Signs and Symptoms of Hemorrhoids
are enlarged, swollen veins that can occur either inside (internal hemorrhoids),
outside (external hemorrhoids), or around the anus. External hemorrhoids are often the most painful.
Internal hemorrhoids are not as painful as external hemorrhoids and can range in size from a slight swelling
to large, sagging veins that stick out. Internal hemorrhoids may cause
painless bleeding during a bowel movement. If you notice blood covering the stool, in the toilet bowl, or on
the toilet paper, which is common with internal hemorrhoids, make sure to contact your doctor as soon as possible.
A person may have both internal and external hemorrhoids.
Symptoms of hemorrhoids include occasional throbbing pain, itching, burning sensation, bright red blood on
toilet paper or stool, or a lump of soft tissue protruding outside of the anus.
Causes of Hemorrhoids
Common causes of hemorrhoids are constipation
, straining during bowel movements and pregnancy.
Constipation is often the culprit if an individual tries too hard to have a bowel movement,
which causes the veins to pop out. Hemorrhoids do tend to shrink when pressure is off, but daily straining
can make them continually protrude, bleed and hurt. Constipation should always be taken seriously and be
treated right away.
While home treatment may be all that is needed to relieve the discomfort of minor hemorrhoids,
any rectal bleeding needs to be evaluated by a health professional. In some serious cases, surgery may be needed.
Home Remedies for the Treatment of Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids Home Remedy Using Sitz Baths
Warm water relaxes the sphincter muscle, which can help soothe the pain associated with hemorrhoid protrusions.
- Fill your bath with three to four inches of warm water.
- Don't add anything to the water.
- Sit in the tub for 15 minutes.
- Repeat this several times a day.
When hemorrhoids are sore, sitz baths are the best and easiest way to get quick relief.
Herbal Remedy for Hemorrhoids Using Petroleum Jelly or Zinc Oxide Paste
Studies have shown that Petroleum Jelly and/or Zinc Oxide work as well as other expensive creams.
To reduce the pain and swelling of hemorrhoids either or both can be used.
- After wiping, dab a small amount of Petroleum Jelly or Zinc Oxide on a cotton ball and apply to the swollen area.
- Keep the swollen area dry and clean. Make sure not to use any scented toilet paper, soap or
body wash containing chemicals that can irritate the skin.
Hemorrhoids Home Remedy Using Psyllium Seeds
The most common cause of hemorrhoids is a low-fiber diet, which causes constipation and leads to small
and hard stools that are difficult to pass. Psyllium
seeds are high in fiber and help make the stool
softer and easier to pass. Psyllium seeds help prevent hemorrhoids and also make bowel movement less
painful. It is recommended to make Psyllium fiber part of your diet. It can easily be found at most herbal
- Start taking one teaspoon of Psyllium seeds in an 8 ounce glass of water in the morning as part of your breakfast for a week.
- In the second week add another glass with your lunch.
- Slowly during your third week make it a habit of drinking psyllium seeds three times daily.
When you are taking psyllium seeds 3 times daily, you don't need to take any other fiber supplement.
Make sure you drink lots of water when taking psyllium or any other type of fiber or fiber supplements
because fiber creates large, soft stools by absorbing water. It is recommended to drink 1/2 ounce of
water for each pound you weigh.

I suffer from swollen piles I think...I gve birth abt 3months ago nd wen I feel I hve a stool then when I go 2ra toilet it hurts much when I po nd it bleeds feels like my anus is tearing!!!
good ideas! but i got some more advice on how to shrink hemorrhoids. check it out~
i am suffering from external haemoroids. its very painful. plz help.
DON'T take aspirin, ibuprofen or Naproxen as they make it much worse! If you have to take pain medicine make it acetominophen(Tylenol) . I will try the cayenne. If I drink water with a tablespoon of psyllium husks twice a day I'm usually OK but what causes mine are red meat, white flour, coffee, alcohol --just my favorite things.
