Time works but...: Depends on what you have already tried. The first things are conservative including infcreasing fluid and fiber in diet to ensure that you bms are soft, losing weight, limiting the time sitting on the toilet. Flare ups are then treated with creams, ointments. If still a problem you could try banding and finally excision/ligatiom. Surgery is really the only definitive treatment for this.

Water & Fiber: Start with water and fiber (psyllium - unflavored). Avoid using the ipad on the toilet. Speak with your doctor - make sure it is hemorrhoids and not something else.
