Depends on how bad: Warm sitz baths, sitting in a warm tub for 20 minutes, two or three times a day may be helpful. Drink plenty of water. Over-the-counter medications may be helpful such as fiber, stool softeners, otc creams or suppositories, rx creams or suppositories, injections to scar the hemorrhoid, banding to shrivel it up, or surgery.