Use petroleum jelly ......trust me nothing else works and lay down take stool softners and eat oatmeal and drink alot of water . When taking a dump use shower head spray your anus clean dont use toilet paper and use your hand with cold wAter if you dont have shower nozel do not use soap and dont clean to much you will irritate it more. Witch hazel works great but for short time after use petroleum and wear loose underwear . I tried evrything evry doctor in new york believe i know what you ppl are going through and im a officer i sit drive stand run hemroids almost got me fired . You have to cope with it no more spices bland dull food yep life can suck. Peace out
Stool is usually the same color naturally. Internal hemorrhoids are usually painful only if they become thrombosed or necrotic.
how to curea hemorrhoid
I have been suffering from hemorrhoids for the past few months and trust me its something i wouldn't wish even on my worst enemy. Initially. i tried using preparation-H wipes and gel but it gave me only temporary relief and no reduction in the size. So i tried this procedure the following mixture that worked slowly but surely. First, make a concoction of olive oil, coconut oil, honey, brown butter(Indian ghee) a tablespoon of each. Then, as and when you want to use, grate and little bit of garlic in maybe half a teaspoon of the above mixture and a large pinch of turmeric. Apply this mixture on your hem. Trust me this really works. It will definitely sting at first no doubt but it will give results. Make sure the garlic is freshly grated every time you apply the mixture. Later on, once the 'roids have decreased in size, you can try a mixture of just plain ghee and honey and the important thing here is pushing them back in to prevent them from hardening up and forming a clot. Also, try to increase fiber slowly in your diet as a sudden increase in fiber will cause gas, bloating and either constipation or diarrhea in some. Try to avoid garlic and just apply the above mentioned mixture with turmeric if you have bleeding 'roids as some people are super sensitive to garlic.
I'd like to read all the comments. Sounds intriguing. Is it terribly expensive if you happen to go to Canada as a tourist? I will look for it if I ever travel there. Foreign pharmacies and grocery stores are always fun to shop.
I share your pain everyone I suffer from them as well. I use ibuprofen 200mg.I take about 6 as my doctor recommended
helps me sleep cause its all I care about when I'm in pain.
It's been since November for me,, I do everything i am suppose to,, prescriptions,,,,nothing worked until i tried orajel. Use externally, itching, burning and pain is gone. Last night, i actually slept all night!!! Try it.
Some excellent advice here for hemorrhoid sufferers, I have found that for an alternative Hemorrhoid Home Cure then there is also some good advice at http://hemorrhoidhomecure.blogspot.co.uk/
Pls help me..i dont knw what to do its getting bigger i can sit properly and i dont eat spicy foods..i always clean with soap and i always put tissue on it..pls help im always cry for this
I used the cayenne pepper remedy about 6 months ago. I was miserable for years before, but now im happy to report that my a-hole feels wonderful. It really works.
I'm sorry for many of you that's suffering from hammerroids; the home remedy I have sounds gross but it worked in my case. Two things 1. Application of crushed garlic soaked in olive/ coconut oil(repeat every 3-4 hours)- burns like hell for 10-15 mins but if repeated for 3-5 days- trust me you can see the difference. 2. If garlic does not work, try Applying Vicks vapoub ( yes! The one you use during a cold)...I did this for 5 days.. And I no longer suffered with a flare up once in 2-3 months!!! I would highly recommend Homeopathy as well... There is hope, pls drink 3-4iters of water, eat healthy and get moderate exercise- you'll see a change! Good luck to all!!!
Grew this thing on my rear a few days ago,doc said its hemmoroids gave me proctosedyl and said do a epson salt bath.but stepping infornt of traffic seems like a quicker fix thise things are torture
Hi I've been in agony for months with this external and internal hemorrhoid. Please help me I can't stand it anymore. Thanks.
I woke up a few days with a growth on my ass... I freaked out at first... took a photo with my phone and googled it and found it was hemmorhoids... I live in the Caribbean and am wondering if there is any bush/home remedy that i can use to get rid of the wart... Doctors on island just make things worst so you can go back to them every month for check up but nothing gets fixed. desperately awaiting a response...
