Diagnosis Hemorrhoid

More of us have them than care to admit.

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

Move around

Try a sitz bath

Witch hazel can alleviate pain and itching

Eat blander food

Use stool softeners
