No cure, but no itching, either.I've had bad hemorrhoids forever, and I never have itching. Keeping clean is the answer.
I am meticulously clean, and I keep wet baby type wipes on the back of the toilet. Anytime the TP seems insufficient to get things clean enough, I pull out a wet wipe, an finish up.
This works well, and I never have an itching problem.
To my knowledge, surgery is the only cure, but I am afraid of the surgery, so have no info on that.

Frozen Aloe StripsCut fresh Aloe gel into strips about 3.5cm X 1cm with pointed tip.
Place them in a container. Make sure the strips are separate from each other so that when you use them you do not have to tear them apart.
Use a strip to insert into your anus with your finger. This should be done at night and morning, if your hemorrhoids is not too painful or inflamed to touch.
This remedy comes from a radio talk. It has proven to be very helpful.

Natural physical motion1. Stand on your toes, upright.
2. Keeping legs straight, bend over as if to touch your toes. Don't strain. You don't have to touch your toes, just bend over.
3. Repeat three times, each morning and each nite.
4. Carry on for 2 wks., or until problem ceases.
There are no golfers with hemmorrhoids, they bend over all the time to place their balls or pick them up . Bending over is a natural, historically common behaviour outmoded by civilization. The motion causes retraction of the offending blood vessels, and relief and/or prevention of the problem.

Help For HemmiesMy hemmies put me in the emergency room one night and the P.A. told me to go home and soak 'em in warm water with Epsom Salt. I did and have had no problems going on 5 years now but you will need some moisturizing lotion for your "cheeks".
