Several: Depends whether this is internal or external hemorrhoids, thrombosed or clotted, bleeding. Generally warm tub soaks in plain water for 15-20 minutes several times per day and after a bm, bed rest if severely swollen and correcting constipation and/or diarrhea. Eat a high fiber diet and drink 80-100 oz of non caffeinated, non alcoholic fluids daily.
