Hemorrhoids cream works wonder for discomfort like swelling and itchingHemorrhoids can be painful and incredibly itchy. The good news is that there are a few different ways to treat haemorrhoids. You can stop the itching if you take a warm bath and just fill a bathtub with a few inches of water and soak in the bath for 15 minutes at a time. Alternatively, try using some form of over-the-counter wipes or hemorrhoid ointment, which could help to stop the itching and bring down the swelling.

Ice is good for stopping the swelling, and the cooling effect can help to stop you from wanting to scratch as well. Whatever you do, try not to scratch them, because this will make them worse. Try to wear cotton whenever possible. This is breathable and will allow you to cope with the itching better.

The best way to treat hemorrhoids is to try to avoid them from getting bad in the first place. When you are going to the toilet, try not to strain. It is the straining to pass stools that can make them appear. Often, a simple dietary change (eating more fiber), is enough to help to stop them from getting bad.

Is there a way to treat hemorrhoids?

There are creams and suppositories that you can take that will work wonders for discomfort in the case of mild haemorrhoids, but for bad ones, you might need to get more proactive medical intervention. Surgery is sometimes recommended if the haemorrhoids are located in an area where there is a lot of nerve endings, such as the lower part of the canal.

Before you get surgery, though, you should try every other possible intervention. Drink lots of water, and look at ways to stop irritating your anus. Wipe with baby wipes instead of with dry toilet paper, for example. Try patting your bottom rather than rubbing it, and use mild creams to stop the swelling. If mild OTC creams don’t work, then a combination of corticosteroids and painkillers could be enough to help you. But, you will need to try not to scratch while you are getting the treatment.

Laxatives can help people who are constipated, but they should not be used long term because they can have a negative effect on your gut flora. It is better to try to find dietary changes that will help you to have a functional digestive system in the long term, rather than relying on bulking aids or drugs to make your intestines more active.
