Hemorrhoids will show up during the actual birthing process, however hemorrhoids during pregnancy is know to disappear very shortly after they have had the child. Even though this is true, it is important to keep in mind that hemorrhoids can return at anytime and become far worse condition.

Hemorrhoids in Toddlers – How You Can Help

February 15, 2009

Hemorrhoids are a caused due to inflammation of blood vessels in and around the anal canal. Anyone of any age can get hemorrhoids (even toddlers and young children) although they are most common in people aged 40 ” 65. Toddlers unlucky enough to get hemorrhoids face a lot of pain and struggle. Symptoms of hemorrhoids in toddlers include bleeding from the rectum, itching, burning and pain during bowel movement. If you see blood coming from the anal canal you should get your child to a medical professional as soon as possible.

No one wants to get hemorrhoids and they are even worse for children than for adults. This is mainly because children dont know how to deal with having a hemorrhoid emotionally and they can also sustain long term physical damage to their bodies. Constipation is the leading cause of hemorrhoids in toddlers and as such toddlers it should be avoided at all costs. If constipation can be avoided in toddlers its likely hemorrhoids will be also.

If you suspect your toddler is becoming constipated, you should get them an appropriate stool softener right away. The best thing to do to avoid constipation is maintain a healthy diet comprising of plenty of fruit and vegetables, plenty of water (at least 8 glasses per day), and plenty of exercise. Fiber softens stools naturally while exercise helps keep metabolism high. Water also plays an important part in softening stools.

What to do if Your Toddler Has Hemorrhoids

If you find that your toddler does have hemorrhoids the best thing you can start to do is minimize their pain as much as you can. Make sure they stick to the three things mentioned in the previous paragraph (fiber, water, and exercise) as these will aid in healing the hemorrhoid. You can also do some other things to ensure that they are as comfortable as possible which I will now explain.

Take care to clean the anus with a very soft cloth or tissue. It sometimes helps to dampen the cloth before cleaning. Keep the area as clean as possible to avoid further irritation.

Apply Aloe Vera gel to the hemorrhoids to reduce the burning and stinging pains associated with the hemorrhoids. Avoid having your child sitting or standing for long periods of time as this increases the blood pressure in the blood vessels around the anal canal which can lead to further damage and prevent proper healing.

Soothe the hemorrhoid pain further by applying an ice pack to the rectum ” this also helps to reduce the size of the hemorrhoid temporarily. Some people also find that giving the child a warm sitz bath helps to relieve pain.

A little bit more about me…

December 26, 2008

I thought it was time I posted a little more information about me, who I am, where I live, and my history of hemorrhoids. As you all probably know, my name is Heather-Jane Hunter and I’m now in my late 30’s and I live in central Auckland, New Zealand.


In the past I have suffered from both internal and external hemorrhoids for a long period of time (over 18 months).  I tried a lot of different things to cure my hemorrhoids and read A LOT of books about hemorrhoids…many of the things I tried didn’t work, some gave me adverse reactions and some things were very successful. Even though I’ve never been a big fan let alone expert about vitamins, minerals, herbal products etc, I am a big fan of herbal remedies – they are something that have worked very well for me and a lot of other people I have helped through their battles with hemorrhoids.


I’ve been free of hemorrhoids for over 5 years now and spend a lot of my time trying to help others who suffer from hemorrhoids. That’s one of the reasons I decided to set up this blog…to try and point people in the right directions when they are suffering, share what I’ve learnt and hopefully pass on some of the useful tips and tricks I’ve learnt along the way.


I hope you enjoy the blog – if you have a request for any specific information please let me know!
