reduce swelling and pain, but not everyone will benefit from them; some people prefer warm compresses, but keep in mind that they can increase bleeding because they dilate blood vessels.


Proper hygiene

It is critical because it allows you to reduce irritation, inflammation, and infection; the sore area should be washed with delicate preparations after each defecation, then gently and thoroughly dried.


A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and liquids

To avoid constipation, eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and liquids. Difficulties defecating aggravate the symptoms and lengthen the treatment of hemorrhoids; they also increase the risk of hemorrhoid rupture, which a proper diet prevents.


Cracked hemorrhoid - alarming symptoms

The rupture of a varicose vein usually does not cause complications, but in rare cases, intense bleeding may occur. If the bleeding does not stop within 10 minutes or if there are any worrying symptoms, contact your doctor. Surgery may be necessary to heal a ruptured hemorrhoid, and chronic ailments and bleeding from the anus can lead to anemia. Rectal bleeding can indicate other diseases, such as colorectal cancer, which can have other symptoms in addition to bleeding. Medical consultation is always recommended when the problem recurs or is long-lasting.
