My husband was very sick last week with vomiting and diarrhea.

This answer was rated:

My husband was very sick last week with vomiting and diarrhea. Which caused a hemorrhoid. He is using medicated wipes and a cooling creme. It has now started to bleed. Not a lot but he says it is significant. But not like a woman on her period. What steps should we take?
Hi--did a doctor see this hemorrhoid?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No. he has not been seen by a doctor.

So this is an external hemorrhoid that you can see and it's obvious the bleeding is coming from that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

He says that this is not an external hemorrhoid, that it is more of a bulge on his anus. He says yes the bleeding is coming from that. The blood is bright red and not dark in color.

Sorry for all the questions but has he every had this before?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No this is his first time having a hemorrhoid.


OK--first off he ought to have a doctor look at this. For now I'd suggest just cleaning it with witch hazel and not applying any creams or anything to keep it moist.
