How to prevent and Treat Hemorrhoids
Lots of things such as bills, bosses, parking tickets are a pain in the butt. But having a hemorrhoid is really just a varicose vein that sprouts in which the sun don't glow. Are you prone to get them? Well, those who have chronic constipation or who habitually strain to go their bowels are susceptible. So are pregnant women, as the expanding uterus compresses the blood vessels and obstructs the return of blood from the rectum. But they are so common that you may not be able to identify a specific cause. Sometimes you do not even know that you have hemorrhoids. But most of the time, they refuse to be ignored, causing symptoms such as itching, bleeding, and pain. Here are some tips that you can think about to adopt for pain-relief.

Hemorrhoid or Fissure?
While it may not be the subject of casual conversation, rectal bleeding is something you should discuss with your doctor. But very often people are embarrassed ...
Do Some Serious Guzzling
The harder your stool, the harder you have to push, which can aggravate hemorrhoids. Water is less expensive than a stool conditioner, and it is just as effective. It is recommended to try to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. But if water does not help, try a mild, over-the-counter a stool softener. If you are salt sensitive and you have high blood pressure, just make sure that the softener you choose does not have sodium.
Sit in a Sitz Bath
Sit in a tub filled up with 6 to 8 inches of warm water for 10 minutes, three times a day. Add 1 cup of Epsom salts if you wish. It can help reduce the swelling and can be very soothing.
Reach for a Tube of Relief
For temporary relief, apply a non-prescription hemorrhoid preparation. Both ointments and suppositories are quite effective. No need to spend a bundle on these salves. However, most of them are based on a similar formula, so you can get the generic brand as opposed to name-brand ointment. You can also use plain old non-medicated petroleum jelly.
Eat More Fiber
To keep the stool soft, consume a high-fiber diet, especially during a flare-up. It is strongly recommended consume more fresh fruits and vegetables and less red meat and cheese.
Wipe with moisture inside the shaft toilet paper, which is much less abrasive. And also wipe gently. Rough toilet hygiene can irritate a hemorrhoid. Also avoid using scented or colored toilet paper, which contains chemicals which will irritate hemorrhoids.
Try a Pain-Relieving Pad
Apply a hemorrhoid ointment or cream directly to the hemorrhoid, then cover the area with a sanitary napkin that has been soaked in Epsom salts. To make sure that the pad stays in place, attach it to your underwear. Or try the medicated patches such as Tucks regarding hemorrhoids. They serve the same purpose.