My brother is suffering from hemorrhoids, ever since he used a cream for Irritable bowel. Did you ever hear about this? Thanks a lot for your help.

I have been plagued with hemorrhoids for 27 years, since being pregnant. Bad external ones! Flair ups would keep me in bed. I have tried every cream and suppository known to man to no avail. Then I tried an ice cube! Wrapped in a wash cloth and held it on as long as I could. After the melting of one cube I was up and going again. It's VERY uncomfortable but I have done it several times over the years and it works. The other thing, I started taking Black Seed Oil for general health reasons and to my surprise my hemorrhoids have almost completely gone, I mean I had them BAD externally and were ever present even if they were not flared up! Don't throw good money after bad until you try an ice cube first.
i had hemorrhoids years ago but someone gave me a home remedy ointment and i have not had a hemorrhoid problem since.
Instant coffee/coffee causes my hemmorrhoid to flare up. Laying off the coffee for a week or two and I'm fine.
I have never had hemroids in my life, my husband was actually trying to push them back in me,is this ok?
Tucks(witch hazel.hemorrhoidal pads) are the best. It will relieve itching discomfort, irritation, and burning. Dissapearance of hemorroids will occur from 2 to 5 days. tip: don't shave or wear thongs until your 100% sure it's healed.
i have a question. I had an internal hemorrhoid and for about a week i had blood in my stool.I went to the doctors and they told me it was an internal hemorrhoid that was vein was a little inflammed so they prescribed suppositories. The next day my bleeding stopped but i havent used a suppository. I have been fine for a couple months now not having blood in my stool but i can still feel a little bulge. Will the bulge go away over time or should i take a suppository?
How do u sleep w these dang things? This is first time I every had them and I'm in so much pain. Help.
I see! Basically, these are the usual cause of hemorrhoid. Does irregular intake of fluid also contribute in having hemorrhoid?
I am sorry to hear that you have been suffering with the disease. But I would suggest you find a good homeopath in your area. Don't try to treat it your self. Homeopathy could be expensive like around 500 dollars for first couple of visits. www.homeopathic.org is agood site to search for them in your area. Let me know where in california you are may be i can recommend one for you. I wish I could help I have just started to learn homeopathy but i could ask my teacher to recommend somebody for you.
hello john... first of all, thank for the response. i am from california. i've never heard of homeopathy but i just researched it a little bit after i read your posting. didn't it convincing enought to try though. i am just afraid that it will make things worse since i read that there could be aggravation. i am thinking that maybe some chinese medicines/herbs could help but i don't know. i bought a book on chinese medicine and one of treatments was eating clams and also boiled banana with crystal sugar. i tried them and i think it works a little bit by having lesser pain but the problem is still there. i could not believe some people have had this problem for almost half their life, including me. sad, because frankly, it also affects your sex life. :(
Where are you from? Have you tried homeopathy?

Hello guys! I want to try petroleum jelly but I'm not sure if it works, can anybody vouch for me if it really works so I can try it. Also, I tried soaking in the tub with warm water and baking soda, but the bump in my anus is still there. Please help! Thank you!
try ultraproct cream for external ultraproct supository for internal!!
the best remedy, natural, and fast for me in the world arehttp://804349-ilax4ftbfn9ug8m0n5w.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=IDAUGUST82011
Stop fucking in the ass and your shit won't bleed bitch!
We would like to pay you to advertise our hemorrhoids cream on your site. Please reply if this is something you maybe interested in.
Great suggestions here. For external, there is also petroleum jelly. I washed with water (soaking in warm water with salt seems like a good idea, too) patted (not wiped) dry, dried fully with hair dryer on lowest setting, and then applied petroleum jelly.
I don't know if what I have qualifies as a hernia, but the area around the anus is raw and weeping. Has been painful to walk due to the friction.
Bleeding is also a sign of colon cancer - better to get a check up too.
