The itching and burning caused by hemorrhoids can make it difficult to sit still. How can you ease the discomfort and fight flare-ups? According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Choose foods with fiber

    Eat more whole grains, bran, and vegetables, or take fiber supplements such as psyllium—along with plenty of fluids—to ease the passage of stools

  • Try an OTC remedy

    Reduce the pain and itching with over-the-counter suppositories (Anusol, Tronolane), stool softeners (Colace), and medicated wipes (Tucks) and other topical products (Preparation H, Anusol HC-1)

  • Try a topical astringent

    Relieve hemorrhoid symptoms by frequently applying a product that contains witch hazel

  • Get relief from flavonoids

    Reduce symptoms with a daily dose of healthful flavonoids; take 1,000 to 2,000 mg of hydroxyethylrutosides or diosmin, or take horse chestnut extract containing 90 to 150 mg of aescin

  • Talk to your doctor

    Ask about prescription-strength hydrocortisone products (Proctofoam-HC, Anusol-HC)
