Hemorrhoid: Depended on the severity of your external hemorrhoid. There are a few things you can do to relieve your problem. Eat high fiber diet, drink adequate amount of water. Use citrucel, one table spoon in 8 oz of water, drink daily. Avoid straining during bowel movement. Sitz bath 2-3 times daily with 5-10 minutes each. Avoid prolonged sitting on the toilet. Prep-h, three times per day. Last-sx.
