MANAGEMENT

  • Application of cream or suppositories (bullet-shaped tablets to be inserted into the anus), soothes itching, pain and diminishes the swelling and bleeding.
  • Apply cold compresses around the anal region (even ice can be helpful).
  • Little rubber bands can be tied around the hemorrhoids, which might cause them to shrivel and whither away.
  • Simple dietary changes such as increasing the amount of fiber and fluid in the diet is enough to prevent constipation and ease the symptoms.
  • Avoid being overweight, and lose weight if you are.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Sitz baths: Sit in a tub filled with warm water for 10 to 15 minutes several times a day
