Tincture of Time: Acute flare ups are typically self-limited. If there is a thrombosed hemorrhoid this too will also go away althought you may end up with a tag of extra tissue. Repeated flare ups can lead to a prominence of extra hemorrhoidal tissue that will not go away and may need surgical intervention. Avoid constipation and use good bowel habits. No reading on the toilet.
