Detailed Answer:

Thank you for consulting HealthcareMagic!

I am really sorry for your son's ill health. People between ages of 20 to 40 are most commonly effected by hemorrhoids. Commonest cause is constipation because of inadequate fiber intake in diet and correcting this would help to some extent so that the problem won't recur again and again. However, definitive treatment to stop hemorrhoid bleeding is by different treatment options like cryotherapy, rubber band ligation and sphincterotomy etc. But first of all diagnosis of hemorrhoids should be confirmed by investigations like proctoscopy. As some reasonable amount of blood would have been lost from past two weeks, it needs to checked and replaced accordingly.

As prevention is the best treatment and constipation is the most common cause, his diet should contain plenty of dietary fiber which means eating plenty of fresh fruit, XXXXXXX fresh vegetables, whole grain cereals, leafy vegetables etc. Avoid using laxatives and also fatty, oily and junk foods. Take more amount of water like about 2 to 3 liters a day if you to not have any contraindications to do so. However, definitive treatment consists of options like cryotherapy, rubber band ligation and sphincterotomy etc. General Surgeon can help in this.
