Hemorrhoids are a common problem but not simple to deal with. They can be sensitive and painful and cause itching and irritation.
Very large or recurring hemorrhoids might need surgery but there are a few things you can do at home first to reduce the discomfort:
Eat lots of fiber--plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans
Try a sitz bath
Witch hazel can alleviate pain and itching
Eat blander food
Use stool softeners
