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.

Fiber supplement: It depends on the extent of your hemorrhoids which surgical treatment is best. However, most symptoms can be controlled by taking fiber supplements such as metamucil.
