If in doubt or not successful instituting above, get them checked by a colorectal surgeon. ...Read more

Fruits vegetable, whole grains are excellent sources of fiber. Also, fiber only works if u are well hydrated. Drink plenty of non-caffinated, non-alcoholic fluids to keep stools soft.

Hemorrhoids worse: Constipation is what makes hemorrhoids worse, both because of straining, and because of rubbing of a hard stool. Any drug or food which causes constipation will therefore make it worse. But you can prevent this by always taking stool softeners like Colace, and eating lots of salads and drinking lots of fluids to prevent constipation. ...Read more

Care of hemorrhoids: Sounds early stage. Medical therapies for hemorrhoids: bowel regimen (fiber, stool softeners, water to achieve two soft bowel movements daily), salves (prep h, desitin, anti fungals), and hygiene (shower, hair dryer area daily). If the medical therapy fails to control hemorrhoids, then ask for surgical referral. ...Read more
