Hemorrhoids: Doctors treat non complicated hemorrhoids by helping patients avoid constipation, use hemorrhoidal preparations and complicated hemorrhoids with sitz baths and surgery.

Hemorrhoids: It is important not to make hemorrhoids worse. Cleaning off after a bowel movement should be gentle. Pre-moistened towlettes can be used to dab the anus. Don’t wipe/rub. Pat the anus dry after cleaning. Avoid using harsh soaps that contain dyes or aromas. Cotton underwear is helpful as it absorbs moisture well. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in a bathtub with warm water. There needs to >.

Provided original answer
enough water to submerge the anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. An alternative is placing ¼ cup of witch hazel & warm water in a basin. Soak for at least 15 minutes, at least twice a day.