My A$$ hole is on fire. It feels like blades of glass ripping it apart. Does anyone want to trade me A-holes.
mix salt and OJ in an 8 ounce glass, afterwords you take two fish oil vitamins and a shot of white vinegar. Then it should be shrinking within seconds. Trust me, i do it all the time, my mother taught me this remedy. Good luck you guys!
@bobik Try this one, lots of people contributing with their own experiences: http://www.myhemorrhoidshometreatment.org/hemroids-symptoms/i-have-been-bleeding-from-my-butt-what-causes-this
I'm having the same issue as many others and looking for a solution. I noticed that I have increased occurrences when I eat junk food and/or increase my weight. So my solution so far has been to drop some weight and eat less fried/fatty food. Seems to be working somewhat. I have also looked for hemorrhoids home treatment forums for suggestions and the diet seems to be on the top of the list of everyone else.
i love the comments and all the natural hemorrhoids remedies, i found some useful tips here: http://naturalremedyforhemorrhoids.com/

Sam, how did you use the black seed oil?

I. Haave suffered from constipation all my life. I was born with it, even. After my first child was born I developed hemorroids. (23 yrs now) Their so bad, their blocking me from going to the bathroom. I have the both inside and out. I now am suffering with upset stomach and throwing up. I'm scared as to what all this is doing annd will do to me if something isn't done about itt soon and my husband just could care less. He won't get medical insurance for me to be seen by a doctor. I'm going to try the cayenne pepper. Hope this doesn't harm my hyatle hernia.
I suffered from hemorrhoids constantly for months, and someone told me about cayenne pepper benefits. I started taking cayenne pills I got from Walmart and then I realized that the next morning I did not have hemorrhoidal pain. I had no idea that they healed hemorrhoids and I looked on the web and saw a lot of sites that said just that. Well, I'm here to tell you that cayenne pepper works! I also bought some powdered cayenne pepper and mix a half teaspoon in hot water and drink it like hot tea. It is not bad. Just spicy water. I also eat high fiber cereal in the morning. You would think that bowel movements would burn, but they don't at all. Read all the benefits on cayenne pepper on websites. Also, if you have warts, put apple cider vinegar on it and cover it. The wart will be gone in a few days.

Proctofoam is by far the best "cure" for hems. I highly recommend getting a prescription for it.
Crush 2 50mg vitamin b6 tabs into powder. antihistamine shrinks swelling.
Crush 1 bromelein tablet. Protease dissolve blood clots
1 500 MG Capsule Witch Hazel. Astringent heals tightens blood vessels.
1 1000mg capsule Aloe Vera Gel. Pierce into empty container such as carmex. Heals wounds
1" strip of Hydrocortisone Gel. reduces itch
500mg Capsule Licorice Cortisole and estrogen like Shrinks
1/2 Teaspoon Vasaline Petrolium Jelly Lubricates and is suspension for the ingredients.
Mix thouroughly apply as needed.
I have had problems with constipation all my life. Im pretty sure it's because of my unbalanced diet and lack of water intake. Now that im older my body is telling me to stop it by acting out and giving me hemorrhoids. I would get them once in a blue moon but this latest one is atrocious. Im gonna try the warm baths, Prep H, Witch Hazel. Zinc oxide and anything else i can get my hands on. Wish me luck!
YES warm baths are the best, but i put salt in the water to me SALT fixes everything its like a HEALANT...i fixed my sons INGROWN TOE nail and he was due for an operation...SALT fixes everything~~
i just want to help those who are in bad pain of there hemroids specially those who are residing in U.A.E. since the medicine here are limited, there is one available in the market named Neo Healar ointment, it will helps you a lot... i promise..
The Solarcaine soothes the pain instantly. Thanks TC.
Got them BAD! Inside and out. Going to try Peggie's cure and I'll post my findings. Wish me luck.
How cayenne pepper will cure hemorrhoids????? In India we consider it the root cause for hemorrhoids.
