Winter is a season when many people "secretly" suffer from piles. According to the report by the National Health Insurance Service (of Korea), about 750,000 people consulted doctors for piles in 2013. It also added that winter (especially January and February) had the highest record of pile patients around the country.
What is hemorrhoids or piles?National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at National Institute of Healthdefines hemorrhoids as "swollen, inflamed veins around the anus or lower rectum." They are either inside the anus or under the skin around the anus." People who have experience of suffering from piles or have seen someone, you would know how painful and uncomfortable it is, as it makes you difficult to stay seated. The most common symptom of hemorrhoids inside the anus is bright red blood covering the stool, on toilet paper or in the toilet bowl.
Why do we get hemorrhoids in the first place? When one has hemorrhoids during winter, it could be that the blood may pool in an external hemorrhoid, which means it results from irregular circulation of blood. This is because when the temperature drops, the capillary vessels in the body contracts, thereby blocking the blood circulation and resulting in blood clotting.
Hemorrhoids also result from straining to have a bowel movement. Or, in other cases, it is as a result of factors such as pregnancy, aging and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Especially when the weather gets chilly, people tend to stay indoors more and exercise less and drink less water. When one suffers from chronic constipation, it can aggravate the hemorrhoids symptoms.
Treatment may include warm baths and a cream or other medicine. If you have large hemorrhoids, you may need surgery and other treatments. But when you are in the initial stage where you spot blood in your toilet, simply changing your lifestyles can help you prevent from the pain of piles.
