Review diet: Though over the counter creams may soothe the symptoms of hemorroids, it is more important to determine its cause. I recommend taking your son to the doctor to review his diet, stool consistency and habits. Frequently, hemorrhoids occur because of constipation and extended periods of standing. Minimizing these risks will go a along way to minimize recurrence of hemorrhoids.
