Have you been suffering from the pain, irritation and itch of hemorrhoids? Hemorrhoids can come on quickly and cause much irritation. Hemorrhoids are a common problem caused by swollen veins in the anal canal. They are very annoying, but usually not dangerous.
TRY TO PREVENT HEMORRHOIDS - Avoid activities that promote hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are normally caused by pressure on the veins in the anal canal or rectal area. Common activities such as pregnancy, obesity and straining during a bowel movement can cause hemorrhoids. Reduce down to a healthy weight and don't sit on the toilet for long periods of time. Eat properly so that you can avoid diarrhea and constipation.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER - Drinking water can help you to stay regular and have easy to pass bowel movements.
TAKE FIBER SUPPLEMENTS - Taking fiber supplements will help you to have an easier bowel movement. You should only take fiber supplements for short periods of time. They are not meant as a long term cure. To have easy to pass bowel movements on a regular basis, eat more fruits and vegetables.
OINTMENTS - Use an over the counter cream or ointment to relieve the pain and itching of hemorrhoids. Over the counter medications work well for hemorrhoids.
SURGERY - Ask your doctor about surgery if you are unable to get relief from your hemorrhoids at home.
