Questions and Answers
Sitting on hard vs soft surface with hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels in the lower part of the rectum. Hemorrhoids can be formed internally or externally and they are usually painless unless blood clots formed in the affected blood vessels causing the hemorrhoids to swell and they are usually very painful. Sitting on a hard surface if you have external hemorrhoids will only worsen the pain and it may also cause the swollen blood vessels inside the skin to rupture forming internal bleeding and blood clots. On the other hand, sitting on a soft surface like on a soft sofa will effectively cushioned your swollen hemorrhoids making it less painful when you sit and reduces the risk of ruptured hemorrhoids. To sum it up, sitting on a soft surface is much better than sitting on a hard surface if you have an external hemorrhoid.
Do hemorrhoids hurt to sit on hard surface?
Hemorrhoids can hurt regardless of your seat's rigidity. However, softer cushions will certainly treat your hemorrhoids better than a hard wood seat, especially if they are incredibly painful.