Here is a remedy using oak bark:
(added in http://hemorrhoidsblog.wordpress.com/)
- Pour 1lt=1000ml upon 3 spoonfuls of dried bark of Oak branches and leave it
for 10-15 min, covered,in order to release its substances.
Moisture a piece of cotton with this infusion and apply it every night on your sensitive area.
The rind of Oak branches is very styptic and healing.
Good luck everybody!
Boil chamomile in water, then leave it for some time to get cold and moisture cotton with it and leave it on the sensitive area for the night. It is anti -inflammating.
ever since i can remember i have had bowel movement problems and have always suffered from hemrroids my mother told me to just push it back in..i still get them every once in awhile and they are so bad they affect the way i walk and sit..im gonna try what peggie said
The closest thing to an overnight cure for hemorrhoids is Proctofoam. Ask your doctor for a script.
In my case nuts exacerbate the condition
The best relief I have gotten has been from a pharmacy recommendation: buy the tucks circle wipes spray the pad with solarcain (first aid spray for for sunburns, scrapes, etc) then apply to external hemorrhoid. After this apply Prep-h or some other medicated cream that shrinks the tissue. Eat lots of dried prunes everyday and youll be good to go oh and hot baths daily!
Sometimes ago i found a good solution here:
The most important decision in your life:
Maybe it would seem like an ad, but this herbal remedy saved me !!! Go to www.byebyehemorrhoids.com and try this out. If you have not been healed by the above ,then make the remedy at home and maybe be cured permanently like I did!
I've got this stomach condition that is the most ''moody'' thing ever. I can go from diarrhea to constipation in a matter of hours. I eat fiber and all, but between the different extremes i get a recurring hemorrhoid every couple of months. The creams and stuff work for a while, but it always eventually comes back. I also got a job where i just stand for the entire time, so I've read standing that long can cause them too. I'd rather not go to the doctor, but damn this shit sucks.
i got drunk and let my boyfriend stick it in my bum and now its flared up again... take it out i gotta poop! no more drunken butt sex! my porn star days are over
SOAK 2 DRY FIGS 2 DRY APRICOT 2 DRY DATES 10 BLACK RASINS IN WATER OVERNIGHT AND EAT ON EMPTY STOMACHE IN THE MORNING DRINK THE WATER AS WELL
For itchy butt avoid sweet food and eat fresh Aloe vera and drink plenty of water plus eat more fresh friut and vegetable
Roids suck! My butt itches more than a retired prostitute. Sometimes I can't even sleep. I'm gonna try Peggie's pepper cure, but (no pun intended) if that doesn't work I'm going to go to the doctor. This sucks!
I can't sleep at night I shower too much all because my butthole itches I'm only thirteen and I cry because I'm too embaressed to say anything to my mom. I don't want some doctor sticking his finger in my butt. I hate this
I used to use the cayenne treatment mentioned below by Peggie, but it doesn't cure them forever. It does however help for a very long time. My problem is that all of a sudden my stomach has become very sensitive to the cayenne. Major pain. So I'm searching for another solution. Guess I'll try Witch Hazel.
i SUFFERED for decades
then i cut out coffee
reduced my consumption of red wine
included radishes (preferably black)
in my diet on a daily basis
i suffer no more!
An excellent source for hemorrhoids info is http://quickcare.org/gast/how-to-get-rid-of-hemorrhoids.html
take 4 teaspoons of pure ghee(desi ghee) everyday and stool will definitely be easy to pass along with diet full of fibre.
How much of an impact does tea tree oil hold for helping with them? If you apply it many times throughout the day how long would you say it might take to start seeing results of fading?
This sounds like it would be counterproductive but my husband tried this and IT REALLY WORKS! Put 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper in 8 oz water. Drink. Do this twice a day for one week. You will never suffer from hemorrhoids again! This really works! Plus cayenne aids in digestion and is just an all-around awesome spice! www.cheapcheez.com
i have been haveing problems with this and it is hard to deal with i dont wont it to turn in to cancer so what do i do
