Can infants get hemroids and if they can is there a way to treat them?.. Or do I just wait and see if they go away?

How can you be so sure that your baby has hemorrhoids? Your baby has to first be examined by a pediatric or child surgeon in order to diagnose these symptoms. The anal structures you are noticing could be polyps. It is also possible that the child is experiencing congenital hemorrhoids , but this has to be confirmed by a specialist. The specialist will help to decide how to treat them.
