Top 4 Hemorrhoids Home Treatment Options

Hemorrhoids Treatment options for the home are simple, yet can be as effective as many prescription medicines... without the sometimes nasty side effects.

  1. Sitz baths - Fill your bathtub with just enough warm water to cover the anal area. Do this several times a day, especially after you have had a bowel movement. Soak for about 15 minutes at a time. Be careful! If the water is too warm, it could burn you.
  2. Apply moist heat (such as warm, damp towels) several times a day.
  3. Apply ice several times a day for 10 minutes at a time. Follow this by placing a warm compress on the anal area for another 10 to 20 minutes.
  4. Take nonprescription pain relievers. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) can help with pain. Aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) can help with pain and swelling.
