Dr. Harold Mandel answered

Specializes in General Practice

Home remedies & exam: Simple home remedies which often help with hemorrhoids include eating more fiber, moderate exercise such as walking for 20-30 minutes daily, going to the bathroom immediately when you have an urge to defecate & warm water baths. I also suggest a general medical exam to make certain you don't have any infectious processes or other illnesses which should be treated. I wish you well with your health!
