44 Home Remedies for Hemorrhoids
Talcum powder to the rescue
June 29, 2015
I have been suffering for the past couple of years with hemorrhoids occurring approx. once every 3 months. They are just awful. Anyway, I have found that the creams and ointments don't help much. They keep the area moist and irritated. I have resorted to using Tucks or Prep. H wipes every time I use the BR, then blow-dry my tush on cool setting, then applying Johnson's baby TALCUM powder, NOT the regular baby powder. It has to be 100 percent pure talc. This takes the irritation away. I've heard about applying olive oil at bedtime, but I have yet to try that.

Apple cider vinegar just burns!

Wow was the apple cider vinegar suggestion just a bad joke. It just burns, took it off before it started to burn my skin off. Ugh that was terrible advice for me.

Use wet paper wipes and......
March 16, 2014
Use wet paper towel to clean up after every bowel movement. Along with dry toilet paper. Don't use wet toilet tissue. It falls apart... Increase fiber in your diet. The powdered supplements in your beverage, they are pretty good. The name brand Benifiber or store brands worked for me. Try probiotics as well. Keefer cultured milk (in the yogurt section of the grocery store) or more expensive capsules. All of these did not get rid of the hemorrhoid but ...Completely ....Eliminated the inflammation and pain for me.

Ice and heat

I'm new to the hemorrhoid thing and I came across this site looking for help. I received a cream from my doctor and I've been using it for days but it doesn't help. I did the ice for ten minutes then hot cloth for twenty and it shrunk it quite a bit. My butt is in the air with a hot towel as we speak. I feel so much better, I just hope it last.

Apple cider vinegar
December 06, 2013
I am a single mother who just discovered what living with hemorrhoids for 4 months feels like. I had my son at home and have had them since he was born 4 months ago. I don't trust doctors. Why I would trust anything but natural is beyond me. I am learning everyday. The Internet seems almost important to me now after discovering remedies that work...
So far I am relieved finally after spending 50+ dollars that I didn't have on stupid creams. Apple cider vinegar it works trust me, the instant burn and itch only last a minute or two then it's like the hemmies are gone.

Hammeroids go away. stay away
October 01, 2013
I personally believe that soft stool should be priority. Try to have stool soft than hammeroids will no longer be problem. Use stool softner and add veg and fruits to your diet. Stop eating fried foods and any fatty food. Loose weight if you put on weight. Drink 3 liters of water at least and drink juice.
Don't eat apples it is not good when you have hemorrhoids and don't drink milk or any dairy products.
Take sitz bath 3 times a day. Don't wear tight jeans or pants. Don't sit longer times. Apply ointments to affected areas 3 times a day. Eat little so in morning not much pressure. But most important stool must be soft.
Take some stool softner but don't take bulky one's it is going to aggravate your hemorrhoids and you will be in more pain.
Do some exercise like taking a brisk walking.

Apply betnovate N it is the best cream it got hydro crositone. But do not apply more than 2 days or if you're allergic don't apply. It thin the skin so not to apply more. Apply rectogesic with proctesedyl.Try this cream very good but take stool softener orally. And change your diet only fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water juice.

I have suffered for weeks throughout the past two years. Bottom line, you MUST get your stool soft! Raisin Bran every night with or without milk. A Shot of MOM (Milk Of Mag) every night. Drink a fiber drink three times a day. Following your voids, clean area and stuff a Tuck like pad in the area (5 times a day) and let is sit so shrink the inflammation. Also hit it with Tuck spray before hand for extra shrinkage.
Once gone, simply eating raisin bran every night should maintain healthy life. Extreme cases require an ice cube as long as you can stand it on the herniated blood vessel. Never bear down to go potty, that will surely bring it back!

Get em gone
July 22, 2013
Hemorrhoids can be very painful, I know from experience I've had about 8 in the past year and boy are they bloody. But I've gotten rid of them the same way every time... Bananas.
I know it sounds crazy but I just chomp down on a bunch of bananas and those bad boys clear the hemorrhoid right up, you can also rub the peels around the hemorrhoid area, I know that sounds crazy too but it really will work. Look it up.

The simple things work best!!!
June 27, 2013
I have had a Lima bean sized hemorrhoid for about 3 days now. It was the worst experience that I can recall. I used prep h, proctocal, and several other prescription medicines. NOTHING helped.
I scheduled an appointment with my GI specialist today because something had to be done!!! It hurt to even tip toe around. The only thing that BARELY soothed the pain was running shower water over it or sitting in a bath.
So I sat in a moderately hot bath for about 20 minutes. When I got up I felt so relieved. I looked in the tub and saw clots of blood everywhere (sorry for the graphic description). The hemorrhoid popped thank God!!! When I wiped myself, blood was all over the tissue. I feel amazing right now. Please don't overlook the simple remedies. God bless.

Stop the itch
June 24, 2013
When the itch is unbearable, dip a wash cloth in hot water. As hot as you can take it, then press it on the itchy area. This works incredible for any type of itch. Hemorrhoids, Poison Ivy or whatever. A blow dryer also works excellent. Just know your limitations and don't burn your skin.
